About Us

Predixion was founded on the belief that predictive analytics has the power to create a smarter, safer and healthier world – and that access to this power should not be limited to a select few with extensive statistical knowledge. To achieve this vision, Predixion developed a self-service predictive analytics platform called Predixion Insight™ that simplifies the entire predictive process. 


Predixion Insight is designed for business analysts and other non-technical users to enable broader adoption of predictive analytics, but is powerful and flexible enough for data scientists. In addition, Predixion expedites the “Last Mile of Analytics™” – the deployment of powerful predictions directly to those that need them to take action – so the value of being predictive is realized immediately. 


More than 200 companies rely on Predixion to help drive better decisions every day.

OUR VISION


Predictive analytics has the power to create a smarter, safer and healthier world – and that power should not be limited to a select few with extensive statistical knowledge.
