Wise Practitioner – Predictive Analytics Interview Series:

Nishant Sharma at Charter Communications

In anticipation of his upcoming conference presentation, Model Based Fiber Network Expansion at Predictive Analytics World for Business Las Vegas, June 3-7, 2018, we asked Nishant Sharma, Director, Predictive Analytics at Charter Communications, a few questions about his work in predictive analytics.

Q: In your work with predictive analytics, what behavior or outcome do your models predict?

A: Our models are mainly focused toward: 

  • Identifying the right prospect/candidate to approach for sale for a specific networking product, which could be a cross-sell or a new customer. The prospect identification is also helpful in sizing up the market, resource allocation and territory assignment for sales teams.
  • Determining the cost of expanding the fiber network in the footprint.
  • Calculate the probability of customer churn to take proactive measures. 

Q: How does predictive analytics deliver value at your organization – what is one specific way in which it actively drives decisions or operations? 

A: Models based on predictive analytics help in determining which buildings would be the right candidate for fiber expansion, what is the right size of the market and how many sales reps should be allocated for a region, optimizing the marketing campaigns.

See the answers to the following and other interviews on the PAW Blog. 

Q: Can you describe a quantitative result, such as the predictive lift of your model or the ROI of an analytics initiative?
Q: What surprising discovery or insight have you unearthed in your data?

Q: Sneak preview: Please tell us a take-away that you will provide during your talk at Predictive Analytics World.
