Alan is responsible for making sure all IS functions keep running smoothly at IHMC. That includes all Macintosh and Dell PCs and Sun workstations, our 100BaseT and wireless networks, our T3 internet connection (provided by WorldCom/uuNet), and our Nortel Merdian 1 Option 11c phone system. He is also responsible for maintaining and updating the e-mail and web servers.
After graduating from Pensacola
Christian College in December of 1987, Alan began work for PCC as
a Burroughs Linc programmer. Soon after that Alan spearheaded the implementation
of electronic publishing for A Beka
Book, a book publishing affiliate of PCC. At that time electronic
publishing, or desktop publishing, was on the bleeding edge of technology.
Alan also headed up the task force to replace the customer service /
warehouse / accounting system for A Beka Book. Alan worked closely with
the administration on the research, programming, and implementation
of many other projects for
the 11 years he was at PCC.
