When people agree with me, I always feel I must be wrong.  Ambrose Bierce 

Professor Zomaya consulted on the following topics: computer architecture and embedded systems, Internet solutions and web technologies, scientific computation, operations research, and process control. Overall, his interests lie in the wide area of “Information Technology” and many of its related applications. 

Professor Zomaya has been involved in a number of IT ventures. His general interest in the area of IT has given him the capability in utilizing his background to serve IT-intensive organizations by, for example, critically evaluating and independently examining functional parameters of existing and up-coming internet and communications related technologies (both hardware and software) and even recommending improvements (where appropriate). This also applies to all electronic componentary on board computers from PCs to high performance computers including peripherals. 

The end result is to be able to review, audit, upgrade or re-engineer an organization's entire IT system and business processes in order to recommend medium to long-term solutions that is within the organization's budget and consistent with its future growth objectives.

Professor Zomaya is able to provide consulting activities and media interviews on the following subjects: 

§  Cloud Computing

§  Cluster and Grid Computing

§  Green Computing

§  Parallel and Distributed Computing

§  High Performance Computing & Supercomputing

§  Complex Systems

§  Research Policy

§  Computer Science and Engineering Education
