A Technology Approach to Improving Outcomes

Executive Bios

Greg Povolny

Founder and CEO

Greg has enjoyed an extensive data systems background originating with broad responsibilities during an eleven year employment with IBM including product knowledge, systems architecture, software development and IBM acquisition efforts.

During this period, Greg was responsible for submitting several patent requests, and as a result has been granted patents and patent claims in his name along with several key developers (Publication number WO2000069141 A3). The granted patents are based on Greg’s innovations in effective and asynchronous data movement over LAN s, WAN s, VSAT, telephony and the Internet.

Greg also has a unique background in online security systems for network, intrusion detection and authentication and has participated in key government task groups addressing these issues including high priority meetings conducted at the White House.

In 2004, Greg founded and self-funded Mindshare Consulting Group, LLC d/b/a Mindshare Technology. With Greg’s background and experience leading up to and through the dot com era, Greg’s vision for Mindshare was to create value by extracting the intelligence that exists within the data; beyond data management and data integration; beyond business process integration and automation. Greg’s target is, and has been, the very knowledge that is contained inside the data, inside the transaction and inside the process. Mindshare’s software is maintained as a hosted and managed service for interoperability and data analytics, including Data Science, Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics.

Mindshare has invested a decade in the development of its proprietary data intelligence offerings. Greg’s design for Mindshare’s data analytics operates by capturing trends and extrapolating patterns to produce predictive models that span the boundaries of single systems, different departments or multiple organizations and agencies. More importantly, the Predictive Analytics can be used for daily use where the models will process real-time data feeds, allowing stakeholders to visualize the impact of their actions over time. Greg’s industry focus has been and continues to be laser focused for the benefit of human services. Greg believes that the solutions developed under his oversight can help maintain social equity and provide long term benefit for children, families and communities.
