Mark Valcich directs Intel Corp.’s US Federal Civilian business, relationships and engagements. He works with government leaders, architects and engineers to exchange technology innovation information, use cases and reference architecture.
In 2018, Valcich led his team educating the federal government about hybrid multicloud strategy and architecture, artificial intelligence and data science. He and the Intel team are deeply engaged with the federal partner and contracting ecosystem to rapidly bring the consistent roadmap of Moore’s Law and technology business value to the government with solutions and reference architectures.
And as a company, Intel aims to disrupt industries and solve global challenges. It invents at the boundaries of technology to make transformative experiences possible for government, business, society and for every person on Earth — by harnessing the capability of the cloud, the ubiquity of the internet of things, the latest advances in memory and programmable solutions, and the promise of always-on 5G connectivity.
In addition, real-world applications of AI-powered by Intel are solving complex problems, making processes more efficient and creating new realities.
For example, the company collaborated with the Energy Department and the National Institutes of Health on an AI on high-performance computing project called CANDLE — an exascale deep learning and simulation that enabled precision medicine for cancer.
And in January 2015, Intel announced the Diversity in Technology initiative, setting a bold hiring and retention goal to achieve full representation of women and underrepresented minorities in Intel’s U.S. workforce by 2020. Intel achieved the goal in 2018.
As for personal career leadership, Valcich is an active member of the Homeland Security Defense Business Council and the Washington Homeland Security Roundtable. He’s also a member of the American Council for Technology – Industry Advisory Council and serves as a Voyagers Program mentor.
Valcich’s focus for the remainder of 2019 is to continue education on the benefits of emerging technologies and working with the federal partner and contracting ecosystem on engaging the government to evaluate, deploy and realize technology business value.
He plans to share industry best practices on several digital transformation topics and focus on collaborating with the government to implement hybrid multicloud architecture and realize the value of AI and data science.
