HPE cloud volumes eliminates cloud lock-in with a unified experience that enables clients to run applications anywhere, simplify data protection and unleash every cloud.
Lucio's specific Cybersecurity Interaction Design contribution:
Lucio delivered an AI-driven predictive analytics visualization directly integrated with the acclaimed “HPE infosight” tool. The Interactive visualization consisted in a timeline graph in the top right side of the NCV GUI that helped users monitor volume capacity, performance and security thresholds. This informed users with the right information to change their Data Protection settings, including capacity, performance and backup snapshots security in real time. The integration with Infosight and NCV was mentioned by Forbes as an unbeatable product opportunity.(Forbes Nim1,5) Furthermore, I believe that NCV aligned well with the HPE company mission as a whole of creating an AI-driven consistent user experience as mentioned in Forbes by HPE CEO (Forbes Nim2,2)
Lucio's main Interaction Design contribution details:
Lucio envisioned and delivered the Nimble Cloud Volume (NCV) creation User Experience. This included producing the interaction design wireframes that allowed users to pick the cloud preferred infrastructure, select the region where their data would be stored, and set up the security credentials through VPC. Moreover, the same User Interface (UI) allowed data capacity and performance setting. Finally, the UI allowed the users to set specific Data protection controls, including backup snapshot frequency, retention, and encryption. As mentioned by many media outlets, NCV was the first product in the field to have this kind of user experience. Lucio’s Interaction design became a key differentiator that was critical to quickly set this product apart from the HPE Nimble product portfolio as mentioned in this Forbes article (Forbes Nim1,6). Furthermore, Lucio’s new user experience was critical to make the features stand out and enabling features not achievable with any other native cloud available in the market, as mentioned as well in Forbes (Forbes Nim1,3) Zdnet highlighted that NCV was designed to run applications across clouds adding Data Protection features. (ZDNet Nim1,1).
Lucio delivered the multi-cloud NCV platform User Experience. His deliverables included the interaction designs of the NCV overview page, NCV details page, and the NCV cloud providers edit user experience. Lucio developed the User Interface designs so that users could browse their volumes pool, choose a desired volume and switch cloud providers with a simple and intuitive interaction without losing context of capacity, performance or security. This user experience was significant for the company as a whole because it made Nimble Cloud Volume for the first time a prime backup storage option for the storage market, and allowed users a great degree of flexibility avoiding public cloud vendor lock-in. Lucio’s User Experience contributed substantially to generate product reactions by field Journalists and Data Protection analysts. For example Forbes journalist Steve McDowell mentioned that one of the most fascinating aspects of NCV was that customers were allowed to treat an HPE Cloud Volume as a backup first-class citizen, and that it was a new mindset for the HPE cloud team (Forbes Nim2,1) IDC Data Protection Analyst Phil Goodwin mentioned that NCV is powerful because it allowed customers to converge backups from multiple clouds in one unified NCV regardless of different storage format vendors (TechTarget Nim1,1). Christophe Bertrand, a senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group Mentioned that "HPE Cloud Volumes provides a unified cloud destination for consolidating all your backup data in the HPE cloud. (Techtarget Nim1,2) Ashish Prakash, HPE vice-president and general manager of cloud data services, said: “Many customers would like to take advantage of the elasticity of cloud. But they are worried about lock-in with the public cloud providers.” (TechTarget Nim 2,1) again Forbes journalist Steve McDowell mentioned that NCV enhanced flexibility while switching cloud providers (Forbes Nim1,4) Finally, Matt Eastwood, Senior Vice President at IDC said” HPE Cloud Volume Backup enables customers to easily protect their data and applications in the cloud” and “This service allows customers to avoid public cloud lock-in”(HPE Nim1,1) I can state that all of the user experience callouts would not have been achieved without Lucio’s Interaction Designs.
Furthermore Lucio’s contribution to NCV was critical for the company as a whole for several reasons including: In 2017 NCV was considered a brand new Cloud Storage Service for Nimble Storage, (Bloomberg Nim2.1) NCV was one of the product that was kept alive by HPE (Forbes Nim1,2) NCV was acclaimed to have amazing potential that would give HPE opportunities to stand alone among its peers (Forbes Nim1,6). In 2018 NCV features stood out and couldn’t be achieved by any native cloud offerings available in the market, (Forbes Nim1,3) Furthermore NCV represented an anomaly from the typical HPE products’ line-up.(Forbes Nim 1,1).

