In the early 1980s, Veronika Megler was part of the birth of the computer games industry in Australia as the first employee of the heralded Melbourne House Publisher. While there, she wrote best-selling computer games, including a legendary cult game, the best-selling game ever on the Spectrum 64 home computer, The Hobbit. Twenty years has taken her career full circle -- after working in operations, application development, systems programming, systems management disciplines, project management, and IT management consulting, she spent a large part of 2003 working to match IBM's products with the nascent online games industry. Now a Senior IT Architect for IBM Sales and Distribution working on Offerings for Emerging and Competitive Accounts, she is passionate about making IBM solutions and technology usable by customers and consumers. She enjoys architecting solutions to solve real business problems, then proving they work in practice. Reach Monika at vmegler@us.ibm.com.
