About Us | Colin Strutt
Colin Strutt holds six patents on enterprise management technology and brings 30 years of direct experience with information systems to bear on the analysis, design, and management of networks and the businesses that depend on them. Interisle’s clients value his time-tested ability to cut through the maze of “visions of the future” to find the strategies that optimally balance risk and opportunity for real-world business enterprises.
Dr. Strutt’s expertise and experience have created substantial and sustainable value for a broad range of enterprises involved in discrete and process manufacturing, high tech, healthcare, government, and financial services. He is particularly adept at designing and running interactive meetings to develop strategies that transform key business systems, applications, products, and services, and at analyzing the financial impact of products and services in the marketplace.
Before co-founding Interisle, Dr. Strutt was responsible for defining the program that delivered the eBusiness Vision Workshop to Compaq Computer Corporation’s Professional Services clients. This service offering helped clients make sense of the confusing world of eBusiness and define strategies for realizing their enterprise's eBusiness vision. From 1980 to 1999, as a project leader, technical leader, and technical director at Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) and Compaq, he led projects in DECnet, Ethernet, terminal servers, enterprise management, directory services, collaboration software, Internet appliances, and security. Before joining DEC, Dr. Strutt worked from 1975 to 1980 at British Airways, ensuring that the operating systems and network software supported the airline's planning and operational research departments.
Dr. Strutt has published and spoken extensively on networking technology, enterprise management, eBusiness, and scenario planning, and has represented the interests of DEC and Compaq in national and international industry standards bodies.
