Michael F. Murphy has joined ARMdcs as a strategic advisor to senior management and the Board. In this capacity, he will support the Company in the market launch of its advanced software cARMa™ and bundled services for dramatically improving telecommunication carrier's and data center's customer experience, network connectivity efficiencies, and cost management.
"ARMdcs is excited to leverage Mike's extensive experience working in start-ups and large software development and service firms," said Frank McDermott, CEO. "He has the perfect mix of global telecommunications experience at the board and corporate executive levels, has been successful in bringing numerous products and services to market, and has a history of growing both top and bottom lines."
Murphy was most recently with FTI Consulting, Inc. as a senior managing director, where he founded and co-led its merger integration practice, and oversaw IT and operational transformation services for twelve years. Previously Murphy was the CEO of AMBEO, a Partner at Arthur Andersen, SVP at American Management Systems, Inc. and an executive in the Diversified Group at US West, where he held numerous positions of increasing responsibility.
While $215 billion sounds like Apple's immense hoard of cash, a segment's capital investment, or perhaps industry profits, it is a shocking estimate of 2014 global telecommunications lost revenue due to poor data integrity. That stunning number is supported by ARM's independent evaluations and another firm's assessment of the state of inventory data integrity spanning the last decade.