Project Dimension, then renamed VMware Cloud on Dell EMC, is the VMware cloud service providing cloud-like user experience to data centers and edge locations. It is important to note that at its inception it was considered a completely new offering for VMware with the critical goal to deliver a new kind of user experience that could attract VMware Cloud customers with IoT and Edge use cases. Since VMware was a little late on the Edge computing service offering, it required an exceptional interaction design vision that provided a solid differentiator from the competition as well as simple design strategy to solve the heavy technological complexity, including the Built in Security features.
Lucio's specific Cybersecurity Interaction Design contribution details:
One of the most critical aspect of Project Dimension was the development of the interaction designs that would allow users to improve the security posture of their regionalized SDDC, such as avoiding data sovereignty, privacy, and regulatory issues. Lucio led the development of an immersive, single integrated user experience that ultimately allowed users to efficiently and transparently coordinate all the steps of the location settings to avoid data sovereignty, privacy and regulatory issues. This effort generated the GUI designs that allowed users the flexibility to create SDDC in the proper region with the option of setting a more secure private cloud. The implementation of this user experience was particularly critical because it allowed VMware and Dell customers to keep data physically within certain geographies and thereby guaranteeing data security and avoiding privacy and regulatory issues, all of which dramatically improve cybersecurity. These accomplishments were significant for the company's success as a whole because they collectively increased the level of security provided to VMware and Dell customers, including helping them solve privacy and regulatory issues. The importance of those accomplishments are mentioned by C level executives in media articles including: VMware CEO stating that Project Dimension will “ help reduce operational complexity and save some money at the data center and edge, while delivering built-in security.” (Forbes VMw 2,1), Chris Wolf CTO, Global Field and Industry at VMware told media that VMware Cloud on Dell EMC is core to the Dell Technologies Cloud Data Center-as-a-Service solution” including that the offering has been shaped as providing “simple, more secure” infrastructure delivered as-a-service to customers' on-premises data center and edge locations. (ZDnet VMw 3.1) .Kit Colbert, VP and CTO of VMware's cloud platform business unit mentioned that VMware Cloud on Dell EMC aims to support the "need for on-premises infrastructure around things like data sovereignty and regulatory reasons for keeping data physically within certain geographies," (TechTarget VMw 3,1) Additionally, Project Dimension use cases were mentioned by Business Insider to be the next generation cloud VMware technology that have a validated design that integrates security features in the SDDC, such as disaster recovery. ( Business Insider 1,1).
Lucio's main Interaction Design contribution details:
Developing the UX Interaction Design was particularly complex because Project Dimension was a joint effort between Dell Technologies and VMware. Specifically, VMware was offering a Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) service while Dell hardware shipment and installation service. The two companies had different user experiences and provided different services requiring a single solution to integrate them seamlessly. Lucio ed the Interaction Design vision for Project Dimension, including the integration of the two user experiences in a unified solution. One of Lucio's most innovative accomplishments was the design of the interactive mapping visualization UI. The Interactive map allowed users to see all their software defined data center resources running in VMware cloud in one single map view. Once the Data Center was installed it will appear in the interactive map. Because of this design users would be able to check visual Performance and Security metrics key indicators through a simple dashboard UI. This user experience and UI design has never been designed before. These User Experiences had a significant impact for VMware business because they reduced the effort for customers to manage complexity allowing them to simply focus on running their businesses. This is highlighted in the video from June Yang here: (Project Dimension Video demo from VP of Product June Yang during VMworld Keynote 2018) As a result Lucio's user experience vision and GUI Interaction designs were presented by VMware C level executives during major conferences. Specifically, in a 2018 Forbes article highlighted how Project Dimension was part of VMware’s former CEO Pat Gelsinger “Lofty vision” to extend the benefits of VMware Cloud to the datacenter and out to the Edge. The same article mentioned VMware CEO unveiling and demoing the user experience of Project Dimension during the VMworld keynotes (Forbes VMw 2.1). In another article VMware’s CTO, Ray O'Farrell highlighted the exceptional capability of Project Dimension product UI to give “visibility” into what’s going on in the infrastructure by highlighting the problem across multiple clients locationsand stretching the infrastructure to the Edge(Networkworld VMw 1,2). These user experiences were made possible through the interaction design of Lucio’s vision and his team execution. A screenshot of Lucio’s mapping visualization was published in ZDnet (ZDnet VMw 2,2). Project Dimension was unveiled during the VMworld USA General Session Keynote as one of the five innovative technologies in 2018, as mentioned in the VMware press release,(VMware VMw 1,1). And again mentioned in Bloomberg press release during VMworld Europe as one of the two core VMware breakthrough products of 2018 (Bloomberg VMw 1,1).
