Open Data Group provides products so that companies can reduce the time required to deploy analytic models into enterprise IT environments and better manage the entire life cycle of analytic models.
I founded Open Data Group in 2002 and was its Managing Partner until 2015. During this period, Open Data provided consulting services so that companies could develop and deploy predictive models over big data. Open Data also developed open source software to make it easier to deploy predictive models, such as Augustus. Open Data was also active in the development of open standards for deploying analytics, including the Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML) and the Portable Format for Analytics (PFA), the two leading standards for analytic and machine learning models.
In 2016, Open Data pivoted and began to sell analytic engines designed so that companies could more easily and rapidly deploy analytic modles and scale up and monitor deployed models using enterprise services. At this time, I moved to the position of Chief Data Scienist.
