Shan Gao Ma is a consultancy specializing in developing data collection systems intended for data-driven decision-making and data-rich services. SGM also provides experienced guidance on privacy ethics and regulations.
SGM works closely with The Common Data Project, a non-profit organization started by SGM principal Alex Selkirk to to create an "open data" sharing service to safely release sensitive data to the public.
SGM is a young company that is just beginning to define itself in the still new industry of "Big Data" analytics. We are a relatively rare hybrid of service-oriented consultancy and product development start-up. We work with major Internet brands as well as a non-profit dedicated to serving public interests.
It can be difficult to juggle such wildly different priorities. However, we believe it's a formula that gives us a unique perspective on the problems and challenges of collecting and making sense of data, problems that face both private and public sectors.