The User Experience and Interaction Design conducted by Lucio dramatically simplified the complexities of selecting and deploying a software defined datacenter (SDDC). Lucio envisioned that from the central datacenter location map visualization users could directly order a brand new software defined data center with a simple click of a button. This will prompt a simple interaction design modal that allows clients to select a cloud infrastructure, a location, and specifications for new data centers. Finally, the design included a simple ordering status stepper visualization to help users follow the ordering and installation process. This UX was critical because it allowed clients to order and install a fully functional software defined data centers in multiple locations in a matter of hours through one UI that served both Dell Technologies and VMware services. Lucio led the UX team in the cross-functional effort involving UX designers, Engineers and PMs to align the user experience and design execution, through many meetings and presentations. These accomplishments were particularly significant for the company's success as a whole because this single user experience consistently solidified the integration between Dell Technologies and VMware. As a result Dell launched a specific product “VMware Cloud on Dell EMC '' using Project Dimension’s User Experience Interaction Design and announced it at the 2019 Dell Technology World Annual Conference as mentioned by ZDnet (ZDnet VMw 3,1), and CNR (CNR VMw 2,1). Furthermore, ZDnet mentioned that VMware Cloud on Dell EMC was designed for companies running their own data centers, but wanted a cloud operating model. The statement included that Dell Technologies data center as a service effort was built on “Project Dimension” (ZDnet VMw 2,1). Ultimately, to highlight the importance of Project Dimension for VMware and Dell vision, Forbes mentioned that the growing complexity of the edge was a challenge that extended beyond VMware to the greater Dell Technologies organization, including that both Michael Dell, Chairman and CEO of Dell Technologies mentioned that the “edge use case is growing quite rapidly, and Pat Gelsinger VMware former CEO mentioned that “Project Dimension brings ‘as-a-Service’ benefits on-premises, bringing them from the cloud to on-premises and to the edge.”(Forbes VMw 1,1) Project Dimension achieved worldwide success and exposure in August 2018 while presented by VMware C level executives on the VMworld annual conference keynotes in front of 30k attendees. This success has been reflected through widespread attention by many renowned media outlets, including SiliconAngle, Bloomberg, Forbes, and ZDnet.
Project Dimension launched in 2018 is still today the most critical VMware data center managed services focused on edge locations. VMware Project Dimension was a key service because it combined the simplicity and agility of public cloud with the security and control of on-premises infrastructure with a fully-managed hybrid cloud platform. This was one of the most relevant projects for VMware in 2018 as it was the first-to-market Dell Technologies Cloud Data Center As-A-Service offering as mentioned in CNR (CNR VMw 1,1). In 2018 Forbes mentioned that with Project Dimension VMware wanted to extend their strategy from the Data Center, to the Cloud, and to the Edge. As a supporting argument the article cited VMware’s CEO mentioning Project Dimension to bring Service cloud benefits to on-premises (Forbes VMw 1,1) .It was clear that Project Dimension was a key strategy for VMware as a whole. Project dimension/VMC on Dell weren’t only significant for VMware as a whole but also for Dell Technology. In 2019 ZDnet published that Dell's CEO during Dell Technologies World mentioned that "A big part of VMware's success is, yes, its integration with Dell Technologies.VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger echoed similar sentiments, saying the VMware of the future is one under the Dell Technologies stack. (ZDnet VMw 6,1)

Sysdig Secure is still today the cybersecurity product offered by Sysdig. Specifically, Sysdig Secure is a software platform that empowers organizations in securing cloud services including detecting and responding to cyber threats.
