Not Pictured

Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a Cofounder & Technical Advisor here at the BeyeNETWORK. Having covered the business intelligence and data warehousing industry for more than 15 years, I'm looking forward to a more interactive form of communication with all of you. Please share your comments and thoughts!



In the movie Minority Report Tom Cruise plays a detective who uses the forecasting ability of three psychics to determine when and where crimes will be committed thus almost eliminating crime.

It looks like the folks at SPSS thought it would be a great business intelligence application. They are launching a map-based application that forecasts the locations most likely to experience crime in a specified time period based on historic and current criminal statistics.

The data to analyze where the local law enforcement agency should best deploy officers is pulled from records management systems and database repositories.

I'll be interested to see what the reduction in crime is after the system has been in place for a year.
