How did you get started? 

"I am lucky my profession which is my passion, still gives me joy and satisfaction many years later.

“It is difficult to summarize my career briefly. I have always been a person with technical skills. My adventure with computer technology began when, as a young engineer specializing in designing drives control electric motors, I started using a computer as a tool for my design work. I have developed a strong interest in computers and my passion has begun...

“Over the years I have expanded my skills in different areas of the IT industry. I started my IT career as a service engineer specialising in servers and storage systems and progressed into the presales, technical support and implementation engineer in this regard. For a certain period, I also ran technical trainings covering technical architecture, installation and commissioning of server / storage systems (among others as a certified instructor in Compaq).

“Gradually, I began to deal with the design of complex solutions in the area of IT Infrastructure. In the meantime, there was also a variety of work in managerial positions, but the work as an engineer and solution architect gives me the greatest satisfaction.

“My experience with HPE solutions dates back to the pre-merger Compaq and HP. I'm from the ‘Compaq branch’.

“My whole career would not have been possible without continuously advancing my knowledge. ASE/Master ASE certifications are part of this process. Certifications do not only provide satisfaction but also access to additional industry knowledge, software tools and training offers."

What do you see the benefits of being a Master ASE?

"The knowledge combined with practical experience I have gathered on the way to my individual ASE/Master ASE certifications, allows me to deliver comprehensive and modern solutions tailored to my clients’ expectations and needs. ASE/Master ASE certifications are a quality mark for a knowledgeable and trusted advisor of HPE products and solutions. Achieving these certifications provide me access to additional tools and programs offered by HPE as a support for certified engineers which is very helpful at my daily job. My company once again gained the status of the HPE Platinum Partner. My ASE/Master ASE certifications are a part of the process of maintaining this status for 2017."

What is your favourite HPE technology?

"Today it is difficult to talk about just one favourite product. There are some products which I use more often than others, for example BladeSystems, 3PAR StoreServe Storage, StoreOnce deduplication devices. This is because of their functional futures, quality and wide range of compatibility matrix. Based just on these few products, it is possible to build the right solutions for my customers, customized to their different needs and expectations. Currently I’m excited about HPE Synergy platform which I really believe to be the next step to build a future-proof Data Center, ready for today’s workloads and tomorrow’s changes."

Any interesting customer stories you would like to share?

"In my company I’m specialized in designing solutions based on HPE solutions, utilizing knowledge I have gained from HPE. Just a few months ago one of my customers wanted to implement HPE storage solution for their VMware virtualized platform and Windows based database clusters. He was looking for a solution that would combine respectable technical references and reasonable pricing. I proposed 3PAR Peer Persistent solution based on his 3PAR StoreServ 7200 system and a new 3PAR StoreServ 8200. The customer accepted the solution I prepared for him and a few weeks later this solution was successfully implemented at customer’s site."

What's your tip for other women interested in technology?

"In my opinion, the most important tip is professionalism. If you are interested in technology, if you are ready to work hard and build your professionalism, ASE/Master ASE certifications will be the perfect complement. HPE Partner Ready Certification and Learning program can open doors by providing you and your team with the most sought-after IT skills and knowledge. I definitely recommend it. So determine your career path based on the role you play or want to play and take the necessary steps to acquire the right HPE certifications."
