What I am all about.
I'm Jorge Dorantes. I love to see how technology, whether is a simple transatlantic Video-Chat with your partner, thinking about Electric Self-Driving Cars or just a simple micro piece of hardware inserted into your body, can make us tremendously productive. It is the Mystery of where and how the technology is guiding us that Indeed Fascinates Me!.
Besides fascination, I have an odd attachment to learn and share my knowledge within the ecosystem I belong to, "helping others" can even be my favorite social tool to break the ice among the TeamWork I have around. I think the Internet helped us little by little to create a flat world since late 1990's till now. I mean, globalize one and only one ecosystem with the same likes, with the same taste, with the same all in one powerful learning source (The World Wide Web). Therefore, I think data is clearly the new oil and has to be treated, absorbed and digested properly.
Well, well... After I described my personal opinion and the love I have towards technology and the importance of Data in a nutshell, I will talk a bit about my Professional Background.
So far I have over 15+ years of overall Networking experience working on Enterprise/Data IP Core and Data Center Technologies of different Industries such as Banking Finances services, Manufacturer services, Health Care services. All inimaginable sizes and challenges. I could say that improving my personal leadership, constant IT development & pushing myself to rotate in different Industries, has been the most powerful troubleshooting life toolkit I've ever applied in my career. Is interesting to see and understand how different business and Industries align their IT department and Networking needs based on their specific dependencies and necessities. In the end, IT (Data IP) is going to be the backbone path to interconnect any Industry Business and Systems Model. I want to clarify that working in one Industry forever can also be such an amazing experience getting an exceptional learning curve. Perspectives may differ I guess.
Gracefully changing the Subject to talk about Networking, the truth is that lately the Infrastructure as Code wisdom from the cloud taken to on-prem, Centralizing control planes by using Software Defined Networking solutions, the high demanding of a healthy L2/L3 loop-free underlay and amazing Networking transport Overlays trends out there just turned me crazy! In a good way. I mean, a Network Engineer has to be redefined and manage to any Multi-Cloud / on-rem flexibility situation. Adding cool features such as Analytics, Automation for the Operation, Observability, Telemetry, Data Science, Big Data, Machine Learning, etc, will be the main key differentiator for any service Industry in the upcoming decade and believe it or not, as an Network Security (Infrastructure) Engineer, you are going to find joy operating, implementing, configuring, designing, deploying and programming all that new things (just Pythonize, Terraform, Ansible it)!.
Speaking about my professional background, I have been putting quite some time gathering valuable info experience to set up properly my own metrics and my professional KPIs. I fragmented down below and summarized my top 7 IT KPIs measured since the experience I got in early 2007 until the current year 2022. FYI, my highest 98% comes from my justified CCIE Routing Switching on Enterprise and Data Center Architectures, my 15+years of experience moving all the way down to centralized Control Plane SDx SDDC design, Multicloud, NetOps, Site Reliability experience, ITIL, ITSM Frameworks and other Interesting agile IT KPIs I absorbed on the way...
