Luis is an expert in SOA and also is a thought leader in this field. Having always had a natural talent for software, computers, and engineering in general, Luis's career in software started from an early age. Even before starting university, Luis's entrepreneurial spirit led him to start several ventures including the very first social media website in his country of origin (Venezuela) as well as a small software development firm. Although none of these ventures turned into a multi-million corporation, the experience and knowledge gained during this period led him to develop the passion for distributed software computing which inevitably led to SOA.
Luis is widely considered as a leader in the SOA/BPM field. In an effort to share his real-life experiences when implementing complex SOA solutions, Luis has written his first book, Oracle SOA Governance 11g Implementation, published by Packt Publishing.
