Executive Spotlight With Salesforce Business Development VP Michael Parker Highlights Company Initiatives, DOD’s IT Modernization Efforts

ExecutiveBiz featured Michael Parker, vice president of business development at Salesforce, in its most recent Executive Spotlight interview published Wednesday. He talked about his more than three decades of experience in public sector and how it could help with his responsibilities in his new role at the company. Discussions also covered the Salesforce Military Program, information technology modernization in the Department of Defense and the company’s recruitment efforts.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Parker about cloud:

“There’s been a strong focus and effort in the federal government and specifically with the DoD around cloud migration and cloud adoption. Most of the focus has been ‘infrastructure-as-service’ when we discuss cloud adoption. There are multiple levels of cloud adoption: from infrastructure as a service to platform as a service and software as a service.

If you think about that in terms of tiered support, Salesforce as a platform or software as a service solution allows our customers and our end users to reduce all of the complexity associated with managing the infrastructure. That also includes managing the data centers, managing software releases and sustainment of the core/legacy business systems.”
