Analytics of Things: Golf a Good Walk Spoiled?
This paper demonstrates techniques using SAS software to combine data from devices and sensors for analytics. Base SAS, Data Integration Studio and Visual Analytics are used to query external services, import, fuzzy match, analyze and visualize data. Finally, the benefits of SAS Event Stream Processing models and alerts will be discussed.
To bring the analytics of things to life the following data are collected: GPS data from countryside walks, GPS and score card data from smart phones whilst playing golf and meteorological data feeds. These data are combined to test the old adage that golf is a good walk spoiled. Further, the use of alerts and potential for predictive analytics is discussed.
