Mandate as the CIO
I am responsible for all aspects of IT and manage some other functions including coordinating cross-functional process improvement. Some of the operational priorities are modernizing various processes and systems. We are focused on improving process and upgrading while replacing obsolete systems and infrastructure. Another example is as soon as we announced our new product, SGI NAS, we started planning how we would add it to our infrastructure. It is important that my team and I consistently ask what we can improve on and leverage the best resources.
Silicon Graphic and Rackable System: The Tech Merger
I started with the company Rackable Systems six years ago. At that time there was very little IT infrastructure. The initiatives for the first couple years were to implement ERP and CRM systems, achieve SOX compliance, as well as scale the infrastructure to support a rapidly growing business.
