Ignacio Alonso Delgado

My career

I worked 👨‍💻 at IBM for over 10 years, now working at the spin-off called Kyndryl. I am passionate about the technical world, but I try not to lose the business view.

Currently I'm an Enterprise Chief Architect in an outsourcing contract, serving to an international Telco company. I manage infrastructure architectures which includes: Data Centers architectures, Networking, Compute and Storage. I work with DCs on-prem, where together with the account team, I have designed and built a private cloud based on Red Hat OpenStack, Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat Virtualization and Ceph, among other projects. I also work with public clouds as AWS and IBM Cloud. Currently I'm working on process and tasks automation with solutions like Ansible.

I have had different roles in my life: analytics specialist, big data specialist, and natural language processing specialist. I also worked with IBM Watson solutions (creating chatbots, understanding documents with IA, training watson machine learning models, etc). I cover the SPGI market (Spain, Portugal, Greece and Israel).

I belong to the Association of Enterpise Architects (chapter of Spain), where I help as a member.

I'm one of the organizers of the Meetup called Big Data Developers in Madrid, with more than 4250 members.
