Leadership Team

John Cole
John Cole, Client Relations and Functional Design
John, has over 40 years of computer experience. John studied Applied Mathematics at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. At that time, applied mathematics was the closest to the current area of Computer Science studies. John has seen and participated in the technology revolution. When he first began his career, mainframes and terminals were few and far between as cost was prohibiting for most corporations. John has kept up with the numerous iterations in new technologies adapting from the key programmer in C-DAT when COBOL was the language of choice to becoming the key analyst in all new systems development projects. His wisdom, experience, and guidance still drive C-DAT today.
