Introduction to my blog

Welcome to “From the CIO’s Office.” I’m Tom Gill, Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Plantronics where I lead our Global IT team. I plan to engage on a variety of topics relevant to IT and business decision makers including, smarter working, the future of work, Unified Communications and Consumerization of IT.

How are you enabling tablets in your enterprise? We just announced general availability of VDI infrastructure for iPads at Plantronics. Almost 25% of our knowledge workers now have iPads connected to the enterprise and our mission is to enable our entire application stack using Citrix XenApp. Feedback from Sales is fantastic!
