Predictive Analytics Masterclass November 2018

Leverage analytics for better business decision and impact on bottom-line.

Predictive analytics is the use of data, statistical algorithms and machine learning techniques to identify the likelihood of future outcomes based on historical data. The objective is to go beyond knowing what has happened in order to provide the best predictions of what will happen in the future. 

Whether you are in marketing, risk and compliance, customer service, operations or any other business unit, your data can show where you are and predict where you are going. The use of predictive analytics will impact how your company make strategic decisions and drive the bottom line.
