Master's degree in mathematics

Since my graduation from SPb State University I have participated in complex software projects devoted to development of multi-user distributed environments. Simultaneously I have worked as a researcher in this area. From my point of view there is a big gap between theoretical approaches and practical implementation of most tasks in real systems.
I have attended several scientific conferences. The most of presented papers were devoted to theoretical approaches and have never been implemented. Our approach devoted to corporate knowledge management and customer relationship management is an implementation of the developed theoretical approach to knowledge logistics based on the knowledge fusion
