I had the opportunity to interview virtualization expert Andi Mann. Andi is currently the VP of Virtualization Product Marketing at CA Technologies responsible for the go-to-market planning and delivery of CA Technologies’ software solutions. Andi has also held senior level analyst positions with Fuji, American Express and Exxon.

As a CIO, I know you are always looking for that seat at the executive table. In my conservation with Andi, he and I discuss approaches and language that you, the CIO, can use to avoid a virtual stall in your Virtualization Strategies. It is important for the CIO to approach virtualization as a strategy – – not a project.

Andi also suggests that IT executives emphasize business language when discussing Virtualization and Cloud such: agility, flexibility, faster time to market, innovation, generating faster cash, generating faster revenue, getting products onto the shelf, leapfrog competitors, etc.

Watch this video and learn from an expert how you can accomplish this.

Note: More video posts with my conservation with Andi to come – keep checking!
