Robert S. Sullivan, Dean of the Rady School of Management, Assumes Chair of AACSB International

TAMPA, Fla., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Robert S. Sullivan, dean of the Rady School of Management at the University of California, San Diego, has been named chair of the AACSB International (AACSB) board of directors effective July 1, 2013, for a one-year term. Sullivan succeeds Joseph A. DiAngelo, dean of the Erivan K. Haub School of Business at Saint Joseph's University.

"AACSB is very fortunate to have one of the world's most experienced and accomplished management educators at its helm," said John J. Fernandes, president and chief executive officer of AACSB International. "Dean Sullivan is the right person to lead AACSB, the world's largest and oldest business school association, through a critical decision-making period in its continued globalization."

Dr. Sullivan's volunteer work with AACSB has spanned nearly two decades. He was originally elected to the AACSB board in 2006 as a member, and as vice chair-chair elect in 2012. Over the years, Sullivan has provided great direction to the future of management education by serving as chair and/or member of numerous committees and task forces including, the Blue Ribbon Committee on Accreditation Quality, the Finance and Investment Committee, the Impact of Business Schools Task Force, and the Committee on Issues in Management Education (CIME).

In addition, Sullivan has played an active role in the AACSB Accreditation process by serving as chair and/or member of several peer review teams and accreditation committees. He is a prominent speaker, and has presented at many AACSB conferences around the world.

"As we transition to the new accreditation standards, business schools around the world are feeling new pressures and dynamics that involve competition for students, the use of technology in learning, cost of education and more," said Rady School Dean Robert S. Sullivan. "It's an important time for all AACSB member schools, where quality and continuous improvement remain paramount. I look forward to working alongside the board to carry out the redefined vision and ensure the future success of management education."

Since 2003, Sullivan has served as the founding dean and Stanley and Pauline Foster Endowed Chair of the Rady School of Management at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Sullivan holds a doctorate in operations management from Pennsylvania State University, a master's degree in production management and quantitative methods from Cornell University, and a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Boston College.

Prior to joining the University of California, San Diego, Dr. Sullivan was dean of the Kenan-Flagler Business School at The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Sullivan has also served in a variety of posts at the University of Texas, Addis Ababa University, and Carnegie Mellon University.

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
