3 Steps to Becoming an Analytics-Driven Organiza..

Morten Middelfart

Dr. Morten Middelfart

Founder and Chairman of Social Quant

I've been working professionally in the software industry since I was 14 years old, and my passion for computers has never stopped growing. Today, I'm deeply involved in educational activities that advocate my research within business intelligence and analytics.


By the time I was 25, I had established Morton Systems, my first business intelligence and analytics company. 

Today, I'm deeply involved in educational activities that advocate my research within business intelligence and analytics. Through my research, I've developed new ways for businesses to react intelligently and efficiently to real-world challenges, enabling them to succeed and even thrive despite occasional adversity. I'm fascinated by human-computer synergy and cooperation as a fundamental shift for decision-makers. When technology continues to get faster, more efficient, and smaller, I see an increasing opportunity for computers to handle some of the more menial and repetitive tasks in an extended decision-making process.

I'm also focused on the potential "loss of control" that managers face when the data sources needed for swift decision-making are external. This research led to the development of TARGIT's self-service analytics and data-integration initiative, TARGIT Xbone during my time as TARGIT CTO. I am currently an entrepreneur in the thriving big data scene.

I have earned two PhDs from Rushmore University (U.S.) and Aalborg University (Denmark). And I currently hold seven U.S. patents and 25 worldwide. You can learn more about my completed and ongoing research, patents, and upcoming presentations on my research page.

In my spare time, I'm an avid skydiving instructor and enthusiast, with more than 2,000 airplane jumps and several BASE jumps to my name.
