About James Leone

I am a client-focused IT strategist with 20 years of experience leading change in development and operations programs to solve complex technology and cultural problems that have a positive impact on businesses. Accomplishing organizational success by fostering people, leveraging cross functional partnerships, adopting appropriate agile practices, and contributing architectural competencies in cutting edge software platforms. I have a deep understanding of working in a highly regulated environment, in particular healthcare, to meet compliance obligations while minimizing cost overhead.

In recent years, I have focused a lot in the technology areas of cybersecurity (secure application development), cloud, and device-to-cloud (IoT) solutions, with a sprinkling of data science and analytics (to measure and monitor success indicators).

Cybrary provides me with an outlet to share what I know about technology and learn from others that have a different perspective (stemming from working at different companies, working in different industries, having a different educational background, etc.). As a lifelong learner myself, I appreciate the opportunity to work with a range of students to discuss the variety of ways to apply technology and process to improve the services they provide and products they create.

One a more personal note, I have a beautiful wife and 4 children. With the youngest in high school, I’ve had the opportunity to reacquaint myself with lifelong interests in being physically active (sports, fitness, and hiking), cooking, and a bit of travel.
