After receiving a BS and MS in Computer Science from the Polytechnic University of Milan, Andrea was employed for some time in the information technology (IT) department of a large logistics and warehousing company. Andrea soon discovered that the nine-to-five life was rather dull for him; so, in search of more stimulating experiences, he established his own IT practice. At first he just helped small enterprises get started with IT, but soon this activity became more and more structured as a network of collaborations took shape, for example, on the academic side with AICA (Associazione Italiana Calcolo Automatico). Andreas collaborated with AICA in the establishment of the European e-Competence Framework, a reference to the competences needed in the information and communications technology (ICT) profession and a project developed on behalf of the European Union (EU).

Nowadays, with the ever-growing strategic role of ICT in companies of all sizes, Andrea’s practice has expanded into an established network of collaborators that offer advice and solutions on most aspects of enterprise ICT, from infrastructure design to application development to data husbandry, transforming the ICT infrastructure of his customers from an undefined assortment of almost casual activities to a structured driver for business value.

Andrea often lectures on these topics for enterprises and professional associations, as well as the general public. He has been a reviewer for Computing Reviews since 2004. He is currently working on transforming his experiences in the field into guidelines, for the establishment and evolution of a sound IT environment for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
