Chael has spent his career working with data. From his first internship in college building an immunization database for a health care company’s employees, to working with cost accounting and forecasting systems at Meditech, and then deploying business intelligence solutions using MicroStrategy, he has spent two decades getting data into the hands of people who can use it.
The journey to Sentier Informatics included the founding of Atlantic Intelligence, a business intelligence consultancy. AI was subsequently sold to Claraview, Inc. in 2004. Chael continued on with Claraview as a consulting manager during the earnout and later left to found Solar Values. Under the banner of Solar Values, Chael partnered with various firms to deliver increasingly complex BI systems. Clients during this time included Nokia and eBay.
The promise of the newest big data technologies means that the storage and ingestion constraints of the past are gone, and Chael has embraced these changes. The expectations from business constituents for data availability and results has dropped from months to days to hours. Business analysts have taken ownership of the organizational data assets.
A firm believer that the language of business is data, and that it is incumbent upon executives and business analysts alike to embrace technology, Chael takes pride in being able to distill complex topics into a set of simplified solutions.
Chael holds a BA from the College of the Holy Cross, and an MBA from Boston College.
