Previous Work Experience

Phil's IT career began in 1982 and he has held positions with: the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (consultant); Boston University (application developer); and Cullinet Software, where he developed commercial ERP applications and consulted with Cullinet's customer base before being promoted to MIS director. When CA bought Cullinet in 1989, Phil joined insurance company startup Arbella Mutual Insurance as director of applications, working with a management team to create an IT department and implement its initial applications/operating environment. In 1992, Phil accepted a director-level position with the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), where he directed a team that developed and distributed commercial software, implemented packaged financial applications, and rolled out the nation's first Internet-based information service to the worker's compensation insurance industry. Phil held the top management position in NCCI's $26 million Y2K program office — leveraging offshore programming resources to remediate applications and onsite staff to execute Y2K testing, effectively creating a round-the-clock remediation process.

Phil joined Giga Information Group in 1997 as an industry analyst, covering the Y2K phenomenon, and he was promoted to the position of managing director of research for its e-practices group in 2000. Since Forrester bought Giga in 2003, Phil has been bringing his broad technical and managerial experience to bear on application and IT management topics that concern Forrester's diverse client base.
