Gabriel Dragan, Senior Storage Engineer
Gabriel is the type of professional with inspiring energy and optimism. Shaping the Storage Team in Romania from the very beginning was a challenge that still brings him satisfaction, as he sees how the department has grown and the way it is now integrated with the Data Management Storage Team.
"Why Storage Engineer? Because the data is the most valuable asset of a customer. If a server breaks down, or if a network component is offline, there is a high business impact. But what about losing data? A storage engineer can make the difference in certain situations. I enjoy knowing that I have this ability to save the day and the customers enjoy the results."
"After 13+ years at one of the biggest world-wide IT companies, I’ve decided to take up a new challenge in Cegeka, where the Storage Team in Romania was at the very beginning. It’s so exciting to see, after years of hard work, how the team has grown and got integrated perfectly with Cegeka’s Data Management Storage Team. My greatest satisfaction is seeing the people in my team grow. I am proud when I see them use the approaches they learned from me. What more can I ask for as a Senior and Mentor in a company?"
"In Cegeka the entrepreneurial spirit is palpable. It means a lot, because this freedom allowed me to achieve what might have seemed impossible. This gives us energy and enthusiasm, motivating us to be better as professionals (storage, automation etc.), mentors, humans. I am proud of my position as a Product Owner of the Storage Systems, within the Automation process. Here my aversion to repetitive tasks is put to the best use, as it motivates me to find ways of automating repetitive tasks that can further help users save time and resources."
