Tom Nolle is the president and founder of CIMI Corporation and the principle consultant/analyst. Tom started his career as a programmer, and moved through various programming and programmer/analyst positions to manage software project teams and entire software projects. His background as a software programmer and architect makes him a hands-on kind of expert, a blend of strategic insight and in-the-trenches practical knowledge. Tom still does articles on software design, and also articles on business and market strategy. Wherever you fit in that spectrum, he's qualified to help.
Tom founded CIMI Corporation in 1982. In that same year he began writing regularly for the technology press, and has written for virtually every major tech publication in the networking and IT space, from ComputerWorld, BCR, and Information Week to CIO Magazine, Network World, and Telecommunications Magazine. He's spoken regularly at trade shows and participated in multiple international standards groups on topics ranging from network management to electronic data interchange. He's currently a member of the ETSI NFV ISG and is a past member of the IPsphere Forum and the TMF.
