Irwin Hom has more than 30 years’ experience designing systems software—from low-level device drivers to high-level user applications on multiple platforms. His focus for the past 12 years has been on developing personnel selection systems including designing, setting up and managing complete networks, and directing developers in support of Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC). In addition, Hom has many years of working with overall system concepts, technical approaches for meeting broadly stated specifications, allocation of requirements to system designs, preparation of preliminary specifications, and conducting tradeoff studies of performance and operating characteristics against the development risks as related to cost and scheduling concerns.
Hom is directly involved in working on interactive computer systems (including computer-based testing systems), networking and telecommunication systems, and database management systems. His background includes extensive experience designing, setting up, operating, troubleshooting, and maintaining Local Area Networks (LANs) for CAT-ASVAB and other applications. He developed and managed the CAT-ASVAB across five platforms and is currently managing a team on expanding operations to the Cloud. Hom has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from San Diego State University.
