Bentley Systems: Dr. Paul Scarponcini Receives 2016 InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards Merit Award

Bentley Systems, Incorporated, a leading global provider of software solutions for advancing infrastructure, today announced that Paul Scarponcini, PE, Ph.D., Bentley senior information architect, geospatial and civil software standards, has been presented with a 2016 InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS) Merit Award. 

The award was given in recognition of Dr. Scarponcini’s numerous contributions to the INCITS/DM32.2 database standards community – including his important work on the SQL/MM Spatial standard.

Dr. Donald R. Deutsch, vice president, chief standards officer, Oracle, and chair of the INCITS DM32.2 database standards committee, said, “On behalf of the entire committee I want to congratulate Paul on being distinguished for his long-standing commitment to and support of our standards work. His award recognizes, in particular, his substantial contributions to the successful development and publication of the SQL/MM Spatial standard. I am certain that without his involvement, SQL/MM Spatial would never have happened!”

Lynn Barra, director, Standards Operations, INCITS, said, “Paul has served for more than 20 years as a major technical contributor, participant, and editor to the committee, as well as to the international mirror group ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC32 WG4, on SQL/Multimedia and application packages. He took the leadership role in harmonizing the SQL Spatial standard with both ISO TC211 and OGC, resulting in a common solution for all three standards bodies. His comprehensive knowledge of the subject matter is unparalleled.”

Commenting on his award, Dr. Scarponcini said, “I want to thank the INCITS organization for this tremendous honor, as well as for its crucial accomplishments as a leader in the standards development community. I also want to acknowledge the important contributions of all of the standards-developing organizations around the world with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working over the past 20 years.
