Joe Fabris Interview
...
On Tuesday TreoCentral had a chance to sit down and chat with Joe Fabris, Senior Director for Wireless Solutions at Palm. Readers may have noticed that Fabris has made a couple of posts over at the Official Palm Blog - as well as a new audio interview on MSCMDM 2008. Fabris' position puts him at the forefront of dealing with wireless data syncing at Palm - and his 10 years of work at Microsoft before joining Palm give him a unique understanding of the solutions that Microsoft offers to enterprise companies. So: he was the right guy to speak with.
Fabris on MSCMDM2008
First thing's first - Fabris does indeed like that "Microsoft System Center Mobile Device Manager 2008" rolls off the tongue so cleanly, though he prefers to call it by it's acronym MSCMDM. Actually, he prefers to pronounce the acronym: "Microsoft Skz-um-dum.
...
Fabris is confident they'll have it ready to go when MSCMDM is launched in mid 2008.
...
Fabris then touched upon an issue that Steve Ballmer talked about during his keynote, though Fabris was much clearer.

...
That's where their "special sauce" comes in. We've already seen improvements to the Windows Mobile platform like photo speed dial and a search bar integrated into the today screen, but Fabris also hinted that Palm has other tricks up their sleeve for the future.
...
Fabris said that Palm doesn't have any plans to extend MSCMDM to either Garnet or the upcoming Linux-based OS. The inference we at TreoCentral draw is pretty clear: Palm intends to use Windows Mobile for business and is looking to make their Linux-based OS a killer consumer smartphone. Now that they have some breathing room to work with in enterprise sales, they can create the first genuine OS that can rival the iPhone for consumers.
...We'd say they're building an "iPhone killer," but that phrase gets bandied about so much that anything that gets called "iPhone killer" is so far, justifiably, mocked.
Anyhow - that about wraps up our conversation with Joe Fabris.

"I'm excited to join such a great organization that is dedicated to one of the loves of my life, track and field," noted Joe.

As an elite athlete, Joe ran cross country & track in high school and junior college, finishing off with a scholarship to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. After college, he clocked a 3:58.3 mile at the 1982 Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, OR, and went on to compete at the 1984 U.S. Olympic Trials.

After graduating with an MBA from Cal Poly, Joe began his professional career in technology by joining IBM in 1984, bringing IBM mainframe solutions to the aerospace industry. He then spent the next 11 years at Microsoft as Systems Engineer, Sales Executive and Regional Marketing Director. During that time, Joe earned the Chairman's Award Rolex watch twice, Microsoft's top field award. He also pitched the eventual building of the Microsoft campus to Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer, now located in Mountain View, CA. As Senior Marketing Director at Palm Inc., from 2003 to 2007, Fabris played an instrumental role in launching Palm's Treo line of phones and their first Windows mobile phone, the Treo 700w. He also served as one of the press and analysts spokesmen for Palm. Prior to working at Palm, from 2000 to 2003, Joe was actively involved with a number of community organizations, including serving on the Board of Directors (currently serving) of the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, CA, chairing the Gizmo WYSIWYG fundraising event for three years & launching a new fundraising Video Game Tournament using the IMAX dome, called the MaxGames. Additionally, Fabris was also a Director with the San Jose Symphony and at Villa Montalvo. The Fabris family leads a very active lifestyle. He and his wife Lori are avid cyclists, and tour annually, while his two daughters both compete in track & cross country. Lori and Joe are also the Trustees of the Fabris Family Foundation, which focuses on educational, health, and environmental giving.
