Hi, I'm Dante!


I am a friendly and positive person who is known for my bubbly attitude, desire to help others, and to never shy away from a challenge. I'm often seen as a mentor, a subject matter expert, and someone that my colleagues and customers can count on. I believe that bettering your peers betters yourself.

I spent the last few years working as a support engineer for a company called Evanios that specializes in IT Event Management software. Evanios was acquired by HP Inc and since then I've split my time between supporting the legacy Evanios product and working on new and exciting technologies at HP such as DaaS (device as a service), TechPulse, and development on our ServiceNow instance. These technologies are installed on millions of computers world-wide and provide amazing insights to a company's IT organization.

HP TechPulse ITSM Team

As a member of the TechPulse ITSM team I assist internal teams bring their products and ideas into ServiceNow to take advantage of all of the features that the ServiceNow ecosystem has to offer. Notable projects I've worked on include:

  • Designed and implemented a self-service knowledge management process that allowed technical writers to work with subject matter experts to author knowledge, provide translation teams the ability to translate documentation into multiple languages, and pass approval to product stakeholders before becoming public. This allowed HP to deliver TechPulse knowledge via ServiceNow.

  • Customer onboarding and customer service management workflow creation to automatically detect and onboard new HP customers into ServiceNow. This resulted in an increased ability to provide customer and end-user support.

  • Utilizing knowledge of IT infrastructure monitoring I built out an operations monitoring solution for HP Advanced Endpoint Management's internal infrastructure. Featuring automatic incident generation, routing, and configurable alerts to quickly notify teams of outages and degradations this resulted in a reduction in outage time and an increase in customer satisfaction.

  • Ideation and Demand Management at HP. I helped to design, implement, and pilot an ideation funnel at HP used to allow employees to suggest new ideas, products, and features and then to move ideas to actual solutions.

Station Trainer

Education

Bachelors of Science in Information Technology

GRADUATED 2014

I worked a full time job to support myself and pay for college without any help from parents. I was really fortunate that my schedule at the airport was flexible enough to accommodate full time work and my education. It wasn't easy though, I busted my butt doing both at the same time. In college I was known as the note taker. I opened my notes up to my fellow classmates online so if someone wanted to supplement their notes or missed a class they could always look at mine. After a while, professors started teaching the courses directly to me. My colleagues would come to me with questions when they were afraid to ask the professors. My belief that sharing what you know continues today in my career.
