To perform prediction analysis over large scale data, coming from operation management process, different prediction analytics techniques can be used. MapReduce is resulting as a great solution for processing the large volume of data using a parallel framework. There is a need to modify the conventional techniques for extracting information from this type of data using parallel framework of MapRecue. These modified parallel techniques have been discussed in this chapter. In order to achieve efficiency and scalability MapReduce framework based methods are used. These techniques helps in predicting different behaviours of operations. There are several other techniques which can be used for similar purpose.
