Joseph Starwood

I help businesses optimize their IT investments and extract the greatest business value from their information technology (IT) assets.

I am passionate about aligning information technology with business strategy, and recently co-developed a model for achieving business-IT alignment. I excel in developing value propositions through innovative solutions that drive business results. I have the technical expertise and essential understanding of key business drivers to enable business capabilities that positively impact revenue, profit, and competitive position.

I have delivered successful solutions across several industry sectors: mining & metals, oil & gas, defense & aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, electronics, engineering, laboratory, telecommunications, retail, supply chain, financial services, insurance, banking, and federal, state, and local government.

I currently serve as a Senior Manager of Enterprise Architecture for North America for a global business and IT consulting firm. There, I focus on business strategy, IT strategy and governance, architecture practice and governance, transformative enterprise architecture, application portfolio migration and rationalization, business development, and solution delivery.

Previously, I served as an Enterprise Architect at Westfield Group. Before this, I served as a Senior IT Architect in the Enterprise Architecture & Technology Center Of Excellence at IBM Global Services. And, prior to this, I served as the Senior National Enterprise Architect at Keane, Inc., and co-founder of its e-Architecture Strategic Practice.

I also possess unique experience in the mining & minerals and the oil & gas sectors; having been a Geologist and Geophysicist early in my career.

I am an IBM Certified IT Architect and OMG Certified UML Professional, and I hold a Bachelors degree in Geosciences from the University of Arizona.
