Biography – Russell Beech, Founder of BI System Builders & Cornerstone Solution®
I architect data solutions and superintend the solutions that I architect. I build teams that are usually a mix of full-time employees and sub-contractors. I ensure mentoring and knowledge transfer. The emergence of big data has opened the door to a rise in interest in predictive analytics aka machine learning. For me the technology changes have provided the opportunity to architect data solutions which combine my enterprise data warehousing experience with data lake concepts and to apply my knowledge of statistics to that data to deliver predictive analytics. To that end I’m putting work into understanding how the evolving technologies hook in to each other. I have a focused interest in learning about big data technologies such as Hadoop, Hive, GCP BigQuery and machine learning and their integration/virtualization with the enterprise data warehouse.
