Marc T. DeBonis
Marc DeBonis is the Director of Collaborative Computing Solutions (CCS), a unit of the Division of Information Technology (DoIT) at Virginia Tech. The department provides service ownership for several critical collaborative services to the university, including Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (Paas) technologies through partnership with Microsoft (Microsoft 365) and Google (Google Workspace for Education). Components of these overarching services support CCS’ management and oversight of Virginia Tech’s high-volume email and calendaring solutions, email routing and domain reputation. In addition to these multi-platform hybrid cloud solutions, CCS manages a cost-effective on-premises compliant (PII/ePHI) virtual hosting environment, administration of on-premises and in-cloud Microsoft infrastructure (Active Directory and Azure Active Directory) and serve as “cloud brokers” to the university for provisioning of Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS and Google GCP cloud accounts, services, and solutions.
CCS’ mission is to provide the Virginia Tech community with stable, scalable, and secure customer-focused systems, services, and solutions. CCS partners with customer organizations, higher education institutions, industry partners and administrative and academic units to bring forward best-of-breed enabling technology. CCS's continuing goal is a dynamic and cost-effective customer-focused computing environment that supports the needs for today and the future.
Mr. DeBonis received his B.S. in Computer Science (CS/IS) from the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering at State University of New York at Binghamton (now Binghamton University) and a M.S. in Information Technology (IT/IS) degree from Virginia Tech.
