About John

John Pattison

John Pattison is a Principal Consultant with Info et Cetera Consulting.

My expertise is providing businesses with technology leadership, trusted business advice, and custom software solutions. I have a passion for leveraging technology as an enabler for companies to achieve their business objectives. I believe that companies can use technology to become increasingly agile in complex markets, unleashing the potential for innovation that leads to growth.

Throughout my career, my clients and colleagues have been able to rely on my ability to stay at the leading edge of technology innovation and help them compete with the fastest companies out there. In 2001, I graduated with High Distinction from Worcester Polytechnic Institute with a Bachelor of Science degree in Management Information Systems, achieving a 4.0 GPA. I have pursued ongoing professional education in Microsoft’s emerging software development technologies. I was one of the first 5,000 people in the world to achieve the MCAD certification, an Early Achiever of the MCSD certification, and achieved the new MCTS certifications for .NET only three months after product release.

More than a technologist, I am attuned to the strategic objectives of small companies with unique business models operating within a niche market. I serve as a business partner with client executives. Because I am extremely flexible and knowledgeable in the latest technologies, I enable clients to level the playing field in markets dominated by larger businesses.

Clients and colleagues describe me as intelligent, confident, experienced, creative, and resourceful. They find me able to listen, assess, and make creative recommendations that fully respond to their business and technology requirements.

Core areas of expertise include:

  • Technology leadership
  • Business process modeling
  • System architecture design
  • Web application design and development
  • Database administration
  • IT support and administration

My broad and deep systems development experience includes: e-Commerce, end-to-end e-Business, Sales, ERP, Inventory management, Accounting, Manufacturing / Shop Floor Integration, Wireless applications, Warehouse control, Business collaboration, and ISO 9001 training.
