Louise Ng Chief Technologist – Cloud & Automation, WW Strategy & Solutions, HP Professional Services


I have worked in or around IT for over 30 years and appreciate the effort it takes to modernize an IT Operation.

I began working as a developer of applications that supported an IT Service desk. As my career moved to HP I worked to build a universal Change Management process during the Telco deregulation in the US. Then as a Test Manager for HP on behalf of the Department of Justice support the compliance audit for de-regulation.

As my career at HP continued I moved into the “trouble shooting” area where I began the “go to” technical consultant where I was expected to investigate the problem and build a “get well” strategy for the customer. That is where I found my most exciting work. Through this work I was able to show off that leadership quality and bring the right resources together to push the projects over the finish line.

I’ve grown from trouble shooter – “ACE” program manager to Sales support and Sales Support Manager. These roles were also customer facing roles that allowed me to meet with the customers to determine a best practice approach to making change happen that provided the expected outcomes to improve overall strength of IT – moving them from reactive to proactive operations.

In my latest role as CTO for Cloud Hybrid Delivery in our WW Strategy & Solutions organization I am providing thought leadership based on my years of experience in the field with customers and addressing the new generation of IT with the changes in operating model utilizing the “as a service” concepts to support the business’s use of IT to reach the agility it needs to compete in their vertical market.
