Tim Wilson Takes It To 100!

By Michael Helbling, Director of Analytics | Jan 11, 2018

We are excited to let the world know that Tim Wilson has joined Search Discovery. Awesomely, he is also Search Discovery’s 100th employee, thus his appointment creates a special marker for our company.

Tim Wil­son is an accom­plished and well known dig­i­tal ana­lyt­ics vet­er­an.  In his 15+ year career in data and ana­lyt­ics, he has helped many com­pa­nies define their approach to ana­lyt­ics and analy­sis. Fur­ther­more, he’s helped these com­pa­nies fig­ure out what to do once they find use­ful infor­ma­tion in their data. He is a com­pelling speak­er, pro­lif­ic writer, and in the past 2 years has he has bridged the divide between “data sci­ence” the buzz­word and data sci­ence the busi­ness trans­form­ing activ­i­ty. He also has co-host­ed the Dig­i­tal Ana­lyt­ics Pow­er Hour pod­cast with me for the last three years.

Just this week, Intel CEO, Bri­an Krzanich deliv­ered his keynote at CES and pre­dict­ed the fol­low­ing: by 2020 every per­son will pro­duce 1.5GB of data each day; every autonomous vehi­cle will pro­duce 4TB of data per day, and a small con­nect­ed fac­to­ry will gen­er­ate 1 petabyte of data each day.   Those of us in mar­ket­ing, sales, or oper­a­tions func­tions know the strug­gles asso­ci­at­ed with large data sets already, albeit on a small­er scale. We have seem­ing­ly end­less amounts of data. Putting that data in the right place, the prop­er for­mat, with the cor­rect under­stand­ing, and final­ly using that data to make bet­ter deci­sions is still a wide-open fron­tier.

Our mis­sion at Search Dis­cov­ery is to help orga­ni­za­tions use data to make bet­ter deci­sions. We do this by using tech­nol­o­gy. We work with both exist­ing tools and we build tools to meet the demands of the mar­ket. We do this by lever­ag­ing proven analy­sis method­olo­gies and prac­ti­cal data sci­ence meth­ods to inte­grate, explore, seg­ment, and deliv­er insight. Through our devel­op­ment of new solu­tions and thought lead­er­ship we help our clients get real val­ue from their ana­lyt­ics invest­ments, and gain a deep­er under­stand­ing of their cus­tomers’ jour­ney.

Hit­ting 100 employ­ees is a cool data point. Tim Wil­son being that 100th employ­ee rep­re­sents an impor­tant mile­stone in the growth and trans­for­ma­tion of Search Discovery’s busi­ness to help our clients cap­i­tal­ize on the oppor­tu­ni­ties in front of them.
