Dr Joachim Schwarz
Predictive Modelling in the field of Customer Relationship Management
The webinar focusses on one main problem of every customer relationship management department: How to identify those customers, which are more likely to e.g. terminate their customer relationship or to buy a new product? One way to solve this is predictive modelling. We will have a look on typical data a company has about their customers, and how it can be used to develop a model to predict a specific customer behaviour. A special focus will be laid on limitations of this approach and, last but not least, its specific potential to generate or to save money.

Moving from R&D to Sales and Marketing: the business analytics experience of a statistician at Lilly
Typically, pharmaceutical companies invest more money on sales and marketing than they do on R&D, yet very few statisticians work to support sales and marketing organizations. At Lilly, we created a group of statisticians to support analytical problems in Sales and Marketing. This talk will describe the types of issues we encounter and the statistical techniques we use to tackle these issues.

Looking over the fence: What does Data Science mean outside of life sciences and what can we learn?
The last 10 years have seen significant growth in companies investing in Big Data, Data Science, Machine Learning and AI. The key driver for organisations investing in these initiatives is to generate insight from data that can be used to drive better decision making. However, as each industry has different aims and constraints, the adoption of data-driven approaches can vary significantly.
This presentation will look at core concepts of data science, such as the 3 Vs of data, and how different industries have looked to implement these concepts. In particular, we will look at possible opportunities for the pharmaceutical sector to adapt successful approaches from other industries.
