Enterprises have lots of solid choices for big data predictive analytics.
That’s the key takeaway from Forrester’s just released Wave for Big Data Predictive Analytics Solutions for the second quarter of 2015.
That being said, the products Forrester analysts Mike Gualtieri and Rowan Curran evaluated are quite different.
Data scientists are more likely to appreciated some, while business analysts will like others. Some were built for the cloud, others weren’t.
They all can be used to prepare data sets, develop models using both statistical and machine learning algorithms, deploy and manage predictive analytics lifecycles, and tools for data scientists, business analysts and application developers.
