Episode 3 of InformationWeek's Expert Voice features Vimal Thomas, CIO of Yamaha Corporation of America, who talks about how he's built a safe, secure mobile infrastructure.

In this episode of InformationWeek's Expert Voice, we bring you a telephone conversation with Vimal Thomas, CIO of famed musical instrument company Yamaha Corporation of America. He talks about the information architecture that he manages at Yamaha and the unique challenges of bringing computing services to a creative user population.

Thomas would like to see an equipment-free infrastructure at Yamaha, but there are obviously issues to be addressed before going fully cloud-based. Control, governance, and security are issues that he's had to address and continues to address in the evolving architecture.

With about 450 employees in the US, Yamaha Corporation of America isn't a huge organization from a headcount point of view, but the applications and issues it works with are common to companies small and large. Thomas talked about the kind of applications he has in place and what it has taken to create a stable environment.

There are key takeaways for any IT executive interested in keeping mobile users productive and keeping mobile data secure.
