Well time has flown by and its now time to present tomorrow.We had discussion with our client and briefed them about all that we had done and shared the presentation with Drew too. It feels good that the hard work has finally paid where every likes the work we have done. The Capstone project taught us a lot. Here are a few leaning points which I had from this project: Be ready for challenges and roadblocks. The path is not going to be easy. Reaching out to people (experts in the field) for advice and feedback. Well, given that this... Continue reading

Well, can't believe we are in the last week of our project. The journey was filled with challenges and some interesting as well surprising insights.I guess that is how it is when you work with data and the answer for one question still seems to be not clear while there could be many possible reasons for it.However, that being said we are almost ready with our final report and adding to add things in a logical order that makes sense for the client. Well, one thing I have realized with project that predicting something is not at all an easy... Continue reading

Do stock markets and movies have something in common.Well initially it seems they don't, but when your think from the perspective of our project, then it makes sense. This analogy was introduced to us by Drew in our last project review meeting and he gave us a different perspective on our project. We are researching more as to how can we incorporate it for our clients use and are also planning to meet Finance Professor in this regard.This will give an interesting perspective for our project.

The theme for this week was mostly data and analysis. After the meeting with our Data Analysis professor and his review, he suggested that we add some more data from the middle ranges of properties which we had missed out on and then perform our analysis again.So, it was again time for adding more data to our set and performing analysis.After testing the data rigorously with almost 35 tests, we have something that looks good.So, now again we have to get it reviewed by the professor.So, if all goes well with this review then looks like we are very close...

Well, what a week it had been. After facing some significant challenges in collecting the data, it was not now time for the core part and the most crucial part of our project, the analysis. We evaluated several software packages available and finally decided to go with XLMiner, so challenges were to understand the software package and how it works and finally get down to using it to perform our analysis. Getting yours hand dirty with data, now was the time for it. So, yes the data analysis has been performed, but are we there yet? The answer is no,... Continue reading

So, this week will be very crucial as the analysis part will begin for us. Also to make things more well rounded for our project, we added... Continue reading

This has been the most challenging week so far for our Capstone project.The problem we have involves business analytics, and is very crucial for the company, as they will base their decision on the models we suggest. Understanding and evaluating all the data modelling techniques and tools out there, was a complex task.At first everything seemed so overwhelming and complicated, but as I went through it, things seem much clearer. So last week after understanding all these tools and modelling techniques, and having researched about the industry in the previous weeks, combining everything we finalized on our key variable which...

Last week we did some hard core research of the models out there which we could use for our project.There are a lot of possibilities, and things are complex with so many factors and properties to analysis.Things are not so easy, as choosing a model we need to decide if it will work for all different properties out there which our company has, like music,video games etc. That seems to be a challenge, for which we need to figure out a way.The target for us this week is to finalize on the model we plan to use for the project....

On May 8th 2017, we had our official Capstone Kick off with Drew telling us about the course details like the structure, grading, about past projects, clients and of course how challenging this course is.I think it gave us an idea of what lies ahead and how much effort we have to put in for this course.Capstone had been the most awaited course for me as it is here that we actually get to work on an actual client project where we can apply things that we have learnt.I was eagerly waiting for my project and I am very happy...
