Blair Doneske, PhD
IBM - Advanced Analytics Software Division

Creating New Offerings through Analytics
Blair was formerly with CenterPoint Energy and headed up the Data Architecture projects included real time smart meter communications, monitoring and reporting and enablement of reporting and decision support on mobile devices.  At IBM, Blair specializes in data analytics. One of the greatest competitive differentiators any company can have is access to actionable information in an actionable time frame. The major obstacles to achieving this often include knowing which data points are important, collecting and merging data from a wide variety of sources, the cost to store and maintain all of this data, and then being able to present it to decision makers in an easy to consume and interactive manner.  Blair works with organizations to understand their core business processes, what data is available surrounding those processes, what the minimum components are to make improvements, and then how to store, analyze and deliver this information for decision support.
