Nick Engelman is a business technologist with almost 30 years experience in the IT industry. He began his career as a ground-floor member of the Australian startup anti-virus company Cybec in the early 1990s. Following a stint in the US running CA Technologies global security ATG, he returned to Australia, broadening out from security to work across a range of technologies and industries, with a core focus on Telco and FSI.
Nick has a keen business focus and excels at liaising between the business and technical sides of an organisation. He is heartened by the current progress in machine learning, but still vividly remembers working on a self-tuning AI in the early 2000s, where his key issue was not lack of GPUs, but lack of data.
