business initiatives, including the expansion of the iMISiXtend Development
Partner Program, and new mergers & acquisitions.

includes progressively responsible leadership roles as a senior manager,
executive, and entrepreneur in the information technology marketplace.
He has also consulted for ASI over the last 8 years. Most recently,

development, integration, promotion, and selling of new iMIS add-on applications. Under this program, ASI
provides the tools and guidelines to help this community develop
software products for iMIS 15 and future
platforms that have the same structure, characteristics, behavior,
look-and-feel and integration level as ASI-created iMIS
"ASI is committed to finding new
and creative ways to assist iMIS users and
meet their diverse needs. We see formalizing and expanding the iXtend program as an important initiative to support
