Mr. Harper is an extremely well-balanced hardware/software/networking specialist and MIS Manager. In spite of his many years in the business, he has never allowed his knowledge to become stagnant. He Has a knowledge base which encompasses the very latest in leading-edge technology. This is tempered by his years of practical experience which give him the foresight not to embrace the "bleeding edge of technology." His most recent experience has been in designing, engineering, procuring, and integrating networked/distributed systems for Business, U.S. and foreign governments, and civilian ADP facilities being "downsized" or "rightsized." He is equally at home in sizing and designing a state-of-the-art, fully-distributed, computer hardware suite; specifying and procuring systems software, high-end RDBMS systems, and off-the-shelf software packages; or specifying, procuring, and installing all kinds of Ethernet, FDDI, and other data communications (or teaching others to do this - correctly). He is not simply a "desktop engineer." Mr. Harper is the person who can make it all happen in a real environment. This includes identifying, fabricating, and installing special cables, assembling hardware from various "open systems" vendors, and programming and troubleshooting when the inevitable happens and it doesn't all work as advertised. In addition, Mr. Harper is also an accomplished programmer. His experience and knowledge span a vast area from "bit-fiddling,” and encompasses many of the most modern fourth-generation (4GL) packages. Mr. Harper's experience also spans the entire spectrum from mainframe computers, to the most modern PCs, RISC workstations, super-mini computer 2-level and 3-level distributed servers, and peer-to-peer networked stations. He is current with all versions of DOS, Windows, Windows NT 3.1, 3.5x, 4.0, 2000, XP, and 2003 Servers with Microsoft Back-Office, SQL Server, Exchange Mail, and OS/2. To top off all of his working-level knowledge, Mr. Harper is also unexcelled as a technical writer. He has performed R&D, worked as a Functional Software Analyst, QA/QC Specialist, CM Specialist, and Task/Team/Project Manager. Mr. Harper believes, and stays focused on, 5 premises for the future: (1) The future “mainframe” will be the network; (2) The desktop (for now) belongs to Microsoft Windows (with networking); (3) Desktop workstations will rapidly migrate to Microsoft Windows NT; (4) The workgroup and small enterprises belong to Microsoft Windows NT Server with Microsoft Back-Office; and (5) Large enterprise servers will be equally divided between UNIX and Microsoft Windows NT.
