By Namitha K posted Tue January 16, 2024 03:21 AM


Meet Mauro Sanfilippo, who is the CTO and GM at smeup, and he has been a Champion since 2022. He loves IBM Power, especially for its reliability. He says, “For us, as ISV, it's the ultimate platform to rely on for providing enterprise-level applications with full computational power, reliability and support”.

Mauro’s favourite type of advocacy is Speaking and video-making. He believes that Sharing what you know is the only way to to make ideas and solutions evolve faster, the only way to "stack" the knowledge of everyone and create new knowledge. Like Newton said- If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants”.

Mauro has an enriched career and many accomplishments. He is very proud of the work that have done for modernizing and moving thier applications from a legacy and monolithic environment to Open Shift on Power without rewriting it.  If he weren’t a part of the technology world, he would have been an History researcher. He adds, “I think history is the mother of all human sciences!”.

Meet Mauro in person at IBM TechXchange Summit EMEA where he will be presenting on “A serverless application on OpenShift that also runs RPG and Cobol, alongside new languages”.  He is also planning to attend the Codemotion Conference and CEC 2024.
