By now most people know that there is a surge of companies jumping on the Big Data train but, why? Some companies are skeptical of what Data Analytics can really do for them.
Does our company gather enough data? How can we solve our problems if we are receiving our data too late? Aren’t Data Analytics expensive? How do I know I will make my money back?
These questions are the reason why companies are dragging their feet. A solution to problems such as receiving data too late is Predictive Analytics. Predictive Analytics is a system in which data analysts study the trends and patterns to identify key opportunities for improvement. By analyzing mass amounts of data and standardizing it in a way that can be understood, data scientists allow the company to make quicker, more informed decisions. Through becoming more efficient, companies save more money and often greatly exceed the original cost of analytics.
Some companies may question the accuracy of prediction, but it is better to make decisions with predictive insight rather than blindly guessing. Predictive analysis gives companies the opportunity to see trends in their history so that they may change certain elements and become more efficient. It is the companies who choose to blindly move forward who will be doomed to repeat the failures of their past.
