Organizations are looking to predict how customers will respond in the future, and realizing their historical data is an untapped resource. Beyond standard business reports and sales forecasts, predictive analytics offers actionable predictions for each customer. These predictions deliver more relevant content to each customer, improving response rates, click rates, buying behavior, retention and overall profit. For online applications such as e-marketing and customer care recommendations, predictive analytics acts in real-time, dynamically selecting the ad, web content or cross-sell product each visitor is most likely to click on or respond to, according to that visitor's profile.
