To enable the business staff of our customers to
clarify, agree and record the language of their business,
and use it to build a bridge between Business and IT
From the beginning of his career his vision and
contribution have been to ‘bridge work and systems with the language
of business’. His fresh
approach using business semantics1 in their business context2
for business analysis, requirements & semantic integration maximises
the involvement of business staff.
This results in the integration of the manual & automated
halves of business processes, and bridges the gap between the
people who run the business and those developing automated systems to
organisations with new development strategies, as well as improved
capabilities for existing strategies, throughout the development life
cycle. He brings a unique balance of practice, research, improvement
& teaching; business management & systems development; in both
start-ups & large organisations (including 10 years with IBM).
His work in the supply chain, both as a business manager and as
a systems consultant, together with his ability to define customer
needs and design product & service features to match them, puts
him at the centre of the customer-supplier eBusiness interface.
