Gary received his BS in Electrical Engineering from Florida Institute of Technology and MA in Organization Management and Development from Fielding Graduate University. Gary has over 30 years experience in the Information Technology and business consulting fields and is a member of the IEEE. He has been VP of Technology for a business products manufacturer and direct marketer and Director of Consulting and Custom Programming across the Americas for a logistics software company. His experience covers both enterprise systems and real-time data acquisition and storage.
Gary finds OSIsoft PI fascinating, as it provides superior operational data to that which he was able to access through enterprise systems. Gary has spent extensive time helping clients access PI data through SharePoint. He currently spends much of his time helping clients develop management reports from PI data, using both OSIsoft tools and MS-SQL. Though far from being an expert, he is beginning to plunge into the visualization worlds made possible through Angular.
Even before Microsoft introduced Windows, Gary helped several clients integrate personal computers into mission critical business applications, thus transforming their business operations. He was an early adopter of client-server relational database technology, allowing his corporation to quickly mine mainframe datastores to develop new business intelligence and efficiently store complex graphics.
Gary has spent most of his professional career in highly-collaborative large-scale environments, dependent upon the work product of dozens or even hundreds of contracting firms and stakeholders.
