PAW Recap: Privacy, Big Data, and Standing O
The StatSoft presentation, “Addressing Privacy Concerns: Critical Features for Predictive Analytics Platforms,” highlighted the role of model and data governance, a subject often neglected in predictive modeling discussions despite its importance as a driver of software requirements.
StatSoft’s VP of Analytic Solutions, Dr. Thomas Hill, prepared the content in light of recent media coverage of invasion-of-privacy concerns stemming from exhaustive and effective data mining. Taking the stance that enterprise analytics platforms must support features allowing the implementation of security policies and rules, Hill provided an overview of STATISTICA Decisioning Platform®’s key features that have made it a favorite in highly regulated industries.
Senior Statistician Dr. Gary Miner took part in the invitation-only “Big Data Expert Panel,” moderated by PAW Founder Eric Siegel. And Carleton Jones, StatSoft’s Director of Financial Services, was a big hit with the audience and received an unprecedented standing ovation after his brief presentation.
