Ever wish you could predict the future? So do companies big and small. That’s why they turn to predictive analytics to identify the likelihood of future outcomes based on historical data. Predictive analytics professionals apply a variety of techniques like data mining, predictive modeling, deep learning algorithms, machine learning, and even artificial intelligence to sets of data to, quite literally, predict trends and behavior patterns.
Predictive analytics proves to be a growing area of significance for businesses around the world. Unlike business analytics, which focuses on past performance patterns, predictive analytics uses data big or small to anticipate—and plan for—the future.
