Long Biography for Daniel Stanton

In his first computer job, back in 1991, Daniel Stanton worked for $100 a week answering phones for a former Wang Laboratories manager at a startup technology company. That job was supposed to help Daniel pay his way through college to become a Civil Engineer. Instead it launched him down a whole new path, and helped him build a professional career as an information technology integrator and an entrepreneur.

Today, Mr. Stanton holds degrees in engineering, education, business, and information technology. He has a B.S. in Workforce Education and Development from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, an M.S. in Technology for Education and Training from the University of South Dakota and, most recently, an M.B.A. from National American University. He is currently enrolled in the Logistics and Supply Chain Management program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Mr. Stanton has also earned a number of prestigious industry certifications. These include Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, Microsoft Certified Trainer, Microsoft Office Specialist Expert, Microsoft Office Specialist Master Instructor, and Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator. He has managed teams that worked on Internet technologies, database development, applications development, applications deployment, and network design.

From 1994 until 1999 he was a Yeoman in the U.S. Navy, and was in charge of many of the administrative functions of an F/A-18 squadron. While managing correspondence, personnel records, financial reports, operational reports, and classified materials during three deployments around the Mediterranean Sea and the Arabian Gulf, Petty Officer Stanton developed a keen perspective on many technological challenges that have become common issues for businesses, such as information security, portability, connectivity, and interoperability.

He has also, at various times, worked in research laboratories and studied engineering public policy. He spent the summer of 2001 in Washington, D.C. on an internship funded by the National Science Foundation to study the public policy issues surrounding the ambitious proposal to convert the Homestake Mine into an underground laboratory. From 2002 until 2003 he was the Information Technologies Division Manager for a global technical services firm that does research for many U.S. and foreign government agencies and corporations. He spent much of 2003 and 2004 as a laboratory assistant in the Friction Stir Welding Laboratory of the Advanced Materials Processing Center at the School of Mines. In 2005 he was hired by the State of South Dakota to help develop an index for High Performance Campuses. In 2006 he was invited to join the faculty of National American University's Graduate School of Business as an adjunct professor.

As a trainer, Daniel has had opportunities to work with all kinds of organizations to help them understand how to use technology to improve their workflow and expand their capabilities. A few of the organizations that he's done consulting and training for that you might recognize include: RESPEC Inc, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, Microsoft, Navajo Nation, IMC Global, Regal Computer, Hills Products Group, South Dakota School of Mines, and Rushmore Borglum Story Museum.

His current interests run in the direction of the impact that information technology has on business and society. He is writing a book with the working title of Era of Convergence. He speaks regularly to groups of all sizes about the evolution of information technology, how it is impacting global business, and how to use it effectively. And he works as a consultant, often managing technology deployments and company startups. He has his own company called “Real South Dakota,” and is starting a U.S. office for Denhi, a global technical services company.

Daniel and his wife Ruth have been married for almost four years, and they share their home with two dogs and a cat.

Quotes from Daniel Stanton

"Managers need to understand - and be able to explain - the analytical basis for the decisions they make."

"I genuinely believe that the greatest financial opportunities for many years to come will be presented to people who have a strategic perspective on technology and a global perspective on business. That does not mean that every manager needs to understand the intricacies of any one computer program; rather, it means that they need to be able to look at a new technology and recognize the impact that it can have on their business processes."

"The key to successful project management is to define both the beginning and the end, and then take the most direct path between them."

"It is safe to assume that all forecasts are wrong, but some are more wrong than others."

"You can't expect technology to fix a problem until you can explain it in terms that a child could understand."

"Knowledge enables us to build the bridge between our past and our future. Wisdom tells us how it should look."

Today, the great opportunities are presented to organizations with a global approach to business and a strategic view of technology.
