Are there kinds of behavior (e.g., by customers or products or their own systems) that might be valuable to be able to predict? What are they? What data (either internal sources described in the materials or external data sources available for free or purchase) might help make these predictions?

Kinds of Behavior to Aid in Prediction
Marketing campaigns predict the way a certain trend looks like. Marketing campaign influences the way customers buy. In the case when a given product is marketed through many channels or at many times, customers may change their decision when it comes to buying.
