Try before doing with Predictive Analysis

Predictive Analysis concerns the ability to perform advanced processing using data mining techniques for forecasting and prescriptive purposes. Moreover, it means being able to simulate actions and evaluate their effects on different assets. Knowage Predictive Analysis gives the opportunity to work with traditional data sources or external files, processing them with advanced algorithms written using R/Python and other scripting languages. For what-if purposes, Knowage PA provides an OLAP-based solution that allows the interactive simulation process over measures and dimensions.


Explore and navigate data on different detail levels and from different perspectives through drill-down, drill-across, slice-and-dice and drill-through options. Simulate new values at any level and evaluate the effects through every dimension, by comparing different scenarios and versions.

Knowage Predictive Analysis what-if


Data scientists write complex analytical models a normal user can then adopt in his daily evaluation. Thanks to a simple and parametric usage, advanced analytics becomes a for-all tool.
