On Friday, February 2 the Computer Science Department will host its first colloquium of the Spring 2018 semester. Mr. Marc Wintjen from Bloomberg LP will give a talk entitled “Data Modeling and Visualization“. An abstract of his talk can be found below.
Please join CS faculty and students in Education 115 from 12:30 – 1:30 PM for this talk.
The true business value from big data comes from understanding how to answer questions before they’re delivered. Once the data is accessible, what techniques are used to visualize data to help tell a story? This talk will discuss the process used to gather requirements, the methods used to define how to structure data, and the best practices used to create a UI (User Interface) so business users can make data-driven decisions.
Marc Wintjen is a big data architect and data visualization evangelist in the Engineering Business Intelligence team at Bloomberg, LP in Princeton, NJ. He has over 18 years of IT experience in various roles, including project management, Business Intelligence consulting and delivery management in the financial services, pharma and banking industries.
