My name is Hans Konstapel and I own a company called Constable Research BV.
I am a business-strategist and a software-architect with a long term experience in many industries.
I worked for more than 20 years in the Banking Industry and know a lot about Smart Systems (Artificial Intelligence, Expert Systems, Sensors, Proces Managers, Visualisation, Games, ..), Investment Banking and Big Data (Statistics, Operations Research, Pattern Recognition).
I am an expert in Cycles and Cyclic Systems that contain complex feedback and feedforward loops. Companies and people are not aware of the short- and certainly not of the longterm cycles.
I believe History repeats itself all the time using new terminology and technology. We can learn a lot from the past.
The aim of my company is Business-Development using Intelligent Technology.
Because of my huge network I am able to find people (mostly owning companies themselves) to help you to create a new company or to innovate your current company. I can also help you to find funding for your plans or to create a plan or a new concept.
I am 67 years (22-04-1951, 1:02, Leiden, The Netherlands) old and have aquired a lot of experience in many fields.
This website contains more than 250 Blogs and is the repository of my knowledge and experience. It has been visited until today by more than 650.000 people from all over the world.
With some of these people I have created a long-term research-relationship.
Everytime when I learn something I write a little Story. Most of the time this Story is related to the History of the Subject. I love to research History.
I am or was a Scientist, an Artist, a Mathematician, an Operations Research Analyst, a Software Engineer, a Designer, a DA and a DBA (IMS, DB2), a Bookkeeper, a Journalist, a Project Manager, a Group Manager, a Senior Manager,A Vice President, a Program Manager, an Information Manager, a Historian, a Strategist, a Visionair, a Financer, an Investor, an Architect, a Meta Group Analyst, a Story Teller, a Broker, a Builder, an Entrepreneur, a Teacher, a Poet, a Writer, a Game Developer, a Singer (Counter Tenor), a Corporate Searcher, a Lobbyist (EG, Brussels), a Coach, and a Philosopher.
I worked for ABN & ABN AMRO, the European Union, HP (Advisor Bristol Labs, Corporate Advisory Board), Meta Group, Wolters Kluwer, Intellinex, Ecclestone Holding (Formula I), RABO-Bank, KPN, Elsevier, Interpay, NUON, KLM, Cordys, Accenture, Cap Gemini, the Dutch Government (Health Care, Education, Urban Planning), Dutch Television, The Royal Academy of Arts in the Hague, Endemol, CWI (Dutch Center for Research in Mathematics and Informatics), the Dutch Inland Revenue, TNO (Dutch Government Research Organization) and was a member of the ESPRIT Advisory Board and the FIWG (Banking Advisory Committee) of the EG in Brussels.
At this moment my main interests are Smart Systems, Cyclic Systems, Resilience, Education/Change Management, the Relationship between Psychology (Mind) and Physics (Matter) (Para-Psychology) and the History of Science.
I am creating new companies in the area of healthcare (using sensor-technology & semantic analytics), food (the relationship between food & healthcare), restructuring the food-value-chain, new retail concept, creating business out of Open Data, new care & cure-systems, software-quality, security (with a priority for social innovation), care-robots, innovation-management (with Inpaqt), and smart social support systems.
I am also very active in the field of cancer research in which we develop systems that are based on new theories in Biophysics in which the human is seen as a resonating system (Bio-Resonance, Bio-Photones).
I was the director of the Future Center Smart Systems.
Between 1977 and 1997 I have worked at ABN and ABN AMRO mostly as the Manager of Strategists and Architects. My favorite domain was the Money Market (Investment Banking). It is the most complex area of the Banking Industry.
In 1997 I started my own Company, Constable Research.
Between 1997 and now I have operated in almost every business area as an Independent Strategic Advisor and Architect.
I was employed by Meta Group as an Analyst and Senior Consultant until it was taken over by Gartner.
Because I have operated in all kinds of Businesses and Government I have a tremendous Oversight.

Experience (1997-to day) in Reverse Order
In 2012 I was hit by a severe heart-attack in combination with a cardiac arrest. After a long time of revalidation I tried to work again but I am still suffering from a shortage of energy. This is the reason why I have to define priorities in my life.
Since 2007 I have changed my activities from long term assignments to short term assignments.
I spend a lot of time doing research, talking with people (coaching) and writing about all kinds of subjects on my website.
I have also expanded my network in many new areas of society.
At this moment my main activity is Business Development and Coaching.
I am involved in the creation of many very interesting new companies that have the potential to beat the Big Companies in the Near Future because they are small and agile!
From april 2000 until may 2016 I was the Creator and Coordinator of the Smart Technology Network. This is a Wordwide group of experts that are active in many business-domains with the creation and implementation of Smart Technology. Examples are Smart Buildings, Smart Cities and of course Smart Healthcare (Medical Sensors).
