Education veteran joins TechnologyOne


Enterprise software provider, TechnologyOne, has brought in an education software industry veteran to head up its division servicing the higher education sector.

The company has appointed Dr Wayne Oswin, formerly of the Queensland University of Technology's (QUT), as its new solutions manager for higher education.

TechnologyOne executive chairman, Adrian Di Marco, said Dr Oswin would 'drive forward the development of the company's proven practice enterprise software solution' which he said was designed to specifically address the unique needs of the tertiary and vocational education sectors.

'Dr Oswin has more than 20 years' experience in the education software industry, 10 years of which were spent leading the development and deployment of a number of key web-based information management systems at QUT.' 

Dr Oswin was part of the management team responsible for launching and rolling out the QUTmulti-million dollar student management system, a program which TechnologyOne was also involved in and which Di Marco said resulted in 'improved quality and accessibility of the university's online administration services.'

Di Marco said TechnologyOne counts more than 50 education service providers as customers including leading public and private universities, TAFEs and Polytechnics, and Dr Oswin's previous experience and market knowledge made him an ideal choice to join the TechnologyOne solutions group.

'Wayne has a vast amount of experience building solutions to meet the unique requirements of the education industry. The appointment follows the establishment of a TechnologyOne Solutions Group in 2010, designed to support key sectors by offering best in class enterprise solutions for organisations across a range of industries.

'We have a team of specialist Solutions Managers for the Local Government, Health & Community Services, Higher Education, State, Federal and Central Government, Managed and Financial Services and Utilities sectors, to help customers solve more problems and meet their changing requirements,' Di Marco said.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
