Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, the semiconductor industry is experiencing significant growth, with chip sales expected to rise 19.7 percent to $527 billion in 2021, according to World Semiconductor Trade Statistics. As Marvell’s CIO, I have supported our company’s own incredible transformational journey and seen our market value skyrocket 18X, from $2.5 billion to nearly $45 billion as of this writing.
A big part of my job is ensuring that our company is equipped with the most scalable and secure IT infrastructure possible to empower employees to do their best work and to help facilitate even faster innovation.
Toward that end, I am pursuing three key strategic objectives:
1: Support next phase of growth at scale. The future of the semiconductor business lies in emerging markets such as 5G, automotive, cloud and enterprise data centers, and we need to do all that we can to ride this next wave of opportunity. Enabled by a cloud-first strategy and new digital technologies, the objective is to provide global, scalable, and secure infrastructure for increasingly complex chip designs and capacity-constrained semiconductor supply chains.
