I'm the V.P. of Direct Marketing Modeling for Washington Mutual in Seattle, WA.
I started analytics work with a M.S. in Statistics in 1995 working for Medicare on fraud and abuse issues. I spent the rest of the 90's working for a bleeding-edge data mining company called NeoVista Software that was bought by Accrue Software. I've also worked in telecom, healthcare, and financial modeling.
I am looking for analytical tasks that are compute intensive and that would be best run as part of an EDA (Event Driven Architecture), that is, completely automated. In your line of work, have you come across such applications?
