I have 11 years of finance experience in both financial operations and internal financial management, for three different Fortune 500 companies. My true love however is technology. I read Engadget, ARS Technica and a number of other tech blogs. I keep up on whats out there in terms of computer security, new products, and new theories (think virtualization, cloud computig and storage, etc.) (I actually run VMWare on a server in my basement so I can easily try out new OSs.) Lately at my company they have been touting 'bring your own device', and some initiatives which will let employees bring their tablets to work. I love that stuff. I want to work in a group responsible for brining those ideas to the company and seeing them get implemented. So my question is, do companies have groups who do exactly this, or is this job rolled into some other IT function?
