Paul Hansford Selected as Expert for Big Data Panel in Boston

Our own Paul Hansford was nominated by a professor at Sinclair Community College for a Big Data Career panel in Boston.  Paul will represent Simplesoft Solutions as an SME (Subject Matter Expert) to work with Oceans of Data Institute (ODI) of the Education Development Center, Inc.(EDC). Paul along with other panelists will help build an occupational profile of the Middle Skilled Big Data Specialist. Paul will travel to Boston April 14th-16th to share his twenty years of industry knowledge in the panel discussions.

Paul will be joined by colleagues from the following schools: Bunker Hill Community College (MA), Normandale Community College (MN), Johnson County Community College (KS) and Sinclair Community College (OH). The other panels will help define big data careers and the qualifications needed per career such as certifications and degrees. The colleges can then determine the appropriate fit based on their regional employment needs.  This work will allow the colleges to develop curriculum for their schools to match the career profiles developed. To read more about this project you can visit the ODI website.

Paul reflected on this upcoming event, “It is very exciting to be involved in a project where my profession as a Senior¬†Business Technology¬†Consultant and my love for teaching collide. I have provided consulting expertise to customers both to improve their data quality and¬†share the¬†skills into those roles¬†defined as Data Stewards and business administration. A project of this nature has tremendous value to our clients as they begin to hire data specialists trained through the college structure in the future.”¬† We are looking forward to hearing the results of the conference and how the results¬†will benefit our customers and our region through Sinclair Community College.
