In this paper, the authors present CHEERUP: a general software environment for building, using and administering application-oriented probabilistic predictive monitoring systems (in the paper called "Portals"). Such specific "Portals" are used to monitor populations of subjects and get, for single subjects, probabilistic predictions about the occurrence of given undesired/desired events. Probabilistic predictive monitoring is a powerful tool for supporting decisions. It allows to take suitable measures in advance, measures aiming at preventing/favoring the occurrence of the undesired/desired event the application is centered on.
