ARI KAPLAN is an active member of the Swedish-Russian Working Group on the Fate of Raoul Wallenberg since 1998. His involvement included making several trips to Vladimir and other prisons around Moscow to analyze the prisoner record system to verify or deny eyewitness testimony. Mr. Kaplan designed and developed several database systems for Vladimir Korpus 2 study (with Marvin Makinen) and for Interrogation, Transport, and Investigation Pattern Studies (with Susan Mesinai). Kaplan plans to continue to work with Dr. Makinen and Ms. Mesinai on-site in preparing new algorithms and database queries, and setting up new databases for simulating incoming/outgoing registries of sites and to cross-reference lists of prisoners in convoy along routes where Wallenberg has been reportedly seen.
Ari Kaplan is CEO and President of the Independent Oracle Users Group, a 17,000 member professional technical association. He was the CEO and CTO for Expand Beyond Corporation before its acquisition in March 2005 by Datalink (Amex DLK). Kaplan received his Bachelor’s degree in Engineering from the California Institute of Technology and in 1997 was awarded the school’s prestigious « Alumni of the Decade » distinction. In 2001, he was included in Crain Communications’ « 40 Under 40 » profile of business leaders.
