We are thrilled to welcome Ed McGillis as our VP of Emerging Technologies, whose focus will be on identifying and evaluating technology opportunities, pollinating the best approach for our company, and helping to put together strategic and value added solutions for our customers. Ed brings a strong and diverse background to this effort and his initial undertaking will be to lead us into greater strength in the Business Intelligence and Machine Learning Space – focusing as always on the Microsoft Platforms – within Azure.
Ed graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Ed then went on to earn his Master’s degree in Computer Science from the College of Engineering at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, and he also currently holds the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification.
Ed has spent nearly two decades in Technology, with the last decade spent in the professional services and consulting arenas. He started his career with Olin Corporation / Winchester working both in the office and out in the field creating and deploying technology solutions for office and factory workers.
Ed eventually moved on to accept a Senior Consultant position at Quilogy (later purchased by Aspect Software). This is where Ed was able to discover his passion for professional services by servicing Customers and delivering truly differentiated and value added solutions. Over the next decade, this passion allowed Ed to hold multiple roles of increasing responsibility at Aspect Software culminating in a role as Director of Professional Services with oversight of Aspect’s worldwide Business Intelligence, CRM, Collaboration, and Self Service practices.
