His innovations include the design and implementation of IBM’s first cloud offering called SmartCloud Enterprise, the CDE for (now retired) General Gregory Touhill at USTRANSCOM, and, most recently, the inception and implementation of Lumen Edge Cloud. During his tenure at Lumen, he served as a founding architect for Lumen’s Edge platform. He and three colleagues devised ways to put environment tolerant compute at every stop from last mile, through internet backbone on a global scale. This diversity of compute and scale required novel solutions to support a myriad of usecases. Moss’s innovations to solve for those usecases brought about novel ways to compose hardware, intelligently reroute network traffic, and incorporate AI into Operations; (as well as multiple other pending patents).

“has been a formidable leader when it comes to overcoming challenges and fixing issues within teams”

Moreover, his extensive experience spans multiple industries, from finance to healthcare, and he has worked with some of the world’s largest deployments. His philosophy of rational spending, knowledge building, and rightsizing solutions is highly effective in keeping projects on track and delivering value to clients. He is as comfortable in engineering pits as he is in board rooms and is known for his ability to relate complex ideas with ease.

Over his career, his work has been entrusted with brand responsibility by the likes of IBM, AT&T, Lumen and SPAWAR. Moss’s contributions in his field have reached not just governments and enterprises, but also into households across the world by designing infrastructure used by companies such as Amazon, AT&T, Zoom, and Subaru.
