Predictive Analytics Guide

Predictive analytics is information technology that produces a predictive score for each customer or other organizational element. Assigning these predictive scores is the job of a predictive model which has, in turn, been trained over your data, learning

from the experience of your organization. For more answers on data science visit the Predictive Analytics Guide for reading, training options and other resources.
