Frank has spent just over 20 years working as a Senior Software Engineer, Principal Sales Engineer, Solutions Architect, and Principal Consultant, helping the most innovative companies develop world class products and solutions. Frank started his career with Cognos, who was a prominent BI vendor in the early 2000s. During his post-sales roles, Frank’s focus was around leveraging Cognos’ Web Services and SOAP based APIs to perform sophisticated integrations with disparate systems to achieve fluidity around Reporting, Analytics, SSO, and Custom Identity Provider Solutions. After IBMs acquisition of Cognos in 2008, Frank continued his work as a Team Lead with IBM’s Technical Expert Services organization. In 2014, Frank took a role as a Senior Advisory Software Engineer within IBM, to better focus on the more technical aspects of IBMs products and solutions. Most recently, Frank joined Sonatype just this past August, where he has been able to hone his ‘chops’ around Software Supply Chain management, remediation, and solution implementations.
