Main Topic for Predictive Analytics World Berlin 2018:

From prediction to decision – Predictive Analytics is the path to data driven business

Willi Brandt once said „The best way to predict the future, is to make the future“. The result a was a policy of détente that changed the relationship between the two German states in a sustainable manner – against any prediction by his political opponents and political experts

Forecasts may be difficult in times of uncertainty, but it is precisely this insecurity that offers the opportunity for a change. As data scientists, we prefer models with high predictive accuracy. But how useful is a 99% certainty that a customer will be lost to an account exceutive? He or she wants to know which customers can be prevented from giving notice – and above all, how! That’s the subtle difference between churn prediction and churn prevention – between predictive and prescriptive analytics. In short, data science must not remain the information source for the company – it must become the decision maker. In numerous case studies, deep dives and keynote speeches by experienced experts from well-known companies you wil learn at this year’s Predictive Analytics World for Business how you can successfully implement this change in your organization.
