Program Vice President, Integration and Process Automation

Maureen Fleming is Program Vice President for IDC's Business Process Management and Middleware research area. In this role, Ms. Fleming examines the products and processes used for building, integrating, and deploying applications within an extended enterprise system.

With more than 20 years of industry and analyst experience, Ms. Fleming most recently came from Symantec, where she worked in the strategy and planning group. A major area of focus was examining emerging security technologies aimed at protecting an enterprise’s digital assets from outbound threats stemming from bad process and malicious employee behavior.

Prior to Symantec, Ms. Fleming ran marketing for a startup firm focused on commercializing the use of grid technology to deploy content and applications to the edges of networks. She also worked in the product marketing and the office of the CTO groups at Ascential Software before its acquisition by IBM. During her tenure there, she focused on the strategy, planning and product-enablement of real-time data integration. Prior to Ascential, Ms. Fleming led the team at a startup firm that invented the concept of business activity monitoring (BAM). Ms. Fleming was also an analyst at Gartner, where she researched technologies that allowed enterprises to create and manage information, particularly real-time information and the associated enabling technologies.

Ms. Fleming began her career in technology as a programmer for the University of Michigan, where she has a Bachelor’s of General Studies degree with concentrations in computer science, economics and journalism.
