Transcript: IBM Business Analytics in Insurance Role of Analytics in The Travelers Analytics Defined Introduction Emerging Trend in Business Analytics Evolving with Analytics - IBM Coffee + Conversation Descriptive Analysis: It is the analysis we get from our web server and it helps in quickly understanding what has happened in the past. Diagnostics Analysis: To go deeper into the data and understand why it has happened business intelligence tools can be used to get the insights. Predictive Analysis: Collecting data and correlating it with other user behavior datasets a whole new area is created to get real insights which helps in predicting about "What is likely to Happen?". Prescriptive Analysis: Once the future is predicted as what is going to happen it becomes easy to analyze what should be done in order to maximize good outcomes and also prevent potentially bad outcomes. Analytics in the World of Decision Making Before Analytics: Insurance companies like Travelers have TBs of data stored in warehouses since years. To them, data was useless and made no sense until the field of Business Analytics strongly came into the enterprise world. Thank You In the late 2000's business analytics was introduced to represent the key analytical component in BI. Based on a survey of over 4,000 information technology(IT) professionals from 93 countries and 25 industries, the IBM Tech Trends Report(2011) identified business analytics as one of four major technology trends in the 2010s. ("A 2012 publication on Business Intelligence and Analytics authored by, Hsinchun Chen, Roger H. L. Chiang & Veda C. Storey ; Decmber,2012") Analytics is an emerging field of modern data analysis used to help companies and people drive important decisions. Analytics revolves around the data that exist on a daily basis. Business analytics comprises of solutions used to build analysis models and simulations to create fact based management to drive decision-making. Advantages: Background: As per many companies, there are huge opportunities in the field of Analytics but, they have a fairly limited budget and resource pool to deploy. Another challenge faced by many companies is with historic IT infrastructure which isn't optimal for big data analytics, so some of the data extraction processes are fairly clunky. Apart from this the triple challenge that companies face: deciding which data to use (and where outside your organization to look), handling analytics (and securing the right capabilities to do so), and using the insights you've gained to transform your operations. Misconceptions around these tasks trip up many companies The gap between relevant analytics and user's strategic business needs is characterized by several challenges: 1. Cycle time 2. Analytic time and expertise 3. Business goals and metrics 4. Goals for data collections and transformations 5. Distributing analysis results 6. Integrating data from multiple sources ("A 2002 publication of the emerging trends in business analytics, authored by Ron Kohavi, Neal J.

Transcript: Predicting Delinquent Customer Credx company data Credit card provider having approx 70k customers. Demographic data: Includes customer level information on age, gender, income etc. Credit Bureau data: Includes the variables such as 'no of times 30DPD or worse in last 3/6/12 months', outstanding balance, number of trades etc. Introduction Performance tag PERFORMANCE TAG Both the files contain a performance tag which states that whether the customer is defaulted or not. If the customer is paying loan on time or the customer has gone 90 days past due or worse in the past 12 months after getting a credit card. Analysing the given data Analysing the given data 1. According to the given data, We can say that age group of most of the CredX customers are between 35 to 55. 2. Number of males customers in the CredX company are thrice than the number of Female customers. 3. There are 71295 customers, out of which approx 61000 are married. 4. Most of the customers have 3 dependents whereas few customers have only 4 to 5 dependents. REsults DATA CLEANING There are 1425 customers who are not paying the credit card loan back on time that means almost 5% customers are defaulters. First, We checked the duplicates in the data by using group_by function. There are 3 duplicates in both of the data i.e. Credit Bureau and Demographic data. Checking Duplicates We checked the class of all the variables, if categorical independent variables are factors, if dependent categorical variable is integer (not factor), both of these are done to use the woe and IV functions effectively Class of all variables checking for NA in Performance.Tag i.e dependent categorical variable, missing values in dependent variable cannot be practically solved, thus we resort to removing them from the dataset. CHECKING FOR NA IN PERFORMANCE TAG WOE FUNCTION WOE & IV FUNCTION It can handle the missing values by creating separate bins for missing values. Easy to remove outliers. It can handle the categorical data. There are a number of unavailable entries (NA) and outlier values within the data, We will replace these values with the respective WOE values, indicating a relationship with the respective target value. For this, we make use of the scorecard package. WOE ANALYSIS We have plotted woebin of Average Credit Card Utilization in last 12 months, there are 4 bins in the graph. we can see that woe_bin created one extra bin for missing values that means 1.5% values are missing from this data. Almost 50.9% customers used their CC from 1 to 16 times in a year where as only 9.3% customers used their card more than 16 and below 24 times. We can see that 72.3% of customers delayed their payment 1 times whereas only 11% of customers delayed their payment in 90 days more than 2 times. EXAMPLE 2 IV STATISTICS iv statistics It helps to rank variables on the basis of their importance. CREDX IV ANALYSIS Vinayak Balachandra Menon kamaldeep kaur Xinkai Zhou Team
