Companies increasingly want to find value in their unstructured (free text) data, which can be in the form of tweets, customer problem reports, email, call center logs, and many others.

The many Aster text analytic functions allow firms to get insight from this data, but it is often difficult to know which functions to use and in what order, as well as understanding the results. This session guides you step by step through the text analytics process. 

We start with the types of user questions that text analytics can answer, and the key properties of your data that you will need to know to answer these questions. We then list the steps to follow for each type of analytical question, including data preparation, Aster text analytical functions to use, and how to use the results. At each step, we describe the best practices to follow, and common misconceptions to avoid. You will come away understanding the path to getting the full value from your text data.
