Predictive analytics can help you use past data to predict likely future outcomes. While these techniques have long been used in forecasting, risk aversion, and even fraud detection, in the digital world, predictive can be extremely powerful.

These days the amount of digital marketing data and the availability of enormous processing power make the application of predictive analytics in the digital marketing space particularly exciting.
