« Back to It Advice Columns

Welcome to our Newest MIND: MOM

Mind Over Machines is delighted to announce the addition of the Ask MOM advice column.

MOM is a seasoned IT advisor to companies and government agencies large and small, and her columns will provide guidance for enterprise IT buyers, especially those getting ready to make their next IT move. She’ll specifically address the tricky aspects of complex technology projects – where the stakes are high, jobs are on the line, rules are largely unwritten, and the best course of action might not always be the easiest.

Drawing from over 25 years in the every-changing technology landscape, MOM has seen it all – from dramatic growth to dismal failure. Her history of “coming through in the clutch” has saved numerous projects (and businesses…and careers) from certain disaster, and we are proud to call on MOM for her wisdom, her savvy and of course, her advice.

About MOM

MOM is a seasoned IT advisor, business consultant, and former programmer. She wrote her first program many years ago, on the UNIVAC I, in COBOL. After skating punch tape around all day, she got to talking and giggling with a co-worker and wrote a “hot or not” program ranking the eligible bachelors in the office. From there, MOM's career in IT took off, and she gained a reputation as a go-to advisor for technology solutions that revitalize business.
