Hari Jayaram, 2015 Honoree

Vice president, enterprise infrastructure solutions and support, Global Information Services
Applied Materials
Austin, Texas
A job responsibility you'd like to eliminate:
Cost-cutting. In 25 years in IT, I have never had a budget increase.
Career highlight:
In 2013, Applied hosted the president of the United States. I had the opportunity to sit in the front row during his remarks and meet him afterward. As a recently naturalized citizen, it was a moving experience.
What's your boldest prediction for IT in the next five years?
With cloud computing and services-based organizations, IT will be like a utility. You can tap into the required services without having to hire the entire staff.
