It's no longer enough to be able to predict what might happen-organizations also need to know how to respond to predictive insights. This white paper describes how predictive analytics and decision optimization can work together to create a powerful end-to-end decision management system.
The synergy between predictive analytics and decision optimization is critical to good decision making. Predictive analytics offers insights into likely future scenarios, and decision optimization prescribes best-action recommendations for how to respond to those scenarios given your business goals, business dynamics, and potential tradeoffs or consequences.
Together, predictive analytics and decision optimization provide organizations with the ability to turn insight into action—and action into positive outcomes.
In this white paper, you’ll gain a better understanding of:
The difference between predictive and prescriptive analytics
How predictive and prescriptive actions complement one another to help you achieve optimized business decisions
IBM’s approach to creating a powerful end-to-end decision management system

Is your data architecture up to the challenge of the big data era? Can it manage workload demands, handle hybrid cloud environments and keep up with performance requirements? Here are six reasons why changing your database can help you take advantage of data and analytics innovations.
Wikibon conducted in-depth interviews with organizations that had achieved Big Data success and high rates of returns. These interviews determined an important generality: that Big Data winners focused on operationalizing and automating their Big Data projects. They used Inline Analytics to drive algorithms that directly connected to and facilitated automatic change in the operational systems-of-record. These algorithms were usually developed and supported by data tables derived using Deep Data Analytics from Big Data Hadoop systems and/or data warehouses. Instead of focusing on enlightening the few with pretty historical graphs, successful players focused on changing the operational systems for everybody and managed the feedback and improvement process from the company as a whole.
With the advent of big data, organizations worldwide are
attempting to use data and analytics to solve problems previously
out of their reach. Many are applying big data and analytics
to create competitive advantage within their markets, often
focusing on building a thorough understanding of their
High-priority big data and analytics projects often target
customer-centric outcomes such as improving customer loyalty
or improving up-selling. In fact, an IBM Institute for Business
Value study found that nearly half of all organizations with active
big data pilots or implementations identified customer-centric
outcomes as a top objective (see Figure 1).1 However, big data
and analytics can also help companies understand how changes
to products or services will impact customers, as well as address
aspects of security and intelligence, risk and financial management,
and operational optimization.
