#Chaid a Skillset for Data Science Engineers:
Chaid is one of the Chaid is one of mostly asked skills for Data Science engineers.The CHAID Analysis (Chi Square Automatic Interaction Detection) is a form of analysis that determines how variables best combine to explain the outcome in a given dependent variable. The model can be used in cases of market penetration, predicting and interpreting responses or a multitude of other research problems.

CHAID analysis is especially useful for data expressing categorized values instead of continuous values. For this kind of data some common statistical tools such as regression are not applicable and CHAID analysis is a perfect tool to discover the relationship between variables. One of the outstanding advantages of CHAID analysis is that it can visualize the relationship between the target (dependent) variable and the related factors with a tree

Different Scenarios where CHAID analysis can be used:

CHAID Analysis for Surveys -Most survey answers have categorized values instead of continuous values. Finding out the statistical relationship in this kind of data is a challenge. CHAID Analysis is a good solution for such survey studies.

CHAID Analysis for Customer Profiling -Based on historical customer data, CHAID Analysis can be used to analyze all characteristics within the file, for example, product/service purchased, dollar amount spent, major demographics and demography of the customers, and so on.

A blue print can be produced to provide an understanding of the customer profile: strong or weak sales of products/services; active or in-active customers; factors affecting customers’ decisions or preferences, and so on. Such customer profile will give the Sales & Marketing Team a clear picture of which type of person is most likely to buy the products and services based on factual purchase history, geo-demographics and lifestyle attributes.

CHAID Analysis for Customer Targeting -Recruiting new customers via direct contact (phone or mail) is a time consuming and costly effort. For most products or services, the hit rate is less than 1%. That means, in order to get a new customer, over one hundred contacts are required.

By mapping the current customer list to a general population database (e.g., SMR Residential Database that contains 12 million listed households), CHAID Analysis can find the household clusters that have much higher incidence rates than the average. By concentrating on these household clusters, the actual hit rate can be dramatically raised. The result is “Fewer phone calls or mail pieces with higher sales returns!” .

Different Types Of Payment Cards you need to know

The Credit Card (Shopping): The purpose o this card is to buy any item withing the limit prescribed by banks to cardholder. These cards can have both Magnetic stripe and Chip cards. 
Now a days all banks are issuing credit cards with CHIP and PIN. After entering the PIN by cardholder, then transaction starts for further processing.

The debit (ATM, Cash) card is a relatively new method of payment. It is different from a credit card because the debit cardholder pays with the money available in their bank account, which is debited immediately in real time. A debit card seems to be more dangerous compared to a credit card because the debit card is directly linked to the bank checking account and usually allows ATM cash withdrawals.

On the other hand, it is more protected by the required two-factor authentication (PIN number plus card itself). The real dangerous element of many branded debit cards is that they can be processed as credit cards, without entering the PIN.

The Gift card

The Sqoop in Hadoop story to process structural data

Why Sqoop you need while working on Hadoop-The Sqoop and its primary reason is to import data from structural data sources such as Oracle/DB2 into HDFS(also called Hadoop file system).
To our readers, I have collected a good video from Edureka which helps you to understand the functionality of Sqoop.

The comparison between Sqoop and Flume

The Sqoop the word came from SQL+Hadoop Sqoop word came from SQL+HADOOP=SQOOP. And Sqoop is a data transfer tool. The main use of Sqoop is to import and export the large amount of data from RDBMS to HDFS and vice versa.
