What if you could predict the level of crimes in certain areas within a given timeframe? You could use that information to maximise spend on staffing, how best to allocate your resources in specific timeframes and identify groups of areas to understand why that level of crime occurs in the first place. Crime today is a sensitive topic – it’s on the rise and we need to understand the implications to best understand how to deal with it.
Alteryx allows us to combine vast amounts of unstructured public data from multiple data sources and easily prepare it for advanced analytics. Once the data is ready, we utilise advance techniques to produce meaningful insights so that we can understand and be ready for what is highly likely to happen – the key to a stable foundation in delivering valuable, actionable insight to ensure high quality decision making. We showcase our results using Qlik Sense, a highly accessible tool that allows you to understand the story that we are telling.
Our webinar showcases these powerful tools, generating a comprehensive end-to-end toolkit that empowers you to tell your whole story – past, present and future. We demonstrate how to perform various data preparation tasks, data investigations, time series forecasts and predictive grouping to understand the level of crime we have recorded at present, and the level we will have in future. The methods we have established can be applied to any business environment, for instance optimised resource allocation, knowing how many items to manufacture seasonally to maximise sales or assessing the viability of entering a new market to name a few.
