In a progression of roles, Barry started out as a System Engineer installing and configuring Oil&Gas systems, progressed into various management roles including managing System Engineering, QA/Test and Product Development before taking on the role of Director of R&D, then working in Enterprise Architecture as a Realtime Business Architect, working in Business Development and then switched over to the Electrical Utility market as Technical Director of Smart Grid Delivery and Director of Electric Solutions Architecture and then reverting back to Oil&Gas as a Senior Oil&Gas Solutions Architect.

As a Real-time Solutions Architect, Barry has architected dozens of Critical Infrastructure solutions for the Energy Industries (Electric Distribution, Oil & Gas transmission pipelines) – BC Hydro, Hydro One, Epcor, Exelon, Exel, Fortis, PG&E, Dominion, AGLR, Chevron, ExxonMobil, TransCanada, …, ensured compliance with appropriate cyber security standards: NERC/CIP, IEC 62443/ISA99 and provided a depth in defense approach to hardening solution architectures – Networking, Principal of least privilege, Center of Internet Security (CIS) Windows infrastructure hardening and security products integration.

 

We are really pleased to have Barry on board – we’ve really enjoyed working with Barry in the past – a highlight was working together on documenting the EPLMS Solution Architecture as well as AIT (the Automated Install Tool) at AVEVA.

Zebra has been in hibernation as the principals have been busy working at Telvent / Schneider Electric / AVEVA. We have led software development for Oil&Gas Applications for the market leading Pipeline Management System for Oil&Gas (AVEVA’s EPLMS applications based on OASyS), architected Solutions for projects on multiple continents, and presented at conferences from Baku in Azerbaijan to San Paulo in Brazil on subjects from Pipeline Management Systems to Analytics for Pipelines.

But now we’re getting back to providing solutions - our experience on various platforms on numerous projects have allowed us to gain experience in a wide range of technologies somewhat removed from the real-time/embedded arena - allowing us to thrive on problem resolution rather than software development per se.

Our aim is to provide the best solution using the appropriate technology for a problem, rather than the coolest or newest.

And we have some products that have to move from lab to market. Stay posted.
