Back in April we hosted Text Analytics 101, the first in this year’s Applying Business Analytics Webinar Series. As many of you know, organizations today are faced with a flood of text-based content, a shortage of domain and subject-matter experts and an inability to analyze data in an automated, consistent manner. So we created this 101 session to provide practical, accessible advice about the methods and technologies that will enable you to improve efficiencies, ease staff resources and seamlessly incorporate text-based insights for better decisions. SAS’ Kathy Lange & Fiona McNeill walked 350+ attendees through a Text Analytics overview.

We had registrations from the US and 40 other countries and attendees joined us from a vast array of industries including communications, education, Federal Government, Financial Services, Health and Life Sciences, Retail & Manufacturing and State and Local Governments. Of the 350+ attendees about 40% of them responded to the post survey questions and shared some interesting feedback with us regarding the stage of text analytics adoption that they are in. From the results it looks to me like majority are in initial investigation & some more 101 sessions might just be what folks need to help understand the landscape.

Other attendees were assessing vendors, enhancing existing methods, some were reviewing technologies and several were already implementing and a couple were already in a testing phase. How about your organization? What phase are you in?
