JMP data modeling challenge launched by ENBIS

ENBIS, the European Network for Business and Industrial Statistics, has launched the next JMP Challenge sponsored by JMP. You have until June 15 to submit your solution showing how to turn data into practical value.

The ENBIS Challenge by JMP is a yearly activity aimed at promoting sound practices of statistical modeling. In the past, participants competed against one another by submitting their solutions to a predefined problem using given data. This year's challenge is different: You can submit a solution to any data modeling problem using your own data. Everybody can participate, no matter if you are from industry or academia, regardless of where you live and whether you are ENBIS member or not.

Some rules apply, though:

  • Consider all aspects of the model-building process and focus on real-life business problems.
  • Be creative and smart. Use an innovative, simple but comprehensive approach.
  • No preset topic. No fixed submission format. Use any software tool.
  • The winners of up to three prizes will be announced during the ENBIS-13 conference in Ankara, Sept. 15-19. One special prize may be given for a creative solution using JMP tools.

    Good luck!

    The latest JMP challenge should prompt massive response based on the request: " submit a solution to any data modeling problem using your own data."

    Luckily a few added rules:

    Does this apply only to numerical modeling, or does it include graphical modeling that deals with a real-life business problem and illuminates the solution without the need for numeric modeling of any kind? Most real business problems can be analyzed graphically, and solved, without building complex and opaque regression-type models.

    Hi Mike,

    the challenge rules do not explicitely ask for numerical modeling. In case you got your solution based on graphical modeling and consider this as a nice ENBIS challenge submission please go ahead.

    In JMP, graphical exploration and numerical modeling typically go hand in hand, though.

    Good luck,
