Teesee Murray describes her job of helping customers move to the cloud and digitization as "an adventure." She thinks it's fun - hard work and smart people coupled with tenacity and creativity to blaze a trail in the digital world. And now Infor's VP of Digital Strategy & Cloud is being recognized with a "Ones to Watch" Award from CIO magazine - in part for her optimistic approach. The awards honor rising stars in IT - senior staff identified by current CIOs as likely CIOs of the future.
"I am so honored," Murray says. "But this really is an Infor team award."
Murray was nominated by Infor SVP Peg Rodarmel for her global leadership of the Digital Strategy & Cloud Team that is helping Infor customers pivot to the cloud and modernize their technology.
Teesee provides thought leadership and innovative ideas to our customers by leveraging her business acumen, vision, and experience to transform their organizations," Rodarmel said. "She aligns them to their overall digital business strategy so they can drive revenue expansion, reduce costs, quickly change to meet their customers' changing requirements, and energize enterprises for sustained growth and performance."
"It's an incredible experience partnering with Infor customers on their modernization journey," Murray says. "Transformative opportunities like this are rare, so it's a pleasure to acknowledge all we've achieved. Even more exciting is bringing it all together with AI, machine learning, IoT, and analytics/insights to deliver customers' improved business outcomes. I am grateful for my talented teammates who collaborate daily with a prime focus on our customers' success. Together, we achieve amazing results-with an even brighter future."
Nominees are judged on their job history, on-the-job accomplishments, and leadership attributes by a panel of veteran CIOs and members of the CIO Executive Council. Fifty winners are selected annually.
"Digital businesses need business savvy tech leaders to advance their organization and the 2018 Ones to Watch awards recognize these individuals," said Adam Dennison, SVP & General Manager, IDG Events and CIO Executive Council, and Publisher, CIO. "The winners all demonstrated the kind of innovative spirit, focus and determination that future CIOs will need."
The Ones to Watch Awards ceremony will be held March 21 during the AGENDA18 conference in Miami.
