Oleg is a software engineer and architect in the New York City area specializing in Big Data, high-performance computing, and cloud PaaS architectures. He is also a writer and blogger on the topics of technology, cloud computing, and software engineering. Oleg has two decades of experience developing and architecting large scale data processing systems in R&D, startup, wholesale and distribution, Wall St., and financial data services industries. He is currently the Chief Architect at ADP Innovation Lab in Roseland, NJ.
In 1997 Oleg predicted the rise of open-source technology and founded Clarkson University Linux Users Group. This group was influential in bringing awareness of open-source to Clarkson, and later morphed into what is now a dedicated lab and curriculum called Clarkson Open Source Institute. While at Clarkson, Oleg advocated on behalf of open-source and Linux community and helped with construction of Clarkson’s first open-source high-performance computing cluster called “The North Country.” As part of that student project he had to meet with IBM’s Senior VP of Research which may have contributed to IBM’s eventual adoption of Linux.
While at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in 1999-2000 Oleg co-authored a paper on federated information systems that was presented at Engineering of Federated Information Systems (EFIS) conference in 2000. This R&D project involved building a proof-of-concept federated IS that integrated structured (SQL) and unstructured (multi-media) data under a single set of API and user interfaces.
From 2001 to 2003 Oleg worked as a data integration consultant at a major investment bank in NYC (see Oleg’s LinkedIn Profile for more details) on a web portal for private banking. This project involved aggregation of secure financial data from multiple legacy databases and presenting it in a customizable web portal.
In 2004, while working at a startup called ConfigureCode, Oleg contributed to two patent applications involving construction and semantic validation of mixed-schema XML documents. This technology was utilized in a Data Capture and Tracking System for Human Resources data integration.
From 2005 to 2011 Oleg worked at a Wall St. company (see Oleg’s LinkedIn Profile for more details) where he was instrumental in improving data quality, reducing trading errors, implementing analytics and reporting within the context of an equities order management system. The system was a 24/7 high performance computing platform that processed billions of dollars worth of trade executions daily.
From fall of 2011 to end of 2016, Oleg worked at Liquid Analytics as Cloud Platform Architect, where he was a thought and technology leader in the implemention of a cloud-based PaaS for mobile Business Intelligence.
Presently, Oleg works at ADP Innovation Lab as Chief Architect. On his spare time, Oleg is a big fan of Peloton bike which he uses to train for his cycling activities and stay healthy. Oleg is also a quantified self fanatic.
