This feature requires one of the following subscriptions: Genesys Cloud User 3, Genesys Cloud User 1 WEM Upgrade II, or Genesys Cloud User 2 WEM Upgrade I.

    Ensemble model and Theta method for workforce management automatic best method forecasting

    Administrators and contact center managers can now use the ensemble model and the Theta method when generating automatic best method forecasts. The ensemble model, a post processing activity, combines multiple forecasting models to create a single forecast. The Theta method uses the concept of modifying the local curvature of the time-series through a coefficient 'Theta' (the Greek letter θ) and directly applies it to the second differences of the data. These features increase the overall accuracy of the forecast and help to avoid situations where one model can overvalue a peak or valley. For more information, see Automatic Best Method forecast method overview. These feature require one of the following subscriptions: Genesys Cloud User 3, Genesys Cloud User 1 WEM Upgrade II, or Genesys Cloud User 2 WEM Upgrade I.
