Predictive Analytics – Get More From Your Investment
Predictive Analytics helps your organization go beyond reporting and dashboards by allowing you to anticipate change so that you can plan and carry out strategies that improve outcomes. Predictive analytics and data mining encompass a variety of statistical techniques from modeling, machine learning, and data mining that analyze current and historical facts to make predictions about future events. In business, predictive models exploit patterns found in historical and transactional data to identify risks and opportunities.
By applying predictive analytics solutions to data you already have, your organization can uncover unexpected patterns and associations and develop models to guide front-line interactions. This means you can prevent high-value customers from leaving, sell additional services to current customers, develop successful products more efficiently, or identify and minimize fraud and risk. Predictive analytics gives you the knowledge to predict and the power to act.
