predictive analytics uses different methods of analyzing and interpreting various data to create a near a current forecast of events that are likely to occur in some sectors of your business which impacts its overall performance.
Predictive analysis covers statistical techniques for studying data. This includes data mining, predictive modeling and machine learning as methods of making predictions about future events. Predictive analytics has the potential to:
– Spot customers who are likely to cancel a service or not renew it.
– Identify transactions that could be fraudulent.
– Create a preventive maintenance schedule.
– Business leaders can use predictive analytics to increase the – chances of success for many initiatives or to test a variety of scenarios quickly.
In tuis article, we will describe Best Predictive Analytics Software and Tools.

Predictive analytics platforms look at historical data and try to spot patterns. The process relies on data such as customer purchases, weather information or banking habits, statistics such as regression analysis and assumptions that the future will follow trends from the past.
Some types of predictive analytics software use machine learning to revise algorithms based on learnings from the data collected. Data experts and business department leaders can use predictive analytics to test new theories and products before committing to these decisions in the marketplace.
