Donald Abbot

Chief Technology Officer

There is no technical problem that 'gets the better' of Donald. With his B.Sc (Hons) in Computer Science, he is an IBM mainframe software engineer and a pioneer in the transfer of software from one hardware platform to another. He assisted Software AG with the DB2 - NATURAL systems interface. He is proficient in communications software and a very competent technical systems specialist. This has enabled him to work in any operating system environment, understanding and implementing systems that most mere mortals would be too scared to implement. He has created products which Bateleur sell world-wide - most in the archiving world where he understands the archiving and retrieval of information. One of his most successful projects was to cut an archive process down from an estimated 522 days to 16 hours!
