Abstract: Big data analytics refers often a very complex process to examine the large and varied data sets to provide the organization to take smarter decisions and better results. Big data analytics is a form of advanced analytics including predictive, prescriptive models and statistical algorithms. The prescriptive analytics is a later stage of the Big data analytics which is not just anticipating what the event will happen as in the predictive analytics but also suggests the decision options and consequences of the decision. The paper addresses the survey of prescriptive analytics and the importance of prescriptive analytics. The prescriptive analytics techniques and methods include machine learning, operation research/management science, optimization techniques, mathematical formulation, and simulation techniques and methods. The paper discusses the techniques and methods, frameworks, and domain applications of prescriptive analytics.
