​Survey: How to win with prescriptive analytics

​Take this quick, multiple choice survey and tell us about your company's plans for prescriptive analytics.

What is prescriptive analytics, and why does your business need it? It is not enough to simply gather data and model it anymore--you need to use it to create the best possible future for your business. Prescriptive analytics is how you do it.

Trying to predict what will happen in the future is no easy task. The growing popularity of prescriptive analytics, which leverages big data and machine learning (ML) to provide recommendations and forecast outcomes will certainly make it easier.

How do you set up an analytics infrastructure that sees around corners and gives you options to avoid a head-on crash? TechRepublic's sister site, Tech Pro Research, is conducting a survey to find out.

If you're familiar with your company's prescriptive analytics plan, we want to hear from you. The survey contains nine or fewer multiple choice questions and should take less than five minutes to complete.

All respondents will have a chance to enter their email at the end of the survey and receive a free copy of the resulting research report, which is normally only available to Tech Pro Research subscribers.
