What is Prescriptive analytics? Which tools are used for prescriptive analytics?



Hi All

What is prescriptive analytics? What are the tools that currently support it?


Prescriptive analytics basically goes over and above predictive analytics and recommends (or rather prescribes) a series of action to the end user. It also tells, what would be the impact of taking these actions.

Please find a link to an article which explains the three different types: descriptive,predictive and prescriptive.
Hope this helps!!
