Greg Olsen, Manager, Data Integrations, Adobe

Greg Olsen has been involved in data integrations in the Silicon Valley for almost 20 years. He has worked at companies like Vanstar, Hewlett-Packard, Contivo, SanDisk, and Adobe Systems where he is currently the Manager of Data Integrations. He has a passion for the domain since without integrations, companies would be at the mercy of direct file transfers which get messy quickly. At Adobe, Greg and his team have implemented SAP XI/PI, TIBCO EMS and TIBCO BW, and Layer 7. We have seen tremendous growth in the integrations domain with a strong push to use the tools for more than just “data integrations”, but as a way to enforce data security standards. Layer 7 plays a critical role in the enforcement of our security standards both now and into the future.
