Predictive analytics software helps you to find non-obvious, hidden patterns in large data sets. Current tools for predictive analytics, such as SPSS (an IBM® company) and IBM InfoSphere™ Warehouse, expect data to be represented in an appropriate way before the actual analysis can take place. However, you may have cases where the data you want to analyze is not readily available in a format these tools can recognize.
