Meet Vic Soder
Director, Deloitte Consulting LLP
Today more than ever, engineering and testing systems and applications to perform at their required service levels can make the difference, not just for the application and system, but for the business itself. The end-user perception of the system’s performance in day-to-day operations is as important as the actual application and system performance, and responsiveness and a poor perception can significantly decrease productivity.
Vic Soder understands these challenges. With more than 24 years of experience, Vic applies his skills in managing and coordinating performance and infrastructure activities in large-system implementations to enable Deloitte’s technology systems to perform well, to be scalable and to be reliable - thereby reducing the risk and improving the quality of the technology implementation and integration work that we perform for our clients.
In addition, Vic also assists clients with planning for these implementation projects. As a senior advisor he consults with clients in the areas of computer capacity planning, system scalability and application performance analyses - managing data center technical infrastructure, improving computer operations and deploying hardware and software infrastructure components. He has also provided assistance to clients in the areas of business continuity, disaster recovery and failover planning.
Vic has assisted clients in many industries, managed projects for numerous commercial and public sector clients and served as an advisor on industry-leading server and storage solution development efforts.
A native of Tacoma, Washington, Vic earned his undergraduate degree in mathematical studies from Stanford University and currently resides in the Portland, Oregon area.
