Mr. Joel Jacobs
Mr. Joel Jacobs is vice president and chief information officer of The MITRE Corporation. He leads the Center for Information and Technology (CI&T), the organization providing comprehensive information technology, corporate communications, knowledge management, and enterprise architecture services to the corporation.

Under Mr. Jacobs' leadership as CIO, MITRE has been recognized for its innovative IT practices and for its outstanding work environment for technology professionals. In 2011 and 2012, MITRE was named to the InformationWeek 500, the magazine's annual ranking of the nation's most innovative users of business technology. Computerworld has named MITRE one of the country's "100 Best Places to Work in IT" for eight consecutive years (2005-2012). The company was also named a North American Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) award winner in 2009 and 2011.

He served as director of the MITRE Software Center, as department head of Advanced Information Systems Technology, as a principal investigator in information systems research, and as executive director of Information Technology and Services. He also led several projects in which the government adopted commercial open systems standards, including the first large-scale purchase of commercial Internet Protocol components.

The Evolution of the IT Performance Evaluation | The MITRE Corporation

"What we value is high performance of our services and strong execution on our projects," says Joel Jacobs, vice president and CIO at The MITRE Corp., a not-for-profit science and engineering organization. Jacobs is clear about his expectations, and, like other IT leaders, he wants to make sure his IT staffers are meeting those objectives. But what's the best way to determine if that's the case? Gone are the days when technologists were measured on straightforward, quantifiable metrics that reflected a heads-down development focus. But what should replace those metrics? "We have to decide what we measure, and that's true in any part of the organization, not just IT," Jacobs says.
