I was born in Rome in 1963, I graduated in Electronic Engineering and specialized in Industrial Safety at the Faculty of Engineering of La Sapienza. I have been involved in Business Intelligence and Performance Management since 1988, working for years at international level as project manager in Space, Defence, Telco in UK, The Netherlands, Spain, Germany.
Back in Italy in 1998, I led the development of important Business Intelligence projects, first of all Customer Profiling for Telecom Italia Mobile, and then I took the responsibility of the Oracle BI & Data Warehouse Practice for Italy, making it a successful case in the Oracle international panorama.
In 2006 I became in Oracle responsible for consulting for the EMEA market of BI & Data Warehouse solutions and then, in 2009 – after the acquisition Hyperion, a well-known Enterprise Performance Management tool – I was responsible in Western Europe for the Product Line Hyperion in Consulting.
From 2010 to 2015 I was Oracle Country Leader Business Analytics for Italy.
In 2013 I started to create, together with Prof. Giuseppe Ragusa, the concept of the Master in Big Data Analytics for LUISS Business School. The master, operational since 2014, was the first Master in Italy on Data Science topics. I then spread the importance of Big Data and Analytics in various Masters within LBS (from MBA to Master in HR, Tourism, Marketing Management, Digital Export, etc.), creating a specific Master in Big Data Management for professionals.
Since 2016 I have been working in Iconsulting, a company specialized in Big Data and Analytics, as Innovation Director and head of the Rome office.
During the last year I worked, together with Damien Lanfrey and Donatella Solda, on launching DASI. The spirit that animated us was to bring innovation in digital training and Data Science, going beyond pure technological skills.
In this way we offer students a path that makes them professionally effective and with the necessary tools to generate business and/or social impact through the design and implementation of data centric solutions.
