Forecast vs Actual

Forecast vs. Actual allows you to compare how different predictions behave from different forecast points to different times in the future. Use the chart to help answer what, for your needs, is the best distance to predict. Forecasting out only one day may provide the best results, but it may not be the most actionable for your business. Forecasting the next three days out, however, may provide relatively good accuracy and give your business time to react to the information provided. If the experiment included calendar data, those events are displayed on this chart, providing insight into the effects of those events. Note that series-based experiments are sometimes compute-on-demand, depending on projected space and memory requirements.
