Schrader is also involved in a series of BSI (business scenario investigations) videos on YouTube which give CSI-like examples of how big data forensic insights can drive better corporate actions and reactions.

Topics in Schrader’s discussion will include Active Customer Management, or driving people into stores, given mobile location information, and Active Operations Management, the process of using mobile and geospatial information to optimize inventories, improve process instrumentation and asset utilization, among other topics.
