Analyzing Geo-location Big Data to Provide Personalized Offers 

Doug Freud Biography
Doug has 25 years of experience implementing, selling, and marketing Advanced Analytics. With a traditional background in statistics, Doug joined SPSS after graduate school and discovered an appetite for data and text mining. Doug joined the SPSS Professional Services organization and realized that he liked not only the underlying analytics, but the challenges associated with changing business processes and working within the IT infrastructure. After leaving SPSS, Doug joined Oracle and led a professional services team that focused on integrating Data Mining into their BI and Marketing offerings.  Currently Doug is Technical Director at KXEN, An SAP Company, where he works with existing customers helping them build and operationalize predictive models.

Abstract:  Advanced Analytics in the Age of Big Data: Challenges & Opportunities

While using Advanced Analytics to solve business problems is not new, the onslaught of big data will change everything from the problems we are trying to solve to the algorithms we use. The challenges of managing big data are substantive and still in their infancy, and as this infrastructure matures the analytical techniques and processes will also need to evolve and scale. One new opportunity will revolve around personalization based on geo-location (location based analytics), and how organizations can use the mobile channel to provide real-time offers.
