I am looking to chat with MULTIPLE people regarding business intelligence, predictive analytics, and machine learning. I want help in choosing the best path for my needs and this job is a 15-60 minute discussion in order for you to fully understand my needs and advise on the best path forward. I will speak to at least 3-5 freelancers and at the end, I will proceed with the best option I hear. You don't have to be the freelancer who gets me there as I don't want to eliminate good advice just because a freelancer might not have the time for another project. I'm simply looking to chat and you should submit an hourly rate for a potential preliminary discussion. In addition, please specify your hourly rate for 75 hours of work moving forward (10-20) hours a week to start and then as fast as you want until the tasks are complete. There isn't a guarantee that I will choose you because I choose you for this preliminary discussion, but I do want to know if you are just available for the discussion or interested in more work and if so, what the hourly rate would be for 75 hours for the first 4-6 weeks.
I have a degree in business and computer science and have experience with reporting and big data, but I'm nowhere near the level I need to be. However, I am familiar with many of the technologies and you speak to me in geek. I don't need you to dumb down the technical!
Here are the primary goals I'm looking to accomplish.
1) I have a lot of business data that I want to better understand. Currently, the reporting is typical for someone with big data. Sales reports show the best sellers, More sales reports show the category of products purchased, how things compare year over year, and how sales vary by geographic location. Purchasing reports show out of stock items that need to be purchased, etc etc. The data comes from a retail store chain, so the reporting I am after are any business intelligence that can be used to make better decisions. I want to better understand this data and enhance the reporting. I'd like to discuss the possibility of using google correlate, google trends, or any predictive models that help me better understand external factors that I have never seen that makes better sense of the data.
2) The 2nd set of data is to better help a client understand financial stock data in order to better invest money. There are already many tools out there that provide insight, but the client wants a specific set of stock data analyzed to better understand how these stocks are directly or inversely related. Any insight that can be used, whether it be predictive reporting, historical pattern searching, or machine learning. I'm not familiar with the best route.
Basically, I'm looking to utilize the latest technologies in order to convert my basic reporting to some serious business intelligence.
I encourage everyone to apply, including entry level with little experience. If there is something you cannot do, we can fill the gap with another freelancer. The most important thing here is the guidance as opposed to setting everything up.
