I am a Professional Analyst with both strong academic and business experience. My main sphere of interests is Information Management for Predictive Analytics. I am interested how companies use their Information and Data in the most efficient and way. How should information be captured, stored, treated, used and communicated with as final goal efficient decision support.
Information Management for Predictive Analytics overlaps with different sub domains: Data Governance, Business Intelligence, Data Mining, and Statistical and Mathematical Modeling. I had the opportunity to apply these techniques in Banking, Marketing and Telco.
Recently I am implementing a data governance team for quantitative business solutions. This in terms of both IT, mathematical and project mode. My main focus is on how one should structure a quantitative decision support team within an operational business environment. This involves typically 3 phases:
The data gathering:
Master and meta data management,
statistical/ data mining models ,
The reporting of the results:
interfaces to put the model in production,
interpretation of results.
All of them have to align in order to have highest efficiency of your project. But also the project management of quantitative modeling projects is al challenging topic. Less is known about this topic since data mining projects typically live between IT and R&D.
My name is Mike Wallace and I live in Chicago, Illinois USA. I have visited your web site and find your background fascinating. Have your ever thought about applying your experience/model to creating a algorithmic trading product for futures and FX markets. My background is in futures & Fx trading and operations and would really like to start a conversation to see if you have any intrest of starting a joint venture. If it works the amount of money a person can make in the trading arena is mind blowing. Thanks and hope we can speak soon. Mike
