In 1998 Ronan Sorensen, the CEO of
Intellectmap, first articulated a people-oriented software vision in his book
"Inside Microsoft Windows NT Internet Development", published by Microsoft
Press. In 2002 he expanded on these ideas in the book "Applied.NET - Developing
People-Oriented Software Using C#" published by Addison-Wesley. Ronan founded
Intellectmap with the vision of creating enabling technologies for companies to
capture and disseminate intellectual reasoning. Prior to Intellectmap, Ronan
was a Technical Senior Strategist at Dell Inc., one of the most successful
companies in the world at leveraging the power of the Internet.
Earlier in his career Ronan was
instrumental in growing Plural Inc. into a $100 million revenue eBusiness
consulting and development company as National Director of Strategic
Technology. During his seven years tenure the company gained industry wide
recognition as a leading eBusiness firm with specialized industry focus areas
in financial services, telecommunications, healthcare, pharmaceutical, media,
travel and professional services.
