The Analytics Professionals group was created to provide a forum for those in Boston to share tips, tricks and knowledge about using an analytic platform such as ParAccel to drive business value. With the variety and volume of data available these days from a number of sources (RDBMS, web logs, sensor data, social media, etc.) we're interested in discussing how you begin to make sense of all this data and derive real business value from it.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
