OPIC's Zeppieri changes approach to technology
Wednesday - 10/13/2010, 4:41pm EDT
Zeppieri, who previously worked at the departments of Defense, Homeland Security, and Justice found himself initially in an operational role, taking care of the network and hardware and software requirements.
But now with the infrastructure issues mostly solved through a combination of cloud computing, virtualization, and other leading edge technologies Zeppieri sees his role as more of a business partner to the rest of OPIC.
OPIC has an IT budget for fiscal 2010 of about $7 million and a CIO office's staff of about 15 federal employees and 30 contractors.
Even with a small budget, Zeppieri has big plans including implementing an Oracle e-business suite of software, finishing the virtualization of its servers and beginning the research to move its e-mail to the cloud.
