Information Systems and Innovation
The Senior Vice President Engineering and Chief Information Officer (CIO) is responsible for monitoring and maintenance of ICANN systems and technical operations, corporate security, and Information Technology, and the ICANN DNS Engineering Team (http://www.dns.icann.org/), which administers L-root and ICANN's DNS network services.
The Engineering and IT team is organized to optimize the management of a portfolio of responsibilities:
The corporate Engineering team develops, deploys, manages and maintains a catalog of over 63 digital services, including solutions developed in-house and off-the shelf, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions. The catalog includes The Centralized Zone Data Service (CZDS), Root Zone Management (RZM), Naming Services portal, WIKI, and icann.org. These services are extended globally, many in multiple languages, to serve the needs of the ICANN community, the Board and ICANN staff.
The Staff Operations team develops, deploys, manages and maintains 18 different internal services in support of the ICANN Organization. These include solutions developed in-house and off-the shelf, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions
The corporate IT security team secures, monitors and manages data-assets, such as private data from the community of contracted parties, which are entrusted with ICANN for safe-keeping.
The corporate IT infrastructure team serves the day-to-day needs of ICANN's globally-dispersed staff and, periodically, the high-intensity needs of ICANN's Board (during Board meetings) and community (during ICANN meetings). The ICANN Domain Name System (DNS) Engineering team (http://www.dns.icann.org) engineers, administers and manages ICANN's DNS network services and the global L-root constellation.
