The core Decisions technical team has been working together for over ten years. During that time, we have been involved in a number of projects and successful ventures in diverse vertical industries, including:
In addition to being the founder of Decisions and other prior workflow ventures, Carl has been an innovator in object oriented programming for business since the 90′s.
Rumor has it he was raised by marketeers.
Prior to starting Decisions in 2009, Carl began in the mid 90′s as an innovator in object oriented programming for business. He started his first technology company in 1998 (oop.com) which developed a graphical configuration technology and rules engine. The company was sold to NetDecisions, a global technology company and private equity fund in 2001. As the CTO over technology ventures at NetDecisions, Carl also organized and created Fluency, a voice recognition technology based on the oop.com platform.
In 2003, recognizing the potential of workflow in conjunction with other configuration technologies, Carl formed Transparent Logic. Using a .net based platform, Transparent Logic delivered a fully graphical platform for creating workflows, rules and form building suite.
Transparent Logic was sold to Altiris/Symantec in January 2008. At Symantec, Carl was the Senior Director in charge of R&D for the workflow team. During his time at Symantec, he created the next generation Symantec Service Desk, based on the workflow technology.
Duane has an extensive background in System and IT management.
If you are wondering what he looks like, find the guy with the highest cell phone bill in the room.
Prior to joining Decisions.com in September 2010, Duane was a Senior Director of Product Management at Symantec, responsible for driving product strategy & vision for the Symantec Protection Center and Management Platform. Duane joined Symantec in 2007 through the Symantec acquisition of Altiris.
During his time at Symantec/Altiris, Duane both managed and brought to market a number of new products, including the Altiris Asset Management Suite. At Symantec, Duane spearheaded the acquisition of Workflow
technologies and was responsible for the delivery and adoption of the platform by other Symantec products and groups.
Before joining Altiris in 2001, Duane was responsible for the creation and development of an asset management system for personal property tracking and worked with many large corporations and state agencies. He also owned and operated a private IT services company targeted at delivering hardware and IT services to small businesses.
Heath Oderman has been leading development and delivery teams at companies both big and small.
Many don’t know that he was just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit (well, Virginia Beach).
After finishing a degree at the University of Virginia, Heath joined the DOD, working in the datacenter. During his time at the DOD, he was responsible for management and operations for highly secure, distributed servers. Following his time at the DOD, Heath joined OOP/NetDecisions and was a Senior Developer on the core technology team, developing the automation platform.
In 2000, Heath joined Fluency as the Product Architect. During his time at Fluency,
he led the technical team in architecting and delivering a next generation voice automation system.
Heath joined Transparent Logic in 2005 as the lead developer on the core workflow and automation technologies. As part of the Symantec acquisition of Transparent Logic, Heath was named as Director of Development on the workflow team. During his time at Symantec, Heath managed diverse development groups while delivering multiple feature rich and timely product releases.
Kevin has created and executed against growth strategies with many up and coming technology companies.
He likes to think that he can run faster than Duane, sail better than Carl, and maintains a larger vocabulary than Heath, but in reality he is just happy to be here.
A Crocker Innovation Fellow with a degree from Brigham Young University, Kevin has a rich history in identifying pains and applying technology solutions. He has worked with a number of startups and success stories in the software and hardware space from Silicon Valley, The Silicon Slopes, and abroad including: Square, ASUS, and Fundly along with consultative roles at other Utah technology startups.
He has been mentored by a number of highly successful individuals, including an
Entrepreneur in Residence at Disney, multiple venture capitalists, and thought leaders in the world of technology and entrepreneurship.
Kevin has a deep appreciation for entrepreneurship and a passion for internet technology. He is constantly seeking ways to contribute to the next generation of web enabled tools, a primary reason for his involvement with Decisions.
