Wouldn’t your company love to own a crystal ball that could actually glimpse the future and help every employee make the best possible decisions throughout the day? Enter predictive analytics.
Instead of relying on human intuition, companies can use predictive analytics to enlighten even the seemingly small daily choices that impact each of their operational "funnels" - for sales, recruiting and customers. Today’s predictive technologies let you use data science to factor in thousands of signals about any problem - whether it be increasing revenues, sourcing better candidates, or improving customer satisfaction. With a crystal ball like that, you can look beyond historical data and bring in external data points to make smart decisions and blow past your competition by operating at peak efficiency.
In this session, Gild, Gainsight and Infer will take you behind the curtain to explore how next generation apps are using predictive techniques to revolutionize the way companies operate.
