Thoughts on IT
I am passionate about the transformation of enterprise IT as consumer technologies, SaaS and the explosion of information shift the traditional role of IT from a utility organization to an innovative leader, driving stronger engagement with customers, employees and partners. I'm a frequent industry conference speaker on topics such as the evolving partnership between IT and marketing, and the key technology shifts — user experience, information management and services orientation — changing the face of enterprise IT.
