256. Ron Rock – Microshare, Digitally Twinning People, Using Data to be Predictive and the Permanancy of Our New Normal


Leader @microshare.io. I am a big idea guy, and a ‘tinkerer’ by nature. I take pride in my ability to connect the dots before others even know there are dots to connect, and I thrive on the excitement of building and leading world class teams to pursue these ideas. I’ve spent about a third of my career with Fortune 500 companies, and the other two thirds with entrepreneurial startups. Though I’ve devoted much of my career to endeavors in the financial services and insurance industries, technology has always played a key role in my work.

Founding Knowledge Rules, a highly-specialized business process management (BPM) technology firm, was a chapter of my career that harmoniously combined my business experience, team acumen, and love for new technologies. When the firm was acquired by Accenture in 2010, I was hungry to find new dots to connect.

My new passion: IoT and Data Management

We have been working on our Data Management Platform for four years under the name Point.io. Because of the success of our flagship product, Microshare, we have decided to rename the company.

microshare.io is a product designed to manage the data end-to-end, including universal access, privacy and permission-based sharing. We can securely store billions of pieces of IoT data on our Cloud servers. Our Patent Pending Policy Fabric software enables just-in-time sharing of private data under the right circumstances with complete security, auditability, compliance and control. With microshare™ I can share just the data I want, with whom I want, just for a specific purpose.

Ron has served on both public and private boards serving on multiple committees including Audit, Governance, Technology and Investment. He most recently served on the board of Philadelphia Insurance Companies (NASDAQ: PHLY). Ron earned a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from LaSalle University in Philadelphia PA.
