I have been working in servers for almost 10 years with intel and in the last 4 years, much of my job had me focused on how IT uses server technology to create business value. It was an awesome experience where I learned new things every day from OEMs, Intel's customers, sales force and with social media ... many extended.
During my role as an end user product marketing manager, I found that Intel IT was an extremely valuable source of learning for me to understand the end customer of the products that Intel makes and enables. I also found that end user IT organizations valued hearing how Intel IT was approaching business challenges and deploying technology solutions to create value. So when I was given the opportunity to move into Intel IT and be part of that team and learn from the inside out, my decision was easy.
I'm excited about seeing all aspects of technology (client, server, storage, network, facility, pc companions ... ), how IT aligns to business goals, makes investment trade-offs, implements new projects without disrupting business processes, and a host of other topics. My learning curve is steep and fast (just the way I like it). So as I transition and learn about Intel IT from the inside out, I will continue to share my experiences and learnings as i go
