Mark Dajani, 2012 Honoree

Senior vice president, business services and CIO
Kraft Foods
Northfield, Ill.
Career highlight:
My first job as a second-shift production supervisor taught me the power of leadership. My supervisor helped me understand the impact of decisions and mistakes in such a way that I was able to use that as empowerment rather than fear.
Coolest current project:
Our 'Diji-Touch' technology, part of our broader advertising, sales, sampling and new product introduction platform for engaging consumers worldwide. It provides promotional offers and product information at point of sale, while providing us with consumer insights that help shape our product development and marketing approaches.
What's your boldest IT prediction?
Companies will live on the Internet instead of connecting to it. This will change technology in every form and fashion, from architecture to implementation.
