Predictive Analytics Help Organizations to Save Cost, Increase Efficiency and Reduce Uncertaintyby Syntelli S. Marketing In a highly competitive economic environment, businesses cannot completely rely on decision-making techniques. Therefore, to analyze current and historical facts and to make predictions about future or unknown events, enterprises rely on predictive analytics that encompasses a variety of statistical techniques like predictive modeling, machine learning, and data mining to make future predictions. Predictive analytics is used by businesses to predict trends and behavioral patterns by extracting information from data. Analysis of the data provides a snapshot of the present and forecasts for the future. Sometimes these forecasts have new questions and accompanying methodologies that are more accurate than standard methods, increase efficiency and are more cost-effective.
Predictive analytics broad application across varied business functions:

McDonald's - McDonald's are applying predictive analytics to enhance customer experience and increase collaboration. Earlier also they have applied analytics to discover an error that is occurring in the drive-through orders after which they adopted new order-taking procedures and also upgraded audio equipment.
