Since taking on his new role as technical director for DISA’s Hosting and Compute Center (HaCC) in February, Korie Seville has not had one boring day on the job.
Seville came to DISA seven years ago and has been with HaCC since the organization was formed in October 2021. HaCC's mission is to provide the warfighter with best-value hosting and compute solutions to achieve mission success.
Prior to his current job, Seville was an engineer working on the HaCC Product Management Team. As the technical director, Seville is responsible for creating, enabling and executing the technical strategy of the center. He collaborates with industry partners and the technical directors in DISA’s three other centers to ensure HaCC is aligned with and supports the director's strategic objectives.
“HaCC offers me the ability to tackle some of the most unique challenges DOD has to offer from an IT perspective,” Seville said. “My goals are to drive innovation through Agile development methodologies and transform how we operate to match industry standards. I want to engage in true partnership with industry and take a hard look at existing services and see where we can innovate and modernize.”
A typical day for Seville includes attending strategy meetings, helping to solve technical issues, and overseeing various projects within HaCC.
“I enjoy the new challenges that the job brings each day,” he said. “Enabling the warfighter to succeed and providing DOD with cutting-edge hosting and compute capabilities creates many unique challenges that are rarely experienced in any other environment. There’s never a boring day on this job.”
Seville said he is currently focused on integrating cutting-edge technology into existing infrastructure, keeping pace with evolving technology that’s forcing policy and procedure changes, and elevating workforce knowledge and skills to respond to the ever-changing technical landscape.
“By combining increased training and on-the-job learning opportunities with continual and constant collaboration with policy makers, security experts, industry partners, and innovation leaders, I believe we can marry policy and technical innovation to create a cohesive, technical environment capable of adapting to the changing technical landscape.”
