Francesco Corti

Content Management and

Business Intelligence Specialist

Florence – Italy

Enthusiast Consultant in software and solutions, I love working in team with Developers, Sales and Customers. Proud of the role of Software Engineer, I’m often involved in Presale presentations, public speaking and IT courses.

Developing software, designing architectures and definition of solutions in ECM/BPM and BI are my favourites areas of interest. Dozens of projects done, from the very small ones to the more complexes, in almost 20 years of experience.

Product Manager at Alfresco, and before Product Evangelist, I’m one of the public figures representing the famous Open Source Content and Process Platform into the developer eco-system of Customers, Partners and enthusiasts. In addition to helping developers to adopt Alfresco technologies, I usually help Alfresco to improve the developer experience through talks, articles, blogging, user demonstrations, recorded demonstrations, or the creation of sample projects. Since October 2018 I’m involved in the definition of roadmaps, user stories at different levels, and I work with the development teams to implement solutions and products accordingly to customer needs.
