A Proven Relationship

Mark Tonnesen, CIO, Electronic Arts:

“Artizen has been a key partner to my success over the last eighteen years. I first reached out to Artizen in 1994 while working at Cisco Systems to lead our ERP and Service Logistics program that quite frankly was in trouble. Not only did Artizen bring the program management talent to the cause, but left Cisco with many best practices still in use today.

When Cisco built its world-class eCommerce platform, Artizen was again there to lead us in the successful delivery and acceptance of the solution. Artizen has proven to work in both high pressure and politically charged environments.

Since these early successes, I have come to rely on Artizen whenever I have large, important programs. Most recently, as the CIO of McAfee, I partnered with Artizen to improve McAfee’s overall program management methodologies. Improving our program management effectiveness has been key to turning around an IT organization that missed deadline, quality and cost commitments on more than 75 per cent of its projects. In the last quarter since implementing many improvements, we have delivered 100 per cent of our projects meeting all performance criteria.

I have always received the results I was seeking while using Artizen. They are partners you can count on. I will continue to use them in all my large and important programs.”
