Profound Logic Developer Liam Allan Named a 2017 IBM Champion

Profound Logic, an innovator in IBM i application modernization solutions, is proud to announce that Liam Allan, a member of our product development team, has been selected as a 2017 IBM Power Systems Champion.

"I'm thrilled to have this opportunity, and to join the ranks of IBM i leaders and educators who are recognized as IBM Champions," says Allan. "I look forward to sharing my knowledge with the IBM i development community, and evangelizing the Power Systems platform wherever I can."

Allan started working on the IBM i as a trainee RPG developer at the age of 17 years old, writing software to customer specifications. But he was also investing his own time in the platform, learning how to bridge the gap between IBM i and the world of open-source. At age 19, he was awarded the 2016 COMMON Student Innovation Award and became one of the youngest speakers to present sessions at the COMMON Annual Conference.

"Like so many others, I was very impressed by Liam when I met him at COMMON," explains Profound Logic CEO, Alex Roytman. "I was particularly interested in his passion for open-source development, and his natural talent for working with the IBM i platform. He is a great fit for our programming team, and his innovative thinking has taken our product development into new and exciting directions."

In addition to Liam Allan, Profound Logic has been a magnet for other highly talented IBM i Champions and experts, including Scott Klement, Brian May, and Ted Holt.

IBM Champion Program
The IBM Champion program recognizes innovative thought leaders in the technical community -- and rewards these contributors by amplifying their voice and increasing their sphere of influence. An IBM Champion is an IT professional, business leader, developer, or educator who influences and mentors others to help them make best use of IBM software, solutions, and services. IBM Champions are not employees of IBM. Visit the IBM Champions Program website for more information.
