Re: Predictive Analytics
I'd say predictive analytics will become table stakes. The next wave will be "prescriptive" analytics. The first tells you what's going to happen while the second tells you what to do about it. Analytics in general are increasingly being embedded into applications. From there, it shouldn't be a huge leap to figure out what levers to push when orders come up short, quality rates decline, or whatever other condition crops up within the context of a process or workflow.
