Predictive Analytics World Delivers the Promise of Big Data to Boston


With only hindsight being 20/20, predictive analytics is being used by businesses to predict customer behavior, future market conditions and obstacles that were once unforseen. Accenture released their research on 600 business executives that said their companies have tripled their use of analytics tools since 2009. These companies attribute this massive increase to the trend towards “advanced application of analytics” to increased “sophistication in analytics capabilities that anticipate tomorrow rather than explain yesterday.”

Dr. Michael Wu gives the definition of predictive analytics as “a variety of statistical, modeling, data mining, and machine learning techniques to study recent and historical data, thereby allowing analysts to make predictions about the future.” Dr Wu is the Chief Scientist at Lithium Technologies, a social customer community software & social media marketing firm.
