Quick post because I'm swamped with work...
Last year, at the Asia Teradata User Group in Beijing, I presented some generic data mining that was being performed at Optus (mostly simple churn analysis and behavioural segmentation). I also had a few meetings with the analysts from some China telco's about how relatively simple data analysis can scale up to many millions of customers and billions of rows of data.
This year I'll be presenting at the US Teradata User Conference some of the more advanced analysis that I've recently done, notably surrounding social network analysis in the mobile customer base on large amounts of data (several billions of rows). I'm hoping to be able to quote some actual business outcomes and put up some $ numbers.
The US 2009 Teradata User Group Conference & Expo, October 18–22, 2009, at the Gaylord National Resort.
I'll be presenting on Wednesday 21st October 2009 at Maryland D on the Business Track. Judging from the large number of presentations I guessing it will a much smaller and personal room than the 1000+ conference hall I was in last year in Beijing :)
Feel free to say hi and ask lots of questions if you see me there. I might have one free evening for a few beers if anyone wants.
