Wolfgang Flatow

Wolfgang's professional career in IT spans 40 years. He began designing and writing programs for Xerox CPM PCs, Commodore 64 and Amiga, Atari ST, Apple II and Macintosh, IBM compatibles running Microsoft DOS and Windows.

No internet in those days, a World without instant developer references and code libraries.  Everything was built from original concepts and exploration.  This requires great focus, facilitates original thinking and drives innovation.

His early work includes specialist calculators, planetary orbit simulation and games.

My Joker Poker game was bundled with Commodore PCs and ported to 6 formats.

Commissioned work includes a client queuing application for Q Systems Perth that introduced a novel queue/department service matrix controlled by a mouse crosshair and controlled calling displays, service keypads, queue buttons and ticket printers.  Revolutionary in 1990, it sold to governments, social security, businesses Worldwide.

He was recruited by software houses in Perth from 1991 to 2001, including:

  • Southern Group – user interface specialist for a parliamentary hansard system
  • Rio Tinto – senior systems analyst and developer for one of the first corporate intranets at their Perth R&D facility.
  • I Need Hits – senior analyst and team leader for SEO services company

In 2003 I established CertainEdge in Brisbane to commercialize my Universal Database Schema for which I was granted a patent in 2004.  We developed a successful RAD enterprise platform called UniDap using the UDS architecture that delivered solutions to government and business Worldwide.

He continued R&D in pursuit of improved IT architecture and solutions to universal system problems, including:

  • Universal Taxonomy - a global categorization ID standard
  • Standalone Trust Platforms - immutable data systems without distributed blockchain
  • Guaranteed Security - impenetrable data and enterprise systems security

In 2018 I began research into complex numbers and the infinitely complex Mandelbrot Set.  

Two patent pending technologies emerged:

  • Fractal Asset Management – visible fractal asset tokens residing in and secured by fractals
  • Fractal Transformation – universal fractal data encryption

It is the latter that has led to the formation of Portalz Pty Ltd in 2022.

Fractal security R&D has led to a rich and versatile new art and science to revolutionize cybersecurity, particularly in the Post Quantum era.
