Since a young age, John Thibeaux (pronounced Tebo) a.k.a. Tebo has been fascinated with how computers can improve the lives of humans. It was this desire that prompted Tebo to study technology at the University of Houston.  After working technology internships, Tebo realized that technological knowledge is most powerful when coupled with business knowledge and studied entrepreneurship and Information Systems Technology at the University of Houston. In 2005, John received a B.S. in Information Systems and a Certificate in Entrepreneurship.


Upon graduation, Tebo went to work for the Chevron Corporation as an application developer, where he developed different types of .net applications. At the same time, Tebo completed an M.B.A. at the University of Phoenix in 2007. In 2007, Tebo then became an Information Management Analyst for the Chevron Global Gas group. In this job, Tebo learned more about the gas business, and developed expertise in Microsoft SharePoint. In 2009, Tebo started working in his current position in Global Gas Architecture group as a Project Manager/Business Analyst where he worked on technology strategy, innovation lab, and SharePoint deployment. Tebo is currently pursuing a Doctor of Management in Information Systems from the University of Phoenix

Full Description

John Thibeaux, Project Manager in Chevron Global Gas will be discussing the Chevron Pipeline Field Mobility Innovation Lab Project. This project brought together the expertise and skills of Chevron's partners to demonstrate the usefulness of mobile technology for the Chevron Pipeline Company. Chevron's  pipeline field workers work in very remote locations and are often disconnected from network information systems. This project developed  a solution that enabled such workers to manage workflow tasks and safe work permitting processes and tap into corporate networks using hand held devices linked via 3 g networks, and interact with corporate maintenance ERP systems  and other work planning enterprise systems, and submit permit applications with photos to the proper approvers at field offices. This project  integrated Microsoft SharePoint, Formotus (InfoPath Forms on the Client), SAP Plant Maintenance, and Windows Mobile Devices. The project was a partnership between Microsoft, SAP, and LTI.
