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


says Wallace.

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

Glotech’s Middleware

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.

Visions of 2000

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

so on.

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

offices around the world. Arshad Masood, the CEO, had worked for IBM

for 10 years.

Future products include encrypted identity card security systems,

a multi-currency conversion toolset, and a multi-lingual instantaneous

translation system for alphabets and print drivers.
