Domenica Cresap Is a Senior-Level IT Executive
In 2011, Domenica Cresap entered the burgeoning field of data and information technology analysis; the experience would inspire the direction of her career to this day. Domenica was hired as the Director of National Solutions and Alliances at MetaScale LLC, a national data solutions provider for healthcare providers and Fortune 500 companies. She drove the company’s expansion into new markets and created valuable lines of communication between industry leaders and consultants. Similar to her prior roles, Domenica secured major contracts that comprised the firm’s largest accounts; she also collaborated directly with companies to provide end-to-end solutions to “big data” problems.
After two years with MetaScale LLC, Domenica entered into a product-focused sales position as a Senior Account Manager at EMC Corporation. Here, Domenica worked for a year consulting directly with businesses in strategic IT transformation, cloud solutions, virtualization, analytics, infrastructure, and data security. While Domenica prospered in her career and proved herself to be adept at managing cross-functional team experts and many complex technology strategies, she decided to alter her approach to the industry: she wanted to focus on the industry’s forensics, not its machinery. In 2014, she joined Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, where she now consults IT integration plans herself.
With her sharp and strategic thinking, Domenica helps businesses understand IT at an executive level so that they can monopolize its data and analytics to best serve internal and external needs. There are problems to solve at every level. Matters of strategic sourcing, enterprise information and management, security and risk governance, and much more need to be carefully developed for success. IT should never be a last-minute resource in case of a problem or emergency; it needs to be integrated into day-to-day operations.
Domenica Cresap considers herself more of a partner than just a consultant; every executive has to help her understand their business, and vice versa. To ensure that she understands the overall framework of IT as well as tailored solutions, Domenica attends dozens of high-level executive IT conferences through Gartner every year, such as the Gartner Symposium, bringing together the best professionals in enterprise technology in the world.
Domenica believes that IT conferences are one of the best ways to learn about the advancements in the industry. By attending these world-class technology conferences, Domenica Cresap is provided with the opportunity to “learn from world-class speakers, and to network with industry influencers.” Domenica has met with CEOs from top 100 companies such as Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo, and has even had the privilege of listening to the Secretary of Defense speak about how the government uses IT. The conferences are inspiring and energizing, so Domenica makes sure to attend them regularly as the list of tech conferences seems to grow continuously year after year.
As Domenica’s extensive management and IT experience demonstrate, she is “a bit of a workaholic,” but if her successful career is any indication, that doesn’t seem to be such a bad thing. Domenica Cresap internalizes whatever problems her clients experience to make them her own problems, not stopping until they’re solved.
