IT Professional and Teacher

“The diverse systems and issues I come across on a daily basis help to make my job rewarding.”
Jeff Fineberg, Database Analyst
Enterprise Application Services

Jeff Fineberg has always respected and admired UB, earning undergraduate degrees here in Music and Media Studies, and a Masters in Computer Science. In 1996, he joined Enterprise Application Services (EAS), a unit responsible for developing and maintaining services like MyUB and HUB.

As a Database Analyst/Administrator, Jeff is responsible for performing database maintenance activities on a variety of platforms, including Datacom, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and MySQL.

Working on projects to implement new systems as well as existing applications ensures that Jeff keeps his skills current. He feels that the diverse systems he encounters on a daily basis make his job rewarding. Troubleshooting UB systems and resolving problems is also an interesting challenge for him.

Jeff also teaches at UB, most recently a database course for the School of Management.  He has previously taught computer programming, database management systems, and systems analysis for UB’s Millard Fillmore College (MFC) and former School of Informatics, in addition to Bryant and Stratton College.  Being both a practitioner and educator, Jeff needs to always stay informed with the latest technology.  

Prior to his career with UB, Jeff worked with Northeast Machine in computer operations and inventory control, later moving on to Copeland Data Systems as a software developer.

Away from UB, Jeff enjoys playing piano and synthesizers, and often experiments with computer-based music. He likes the challenges of pulling technologies together as part of the music composition process.
