Senior Consultant


Prior to becoming an independent consultant, Mr. Baudoin was employed by Schlumberger, an oilfield services company, in various positions, including serving as IT and KM Advisor. In this role, he established a fruitful relationship with the MIT Media Lab; led an SOA strategy; developed an IT maturity model for the CIO's staff; created an internal wiki of 12,000 articles; managed efforts to apply social networking concepts in the enterprise; wrote a key study on global shared service centers for the executive staff; and began an evaluation of cloud computing opportunities for the organization. Prior to this role, Mr. Baudoin served as Technology Practice Director at Schlumberger. In this capacity, he developed a catalog of technical consulting offerings, defined a methodology for business process analysis and reengineering (before BPM was popular), and created the patented Security Maturity Assessment method for security consulting at the enterprise level.

He is coauthor of two books: Realizing the Object-Oriented Lifecycle and Méthodes de Programmation. The latter became a standard textbook on programming in France and other French-speaking countries for many years and its Russian translation was a standard textbook in the Soviet Union in the 1980s. He has served as Guest Editor for Amplify and has presented at international IT events. Mr. Baudoin has also written two patents: "Interenterprise Electronic Mail Hub" (granted in 1995 and assigned to National Semiconductor Corp) and "Security Maturity Assessment" (coauthored with Colin Elliott; granted in 2007 and assigned to Schlumberger).
