How does Prediction Analysis work in Oracle Talent Management Cloud?
Using Oracle Data Mining, Oracle HCM Cloud delivers a set of indicators that are run through an advanced algorithm. This benchmarks a customer's historical data against weighted factors and performs a prediction analysis. As more transactional data is added, the algorithm adapts automatically to refine its predictions. Users can drill into the analysis to determine which indicators have been triggered so that they can take corrective action. A good example of Predictive Analytics  is employee attrition using a 9-box view of your workforce and understanding the attributing factors of each employee at risk of leaving your organization.

Hiring managers have the ability to specify and ask questions around candidate experience and subsequently score each given answer.
