Open Commons Consortium

I am a Director of the 501(c)(3) not for profit Open Commons Consortium (OCC). The OCC manages and operates data commons and cloud computing infrastructure to support scientific, medical, health care and environmental research. OCC members span the globe and include over 30 universities, companies, and government agencies.

Open Data Group

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. From 2016-2017, I was Open Data's Chief Data Scientist.
