    Steven Tye has been the Owner, Director, and Solutions Consultant at Tyeware for the past 14 years and counting. He has been involved in smart metering projects since 2011 and has experience working with over 50 water utilities on smart metering pilots and rollouts.

MiWater processes, interprets and integrates data received from Automated Meter Infrastructure (AMI) to give utilities control and oversight over their water infrastructure, from the largest networks down to individual services. MiWater has assisted in identifying leaks totaling six billion litres of water, in turn, saving residents of the Mackay region hundreds of dollars every year. In addition, MiWater assisted in regulating water consumption among the town’s population, allowing the Mackay Regional Council to reach its goal of reducing annual water consumption by 10%.

    Customer Experience and Telemex
    More recently, Tyeware has developed "Telemex", an industry-first integrated CRM, demand management and customer portal for water irrigation schemes. It includes the full management of water allocations, titles, transfers and changeovers, as well as meter management, scheme management and automated notifications. At the heart of Telemex is a customer portal used by water customers to lodge, manage and visualise the impact of water orders. Telemex builds on Tyeware's expertise and innovation across the Australian water industry to cultivate water sustainability through customer-centric solutions.

    At Envato, Sigal took part in structuring the financial department to integrate with other departments, merging data, finance and the diversity of views from around the table to ensure decisions are made well. As the CFO, Sigal’s role was to shine a light on points not considered by marketing and product.

    E81 - Max Métral - How Data Drives Racing - The Data Science Behind the Sports Industry

    With over half a billion fans following its events worldwide, Formula 1 is the greatest racing spectacle in the world. But very few of us know about Formula 1 as a corporate entity. What makes F1 such a highly successful organisation with raving fans?

    Max Métral, the Senior Analytics Manager at Formula 1®, is here to give us an insider view into the inner workings of data and analytics in the corporate sports entertainment media landscape.

    At F1, Max is currently involved in leading the business analytics department, which works to maximize commercial opportunities of both B2B and B2C ventures of F1 by optimising decision making using data analytics. Max uses data to deepen the customers/consumers/fans knowledge and make better data-informed decisions.

    Before becoming the Senior Analytics Manager, Max was the Insight Manager. As the Insights Manager, he developed the organisation’s first-ever fan data analytics strategy. He also built up the F1 data team from scratch.

    Max also enjoys teaching and sharing his real-life experience as a visiting lecturer at various universities across London, Paris, and Brussels.

    Previously, Max has worked as a data and insights analyst at City Football Group, Accenture Uk, and Adidas.

    Academically, Max studied at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill - Kenan-Flagler Business School and has a Master of Science in Management (MSc) degree from ESSEC Business School in France.

    He frequently speaks at reputed industry events involving data analytics, sports business analytics, and sports marketing.

    In this exclusive episode, Max shares how data and analytics are used in the landscape of sports media and sports analytics.


    The interview kicks off with Max sharing his passion and experience in teaching and writing, when he is not working. Not only does he find joy from these activities, but equally, he uses the opportunity to sharpen his knowledge too.
    Max provides a lot of business context for Formula 1 and how it’s evolving from B2B to B2C and the DTC model.
    How data analytics are becoming ever more critical in their B2B business because broadcasters and promoters are asking more questions than ever before to justify the ROI.
    How Max and his team had to create the fans database from scratch when he first started the job at Formula One.
    How, eventually, the fans database has allowed Formula One to start building its B2C business.
    Why data analytics is becoming more critical for Above the Line Marketing.
    Why we can’t blindly trust the data and spend all our marketing budget for Below the Line Marketing.
    How to build a customer database with a global perspective and some of the challenges it would come with.
    How to create a new B2C market if you’re traditionally a B2B business and why data plays such an important role to make both of them complement each other.

    If you are Chief Marketing Officer in a large corporation or work in the media industry, listening to this episode is highly recommended.

    E80 - Albert Ishak - Harmonising the Legacy Systems in Aviation Industry through Finance Automation

    Aviation is an industry that naturally has a significant existence of legacy systems within financial and IT operations. How to harmonise these systems and what are the benefits of the harmonisation?

    Above all, how can you synchronize the legacy systems existing in your industry and organisation?

    To discuss all this and much more, we have Albert Ishak, the CFO of Airbus, Indonesia, for this exclusive episode on The Analytics Show. Airbus is a global pioneer in the aerospace industry, operating in the commercial aircraft, helicopters, defence, and space sectors. The company designs, manufactures, and delivers aerospace products, services, and solutions to customers worldwide. In 2020, it generated revenues of €49.9 billion and employed a workforce of around 130,000.

    Albert specialises in analysis, forecasting, financial modelling, statistics, data science, credit analysis, and research. He is a CFO with experience in Aviation, Aerospace, Defence, Agriculture, Hospitality, and Gaming industries.

    Before joining Airbus, Albert was a pivotal force in establishing Neorizon, a joint venture between Airbus and LM Industries. Neorizon develops physical products as fast and as flexible as software. The company specialises in rapid product innovation and development. He was the first CFO and Co-Managing Director there.

    Academically, Albert graduated from IE Business School’s International MBA in 2017. He also received another MBA in Behavioral Sciences of Management from Yale School of Management.

    In this episode, the exciting discussion takes form through the following routes:


    Albert shares about his academic background and what advice he would give to young data scientists who are interested in progressing their careers to be a CFO.
    His experience in starting Neorizon, and how that experience cemented his professional career at Airbus.
    The use of data and analytics at Airbus and a few examples of how data science and emerging technologies are used at Airbus around the world.
    Some of the use cases are -- Airbus Skyways and Digital Twin technology, Route optimisation for commercial aircraft, and predictive maintenance to prolong the asset lifetime value.
    The use of data analytics in Albert’s main area of expertise - finance.
    He shares their work in building the financial model to better understand the company cash flow, budgeting, and costing.
    Data analytics combined with finance automation not only allow him and his team to better predict the financial health of Airbus Indonesia, but it also allows them better manage finance when accessing the money market.
    Albert shares his views on harmonising the legacy systems as well as the long term vision that Airbus and Global CFO have for the future.

    If you are a CFO operating at a well-established company that comes with legacy systems, I would highly recommend you listen to this episode to find out how Albert is improving the financial health at Airbus Indonesia through finance automation and harmonising the legacy systems.
