What's new?

Back in the Saddle



No blog posts for 3 and half years.  Time to fix that!   πŸ”›


Today I embark on a new career at qlik.com focusing on search driven analytics. What's with that? I did some of the first commercial work in search driven BI 15 years ago.  Isn't this a step backward πŸ”?


Search Driven Analytics - Ready for Prime Time.


So much has happened in the Business Intelligence world. Innovators like Qlik and Tableau have brought BI and analytics to the more people than ever before. In the meantime, big data, Hadoop /Spark, NoSQL, Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence have become commonplace. Open Source has also moved to the forefront.  Facets, dimensions and clustering of terms is implemented in several world class open source packages.  

Search technology is finally positioned to leverage these advancements in ways that we never envisioned. Conveniently (for me at least), I have spent the last ten years researching and developing apps in all these areas. I am excited at the prospect and can't wait to share some new insights about the current state-of-the-art and where I think we can go.
