Jim Olsen serves as Chief Technology Officer at ModelOp where he leads the technical innovation and design of the ModelOp Center platform. Jim is also integral to advising ModelOp customer CIOs and CTOs on requirements to better support their IT operations as they execute on digital business strategies that often strain technology infrastructure.
Recently, Jim has taken his technology expertise to his off the grid cabin where he continues to innovate building low power computing networks powered entirely by solar power. Jim continues to design and develop our ModelOp software in the remote mountains of Colorado using specialized off grid computing systems and satellite internet, while conquering the challenges of a seasonal road closure during the winter, and living miles from the nearest neighbor.
