Automating the Retail Churn Prediction Template? RRS feed

  • Question

  • What's the general process for automating the Retail Churn Prediction template?  One of our business users developed a 4 step experiment using this template and would like to automate it, but none of the steps turn into web services (including step 3 which is where the model is supposed to be trained), so I'm not sure how to automate this kind of experiment.

    We know how to create a basic experiment from a blank template, train a model, publish it as a web service, and then consume that web service as a batch (push data to blob storage, kick off web service, monitor its status until it completes, and then retrieve the output), but this Retail Churn Template seems a lot more complicated.

    Has anyone else done anything with this type of experiment?  Was it even intended to be used on an ongoing basis for churn predictions or was it meant to be used for one-time analysis?

    Thank you!
