)-- International training and consulting firm Solid Quality Mentors, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, is excited to welcome Antonio Laloumet as Global Director of Cloud Computing and Strategic Sales & Solutions.
Antonio joins SolidQ after working the past 5 years in the Microsoft Server & Tools Unit, where his main objective was helping organizations build solutions based on the Microsoft Application Platform. Before that, he spent 15 years at Oracle serving as manager of Server Technologies and, later, manager of Middleware Technologies. Backed by more than 30 years of IT experience working at such companies as Unisys and Philips Communications and Data Systems, Antonio has specialized primarily in database tuning and benchmarking and ensuring security and information privacy.
“We are thrilled to have Antonio leading a team of Cloud Technical Champions, carefully selected from among the best SolidQ expert mentors we have worldwide,” says Fernando G. Guerrero, Global CEO of SolidQ and a Microsoft Regional Director. “Through his role at Microsoft, Antonio has been dealing with the largest corporate customers in Spain, LATAM, and Western Europe. We look forward to having him work closely with our local sales teams to make sure we leverage our skills in all regions and address customers’ business and technology needs appropriately.”
Antonio’s rich background includes serving as team leader in the areas of database and middleware, where he coordinated teams of highly specialized engineers; working as an application design and development consultant; and serving as a professor of computer science. He has represented Microsoft and Oracle as a speaker at business and technology events and has collaborated with several committees related to system and database architectures. In addition, he co-authored a book introducing computing to primary and high school students.
"I'm really looking forward to working with the great folks at SolidQ,” Antonio notes. “I've known some of the founders and mentors even before the company was created, and I’ve had the opportunity to work with them on several successful projects during my time with Microsoft. I’m especially excited to lead SolidQ’s cloud computing initiatives and help customers succeed in this new area. I think the cloud represents great opportunities for IT organizations, and SolidQ is ready to hit the ground running with practical, innovative solutions."
