I am a senior IT professional, and I have been working at IBM Argentina since 2008 until April 2016. I started my career as a backup operator, and after a year I moved to the implementations area. By the 2011, I was ascended to administrator, and since then I have been consolidating my knowledge as Administrator and Deployer of backup & restore solutions. I like to share and acquire new knowledge, and to face new challenges.
