BiographyAnne Margulies is University Chief Information Officer at Harvard, where she provides strategic leadership, planning, and management of technology programs that focus on the University's instruction, research, administrative, and IT infrastructure needs. In addition to her institution-wide technology planning and coordination role, Anne directly oversees the IT functions of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the Central Administration.
Anne represents Harvard on the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center, a ground-breaking collaboration of five universities (Boston University, Harvard, MIT, Northeastern University, and the University of Massachusetts) and the Commonwealth, to develop a $95M, 90,000 square foot, research and high performance computing datacenter in Holyoke, MA. The datacenter is under construction and slated to be operational in early 2013.
Before returning to Harvard—she had been Assistant Provost and Executive Director for Information Systems in the late 1990s—Ms. Margulies was Assistant Secretary for Information Technology and CIO for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In this capacity she developed and implemented a statewide strategic plan for IT and oversaw consolidation of a vast patchwork of agency IT organizations, operations, datacenters, and networks into a coherent statewide structure. She had oversight responsibility for $500M in annual IT spending and led an IT community of more than 2000 professionals providing statewide computing, networking, and applications development services.
