Weekly Update June 19 – June 23

This was a busy one! So what have I been up to?

Working on agile business intelligence with both of my Jisc Analytics Labs teams, with a face to face meeting at Wolverhampton plus two online scrums. I also developed an Alteryx workflow for our friends over at HESA to help them join up older versions of the Estates Management Record (EMR) that should help institutions wanting to do some longer term trend analysis.

Meeting my partners and associates in Cetis LLP at our home base at Halton Mill. We had a great meeting, developing ideas for new service offerings in areas such as Student Journey Transformation, Digital Credentials, and Course Discovery, as well as developing our strategy for the coming year in existing areas such as Business Intelligence, Learning Analytics, Research Data ManagementData Wrangling and Technology Selection and Evaluation. Oh, and we may finally actually redo our website 🙂

Studying Machine Learning with a Coursera course from Stanford. Mostly I’ve been working on artificial neural networks for classification problems.

Writing bids for new work with OECD and with the European Space Agency.

Ich Lerne noch Deutsch mit Duolingo.

Growing things in the garden and greenhouse. Tomatoes developing nicely!

Watching Wallander and The Expanse on Netflix.


In case you don’t know me, I’m a consultant and partner in Cetis LLP, specialising in BI/analytics, open source software, and technology discovery and pre-procurement. Always interested in new clients, so feel free to get in touch.
