Passion for Mobile Solutions design

I am a passionate technology entrepreneur with a die-hard positive attitude that can not stay still. As technology either, we make a good team.

I am confident about the great potential of Smart Card technologies for the development of new services related to Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet-of-Things (IoT). I am passionate about the creative exercise of transforming raw technologies into easy to use and quickly to adopt services with compelling user experiences.

In 2008 I founded MOVASIM, focused on delivering Smart Cards Solutions for the mass market. Since then, we have installed several Solutions around the globe, and as of 2016, MOVASIM is part of the Valid Group. Valid is a global technology provider for identification, data, mobile and financial markets. Headquartered in Brazil, the company delivers and operates integrated and personalized secure solutions to governmental and privately-owned organizations around the world, for mobile networks connectivity, financial transactions, digital signature, personal identification and secured data management.

Besides, from guillermodidonato.com I do consulting for companies in areas like Mobile Solutions Design and Marketing . For me this is an open and enriching channel to collaborate with new people in special projects.

Previously I worked as Solutions Marketing & Sales Manager for Giesecke & Devrient (G&D), one of the leading Smart Cards manufacturers, covering LATAM Market.

Before I worked in GEMALTO as Solutions Manager Coordinator for the South Cone (Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay and Bolivia) leading an excellent team of professionals focused on promoting Software Solutions and Value-Added Services (SVA) for Mobile Telecom Operators.

I participated in a large number of projects for almost all Mobile Operators in the region, integrating Corporate Platforms into their networks, with services like SIM Card Agenda Backup (ADN), Remote Update Campaigns (OTA), SIM Browsing Services (S@T), Dynamic SIM Toolkit Administration (DSTK) and Handset configuration Campaigns (Device Management).

In addition to projects with Corporate Service Platforms, I designed and implemented a number of solutions customized to customer’s needs. Some of them later became part of the Corporate Portfolio .

GEMALTO was born in 2006 from AXALTO and GEMPLUS merge. Prior to the merger I worked at GEMPLUS as Solutions Manager for Latin America South, promoting Solutions and Services based on SIM Card technology. During this period, we won a lot of deals, positioning GEMPLUS as the regional leader in SIM Card based Solutions and Services.

Prior to joining GEMPLUS, and along with my Engineering Thesis director from Universidad Nacional de La Plata (UNLP), we created a Technology Startup focused on Software applications for small and medium size companies. Finally, it didn't take off, but I learned A LOT and we really had fun! I will always remember this nice Startup, full of adrenaline, knowledge, challenges, achievements and friendship.

In my very beginnings I worked in ERICSSON Canada as a Software Engineer in the TDMA Development and Support Radio Department, and in DUPONT Argentina as an Electronic Technician within their Instrumentation and Electric Maintenance Team, thanks to a scholarship given to me by DUPONT when finishing my Secondary School.

I run my Blog (http://blog.guillermodidonato.com/), where I write about technology, telecommunications, personal projects and general things that I feel worth sharing.

In my free time I enjoy reading books and blogs, doing some electronics projects, the outdoors and sharing good moments with good friends and family.
