Prescriptive Analytics Offer the Best Recommended Actions for your Supply Chain
Prescriptive Analytics is a type of Advanced Analytics that is rising in popularity and adoption. Unlike Descriptive (focused on reporting with basic trend or pattern recognition) or Predictive Analytics (focused on predicting the future with forecasting techniques), Prescriptive Analytics determines ways in which business processes should evolve or be modified.
AIMMS was recently listed as a vendor for Prescriptive Analytics in Gartner's Hype Cycle for Chief Supply Chain Officers 2016 report. The company was also listed as a sample vendor for Optimisation in the recent Gartner Hype Cycle for Data Science 2016 report. As Gartner explains, the use of Prescriptive Analytics and Optimization can help companies improve decision-making and solve critical business problems more quickly.
Today, no company is immune to disruption. Events like the Brexit, fluctuating demand and copious amounts of data are compelling global leaders to find new opportunities for improving growth, innovation, profitability and agility. Increasing supply chain complexity can slow you down just when you need to accelerate and outpace competitors. To thrive in this challenging environment, the use of analytics for fact-based decision making is essential.
