Delta provides of alert, an on-demand management solution that automates and enforces food safety compliance. alert aims to empower food companies to ship safe products faster and prevent unsafe foods from reaching the marketplace.

"One reason alert performs so well is that we integrate with the complex food industry on a completely practical level," says Bill Pappas, chief executive officer for Delta Technology & Software. "That requires leadership from people who have been in the trenches. Keith has tackled the very problems we're able to solve, and he brings us a wealth of hard-won insight and real world knowledge."

Morrow manages his consulting firm, K. Morrow Associates. It provides strategic technology advisory services for enterprise organizations in the areas of IT effectiveness, technology transformation and e-commerce strategy.

He was inducted into the CIO magazine CIO Hall of Fame in 2008. Texas Governor Rick Perry has appointed Morrow to three terms on the state's Department of Information Resources governing board.

"There's no question it's time for a new standard in food safety automation and enforcement," says Morrow. "Based on everything I've seen in the industry, I'm confident alert is the answer, and I'm very gratified to be able to play a part in rolling it out to a wider audience."
