His duties: I am responsible for leading a team of infrastructure architects setting technology direction for Application Infrastructure, IT Operations, and Data Infrastructure. Focus areas include cloud computing, big data, continuous availability, technology portolio management, and software development lifecycle tooling.
Craig said: I previously served as a technical fellow, architect, lead systems engineer, and systems programmer. I designed and developed application infrastructure utilities & frameworks, web applications, and business services, as well as set direction for application infrastructure domains, including presentation, core utilities, service oriented architecture, business process management, and enterprise content management.
As part of our technology architecture team, I enjoyed learning about emerging technology and applying it to real business scenarios. It is very rewarding to follow an innovation from idea to implementation, such as mobile.usaa.com. My computer science education has been essential to my success, in that it has grounded me with the core technical knowledge required for accurate and viable technology decisions.
