Paul Evans Founder and Advisor 

 

Dr. Paul L. Evans is known professionally as a policy analyst, program evaluator, software developer and business executive who works on the emerging technology side of computing, consulting, advertising, and biotech. As a policy analyst, during the 1970’s his policy research for the State of South Carolina helped formulate operational definitions and guidelines for State compliance with Federal Education mandates, PL 94-142, and PL 93-380. His work was passed into law in seventeen states.

On completion of his doctorate (statistics, program evaluation-University of Georgia) he became a policy analyst and program evaluator at the National Science Foundation (NSF) in Washington, DC. There he conducted policy and data analysis for NSF resulting in a book on needs of pre-college science and mathematics education which was presented to the National Science Board for adoption by Congress.

Following NSF, Dr. Evans was an early member of IBM’s PC development team in Boca Raton, Florida, shipping the first Personal Computer on August 12, 1981. 

At IBM he became a principal architect in the establishment of multimedia as an industry. His first development project in multimedia was in 1982 where he used digitized speech to help build a computer-based reading program for kindergarten youngsters. Paul directed the National field research on the effectiveness of "Writing to Read" for IBM in conjunction with the Educational Testing Service in Princeton, N.J. The computer program was statistically validated to be highly effective in teaching pre-school children to read and write. 

Seeing the potential for emerging educational technology worldwide, IBM implemented a 10-million-dollar corporate responsibility campaign (aligned with the Sullivan Principles promoting corporate social responsibility) to teach school children to read and write in South Africa before the end of the apartheid era. Dr. Evans was subsequently asked to provide consulting services in South Africa, and other IBM interests in the United States, Europe, Asia, and the former Soviet Union.

In 1985 he helped convert IBM's videodisc training system into a multimedia program that could be used to teach illiterate adults to read and write. The program was used successfully to help sanitation workers and prison inmates learn to read and write. Driven by corporate interest in educational policy, Paul Evans represented IBM Educational Systems in Washington, D.C. with government agencies, legislative staff, and professional associations.  There he analyzed pending legislation regarding emerging technology and education and prepared congressional testimony for IBM Educational Systems presentations in congressional hearings.

In 1989, working with a group of Hollywood filmmakers, he created the celebrated "Ulysses" interactive multimedia program. Shortly thereafter, a multimedia division was launched in 1990 to take advantage of this new business opportunity. Between 1990 and 1992, Dr. Evans and his Knowledge Systems Development team produced a series of pioneering and award-winning IBM multimedia applications and demonstrated them at the 1991 keynote address to the International Multimedia Conference in Tokyo. 

During 1992 Paul was given the mission to build a startup company within IBM in Atlanta, Georgia, the Multimedia Publishing Studio, that would build, publish, and market interactive multimedia titles for the consumer marketplace. In May of 1992 Paul led The Multimedia Publishing Studio into the consumer CD ROM titles business. A Sony Corporation joint venture resulted in multiple CD Rom titles for Sony's CD ROM XA player, the world's first multimedia hand held player. He also signed strategic partnerships with diverse content development companies including McGraw-Hill, Twentieth Century Fox, Turner, Warner Brothers, the Louvre, the British Museum, “Star Wars” Entertainment, The Biosphere, and IBM-Japan. In 1992 and 1993 Dr. Evans gave pioneering multimedia demonstrations and presentations of the Studio's emerging technology at TED 3, in Monterey, California and TED 4, in Kobe, Japan.

In 1994 Paul launched a consulting venture under contract with IBM Fireworks Partners Ventures to serve as a base for leveraging his key domestic and international contacts in entertainment and multimedia. In 1995 Electronic Data Systems (EDS, now Hewlett Packard ) acquired Evans' venture and launched EDS Management Consulting Services in Washington, DC, with Evans in an executive leadership role in the new company. In 1997 EDS acquired AT Kearney Management Consulting where Paul Evans became responsible for technology thought leadership for the firm and management of European and Domestic technology clients. Paul wrote and presented worldwide for Kearney:
