Greenland International Consulting (Greenland) is seeking software programming and modeling specialists to join its collaborative teams partnering with the University of Guelph and University of Waterloo, Ontario Canada, as well as other U.S. and European collaborations.
As background, there is an explosive increase in demand for delivery of goods and services, complex communication and information, and real-time entertainment experiences. This high demand is driving the need for greater access and connectivity to the world around us such that the next generation of commercialization will be driven by data, business analytics and insights. Therefore, as an international (Canadian) award-winning environmental and water resources engineering and software development enterprise, Greenland understands there is significant opportunity for Ontario to establish leadership with Internet of Things (IoT) commercialization.
Given the increased public awareness of water management issues and the potential impacts of global climate change, Greenland has developed (over the past 15 years), new software tools to assist practitioners and policy makers with difficult decisions related to the planet's environmental challenges- including, a scarce supply of fresh water and quality. Greenland's niche software assets program has also involved the Province of Ontario and Federal Government. One of our flagship models includes CANWET which is an Internet-based and GIS (open source) water budget, nutrient management, contaminant transport, Best Management Practices / Low Impact Development and climate change impact software package. Other proprietary platforms include ISWMS and THREATS, as well as other tools with Artificial Intelligence model capabilities. Greenland's "toolbox details for social impact benefits" can be found at http://www.grnland.com
The Province of Ontario (Canada) is a major innovator and exporter of water related technology. Greenland is further developing its data cloud & integrated analytical systems for global project applications. These Cumulative Effects Decision Support Systems were the first-ever Canadian cloud-based analytical platforms and have allowed Greenland to continue scaling its vertical market - ecosystem goods and services related to the protection of environmental ecosystems. Further commercialization of these tools has also expanded Greenland's consulting services teams with private, public and NGO sector organizations.
