I'm not sure we can do this with one cut. Isolated versus interacting decisions strikes me as a reasonable way to differentiate business rules from optimization, but to me prediction is an input to optimization (and other decision processes), not a competitor to it. Many optimization models require estimates or forecasts of parameters.
