I’m Nick Evans, Vice President and General Manager within the Office of the CTO at Unisys. As one of Consulting Magazine’s Top 25 Consultants for 2007, I lead the Strategic Innovation Program for the company, an internal and client-facing worldwide initiative.
I represent Unisys at the Research & Technology Executive Council (part of the Corporate Executive Board) and at the Berkeley Innovation Forum, founded by Professor Henry Chesbrough. In addition to my global innovation leadership role, I lead the CTO Office strategic planning function and various corporate research functions.
I have over 20 years of experience in all aspects of business innovation and emerging technology solution delivery in a wide variety of industries. I am the author of several business-oriented books on emerging technology and IT strategy including titles from Financial Times Prentice Hall, Microsoft Press, and Powersoft Press.
I have shared my thoughts in leading publications such as Fortune, Time Magazine, Financial Times, CIO Magazine, Optimize, Internet Week, RFID Journal, and Washington Technology. On top of that, I have worked with broadcast media such as CNBC “Squawk Box,” History Channel, Discovery Channel, and Business Talk Radio. I recently published an article in ComputerWorld about research I’ve done surrounding the adoption of social computing in the enterprise.
Before joining Unisys, I was Global Lead, Emerging Technology at BearingPoint Inc. I worked on the delivery of emerging technology strategies and solutions, including Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), wireless/mobility, Web services, business process management, real-time infrastructure, and security.
I’m frequently an advisor to the venture capitol community. Additionally, I’m on numerous boards, including the Emerging Technology Advisory Board for the Information Technology Association of America (ITAA) and as President and Founder of the Center for Ethical Identity Assurance (CEIA).
