What are the key issues and processes that govern and enable any startup, and in particular have guided the integration of two very different products and their divergent application of technology?
The discussion will include:
Jeff’s startups delivered software and services to customers like Sun Microsystems, Xerox, American Airlines, United Parcel Service, MCI, Fujitsu, Blue Cross of PA, Baxter Healthcare, NYNEX, Ecolab, Time-Warner, HCA, and Canada Trust. At IBM he led the team delivering IBM’s first commercial version of WebSphere, which has emerged as the industry standard middleware web technology. Also at IBM, he drove the adoption of Java as a replacement for proprietary IBM languages and tools.
In the 1980s Jeff was on the Computer Science faculty at the University of Pittsburgh and led the Intelligent Tutoring Systems group at the Learning Research and Development Center. Even as an academic, he was focused on the delivery of real-world, practical systems: his software was used, for example, to train air force recruits in basic electronics.
Jeff received his doctorate, specializing in Artificial Intelligence, at the Computer and Information Science department of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 1985
