Fort Lauderdale, FL, October 17, 2016. —Microsoft Latin America has named Fabio Scopeta as leader of the DX (Developer Experience) division, which is devoted to helping IT professionals, developers, students, entrepreneurs, and software providers create innovative applications with Microsoft’s platforms.
In his new position, Fabio is in charge of fostering an innovative environment that allows for continuous learning and the delivery of novel technological products in the ecosystem where application developers live together with users and their experiences.
“I will serve our partners in Latin America to ensure success in bringing valuable applications and services to both consumers and enterprises, across all devices,” Fabio mentions.
Before joining Microsoft Latin America, Fabio held a number of different positions at IBM, among which, it’s worth mentioning his role leading the IBM Watson Platform and IBM Watson Health business units in Latin America, for which he carried out activities related to business development, sales, strategic alliances, and the creation of new products with the objective of transforming multiple industries.
Furthermore, directing IBM’s software laboratory in Brazil, he steered the division toward growth based on a high performance and innovative environment. He earned the following recognitions with his work during this period: the World Wide Leadership Development Award, the Innovation that Matters Award, and the Think Innovation Award.
Fabio Scopeta’s career in the technological industry has made him a professional who is focused on spreading knowledge about specialized topics such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, applied health technology—the current DX leader was recognized with two noteworthy industry awards in this area: The 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare and The Top Professionals in Healthcare—, as well as cognitive and cloud computing.
Fabio’s knowledge will be key to lead and take developers, startups, IT professionals and independent software vendors to digital transformation, which is a current challenge for every industry and organization. This digital transformation will be supported by cutting edge technologies to drive intelligence to everything people do. Some of these technologies like Cortana Intelligence Suite and Microsoft Cognitive Services enable organizations to know what their clients expect through advanced analytics, and at the same time, operate in safe platforms.
“I am very passionate about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its potential to transform our world. I believe the best way to democratize AI so that each of us may accomplish more is through a robust cloud platform, and Microsoft is ideally positioned to lead that transformation. Azure and Cortana are incredibly advanced and elegant technologies. Microsoft is both a consumer and an enterprise player, which gives us unlimited potential for creation. Moreover, we have some of the best talent in the industry to accomplish our mission. I’m thrilled to have joined such a fantastic team,” Fabio says.
Fabio holds a degree in Administration from the University of Sao Paulo and has studied technology at the Department of Technology at FATEC in Sao Paulo. In addition, he holds a Master of Business from the University of California and the Getúlio Vargas Foundation.
