Doug Wallace, 32, is seizing opportunities to forge
both political and entrepreneurial careers. First, because of a
requirement by the Health Care Finance Administration and New Jersey’s
laxness in implementing it, he is starting Seashore Systems, a
to the Trenton Business and Technology Center. Second, he is running
for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in the 143rd district
(along Route 202 in and around Doylestown). "I’ve got a full plate
and I’m real excited for it," says Wallace.
The company sells a program that tracks minimum data set reports for
nursing homes required by the Health Care Finance Administration.
The program compiles the information and sends it electronically to
the state health care department, which then forwards the information
back to the HCFA. "Every state utilizes this eight-page
By now, 48 states in the country have mandated that the minimum data
set reports be posted online, with corresponding software programs.
The only two states left to mandate this are New Jersey and
New Jersey’s deadline is in June of this year.
Currently, Seashore is licensing the software from an Illinois-based
firm whose identity Wallace "is not at liberty to disclose."
Wallace, who lives in Doylestown, graduated with a political science
major from the University of Richmond in 1988. He worked on campaigns
for various Republican lawmakers, including Rodney Frelinghuysen,
the Congressman from New Jersey’s 12th district and Paul Trible, the
senator from Virginia who ran for governor in 1989.
From 1990 to 1996 Wallace worked for Eastman Kodak, based at 103
Center. After Kodak merged with Danka, he was transferred to Dallas,
Texas, and a firm that had a software division, QuickCare, that sold
an "equivalent" to the one he sells now. He left, he says,
because "it was a good opportunity to start a company in New

If you’re spending more than 40 percent of your IT
to maintain interfaces without a unified architecture, you’re probably
a target for Glotech Solutions, the "middleware" software
development firm that recently took 650 square feet in Research Park.
"We try to integrate legacy, purchased, and custom applications
in a highly complex environment," says Jhedish Talreja, president.
Middleware, he explains, is considered a relatively new industry.
In the United States, Taneja estimates, there are maybe 10 or 12 major
companies that use middleware, "but many, many other companies
are talking about it," he adds. The software ranges in price from
$75,000 to $400,000.
Talreja has an MBA in MIS from St. Peter’s College (Class of 1992)
and has worked for AMIC Research, in Jersey City, and QAD, an
requirements planning software developer based in Santa Barbara. He
started Glotech in October, 1995, in Edison, and has 22 employees
total, with a larger office in Bombay. Six employees work in
Glotech has partnerships with QAD, SAP, & Oracle.

Because the Year 2000 problem is specific to the year
(and optionally the century) components of the date field, it is
to identify the format of each field (yymmdd, ddmmyy, ccyymmdd) and
Visionet’s software DataSearch/400 can detect date fields
of name, location, and format and accurately discovers virtually all
date fields in the database. The program makes its own database of
fields and marks each as: not a date, Year 2000-compliant date format,
non-compliant date format, and suspected date field. The firm’s
have been using this tool for two years as part of Millennium/400,
and it is scheduled to be available for sale as a stand-alone tool
by April 1.
Visionet Systems has Year 2000 contracts at 40 global organizations.
The five person United States headquarters office has expanded and
added 23 employees at Exit 8A for a total of 200 employees in six
