Barbara W. McDonald
IBM Corporation

Biographical Sketch:
I graduated from NMSU in 1989 with a BS in Comp Sci and minors in Math and Economics and started working for IBM in San Jose, CA, as a software developer for the Storage Division. The first 12 years of my career with IBM was focused on DFSMS software development, specifically with access methods and device support for storage hardware. I then refocused my attention to distributed storage and spent 4 years as a project manager bringing to market a new product for storage management. After 20 years with IBM, my current position is as the DFSMS Product Manager, bridging the marketing and development organizations.
