Brian Clark, Founder and CEO of Factor5, has joined the BIZDEVOPS Blog on DEVOPSdigest.

Clark is an entrepreneurial leader with more than 26 years of international experience in higher education, financial services, e-commerce and defense. He is a strategic thought leader with a proven track record for conceptualizing, delivering and transforming business and IT growth strategies, new business models and end-to-end operations through the introduction of digital solutions and technology platforms.

As the Factor5 CEO, Clark combines a "strategy first" approach to transformation with expertise in executive relationship building, product design and solution delivery to lead the Factor5 executive team and establish overall company direction. He uses these same strengths to guide clients in designing, planning and delivering against the business outcomes established for their own transformation projects. He also sets overall product and architecture direction and oversees product definition, development, management and delivery.

Based in Australia, Factor5 is modernizing the way universities manage curriculum through our highly configurable cloud-based curriculum lifecycle management solution, CourseLoop.

CourseLoop provides flexible workflow management and a single “source of truth” for university curriculum information management — eliminating reliance on paper forms, spreadsheets and email. By automating manual processes, universities improve time-to-market for new offerings, reduce the administrative burden on students and staff and increase curriculum design quality. CourseLoop allows academics to collaboratively design curriculum in an integrated environment.
