Predictive analytics are an analytics method that analyze current and historical data to make predictions about future events. Predictive analytics use analytics techniques such as machine learning, statistical modeling, and data mining to help organizations identify trends, behaviors, future outcomes, and business opportunities.
Neural networks are advanced analytics techniques used to determine the accuracy of information gained from regression models and decision trees. Neural networking identifies nonlinear similarities between disparate data, and is particularly useful when knowing the scope of what may happen is more important than understanding why those possibilities might occur.
Predictive analytics can help IT performance by identifying risks or informing you of potential problems with your IT infrastructure. Instead of waiting for an error report—perhaps citing an equipment failure—ops teams can use predictive analytics to proactively find and address problems before they affect your environment, which can also save your organization time and money.
You can also use predictive analytics to create risk assessments, prevent security issues, and avoid unplanned downtime by looking for anything unusual on a network and identifying potential vulnerabilities by examining all of the actions that are happening in real time.
Automation tools can be used as a companion to predictive analytics to remediate identified issues or implement changes based on predicted outcomes.
