The company aims to bring predictive analytics technology within reach of every information worker. My past professional incarnation taught me that it may be quite a challenge to make statistics and data mining appealing and intuitive. It also taught me that this is exactly what many users actually expect from an advanced analytics solution, so I jumped at this challenge. (By the way, if you find this kind of problems interesting and appealing then check out our job posting at stackoverflow).
The fact that Jamie MacLennan is the CTO of this company also helped. I worked for quite a few years with Jamie on Microsoft’s SQL Server Data Mining and I am really looking forward to building other cool products.
So – until Predixion has a product I will keep posting about SQL Server Data Mining but also about my trip in the startup world. Meanwhile, if you use SQL Server Data Mining, take this survey and win a copy of Jamie and Bogdan’s book!
