Name: Paul J. Boyes
Bio: I have over 20 years of experience in technology, with a diverse background in software development, information management, enterprise architecture, api development and standards development. The main thread is I like to be hands on and work up and down the technical and business stacks to see results. In management, enterprise architecture and software development roles, I have developed successful software products for a wide range of entities including Guidewire Consulting, the National Cancer Institute, Booz Allen Hamilton, GridNetworks, the U.S. Department of Defense, Audiobase, and Microsoft.
Reason: Standardization to web technologies opens software development to a wide audience allowing for common reusable work on multiple platforms and operating systems. We have seen web technologies enhance, expand and enable existing and new business models across a wide variety of industries. I firmly believe the same will be true for the automotive industry, and I wish to help advance the goals of the Automotive Business Group (http://www.w3.org/community/autowebplatform/automotive-and-web-platform-business-group-charter/).