Lucio's specific Cybersecurity Interaction Design contribution details:
Lucio was assigned by the executive team to coordinate both Product and UX and deliver final UX/UI designs, his responsibilities included accomplish the following core tasks: Leading the design development of the Runtime Vulnerability Scanning UI This task encompassed team coordination and the design deliverable of tools to reduce security incidents due to misconfigurations or vulnerabilities not discovered in a timely fashion. The goal of the task was to create tools to enable ccutomers’s security teams to prioritize vulnerabilities and confirm that configurations are compliant with security regulations. Lucio led the UX team and the User Experience design to Identify vulnerabilities faster and earlier and enable customers to validate software infrastructure configurations and image attributes from the runtime tab in a timely manner. As a first accomplishment he delivered a UI design that displayed the infrastructure assets in an interactive list using an intuitive visualization that highlighted the severity level from high or greater for each vulnerability. Another accomplishment was the introduction of a visual key indicator to aggregate the vulnerability level across the infrastructure. The evidence that the feature’s User Experience was critical for the company as a whole can be found in the following callouts: In Nov 2019 has been highlighted by Sysdig CEO in an Forbes article that the majority of cyber breaches, are due to misconfigurations or vulnerabilities not discovered in a timely fashion, and that “the scale, complexity and elasticity of these environments require tools that enable teams to prioritize vulnerabilities”. (Forbes Sys 1,1) In Nov 2020, Vulnerability scanning was one of the core features of the integration between the Sysdig and IBM platform, indicated as a runtime scanning methodology to save time and to block threats. “vulnerability Scanning” feature’s description and GUI screenshot has been highlighted in the IBM blog article (IBM Sys 1,3). In March 2020, in Forbes articles, Sysdig CEO mentioned “scan for vulnerability” as a “Key priority” for helping customers to ”identify vulnerabilities faster and earlier” including securing them” against runtime threats and attacks” (Forbes Sys 3,1), Furthermore, later on in 2021 he mentioned that “Image vulnerability Scanning” has become one of the top trend in the security industry and a security best practice for DevOps. (Forbes Sys 5,1). These callouts strongly relate to the significance of Lucio’s Sysdig User Experience for the company as a whole, because Secure Runtime Vulnerability scanning GUI design addressed exactly the criticality mentioned in the articles.
Leading the design development of the regulatory compliance UI This task involved leading the Sysdig Secure cross functional team and delivering a user experience to support clients in reducing increasingly enforcing onerous financial penalties for failure to comply with security regulatory requirements when deploying software in the cloud.
Lucio led the development of the UI design for the compliance visibility dashboard that provided customers with compliance indicators, including detailed remediation information, and compliance records for reporting. As a first accomplishment Lucio delivered a GUI design that highlighted assets not compliant with regulatory standards. This included an easy to use visualization that listed the failed steps and the reccomended remediation. The second accomplishment was the design of a unified UI overview to better keep track and measure the compliance progress. Sysdig CEO addresses the criticality of this feature in three Forbes’ articles. First he indicated the significance to adopt compliance tools for any organization working on cloud security, therefore he implied the importance for Sysdig as a whole as a provider of these tools. Specifically, in the 2019 Forbes’ article he mentioned that to have a secure approach for Development Operation teams it is critical to upfront compliance validation with tools which provide compliance policies checks, noncompliance alerts, detailed remediation information, and compliance records for reporting. (Forbes Sys 1,2)In March 2020, he mentioned that one of the key priorities for Chief Information Security Officers (CISO) is to take care of “validating compliance” including “mapping each regulation'' and processing policy compliance “checks” during the build phase of the software development life cycle. (Forbes Sys 3,2) In June 2020, he mentioned that to move more successfully to the cloud, reduce security risks, and minimize delays in deployment, organizations will need to run and automate compliance checks. (Forbes Sys 2,1). These callouts strongly relate to the significance of Lucio’s Sysdig Secure compliance GUI design and User Experience for the company as a whole, because they addressed exactly the priorities mentioned in the articles. Finally, in the IBM article it is highlighted with a description of the User Experience and the representation of the GUI screenshot how Sysdig Secure compliance UI provided an out-of-the-box solution to verify compliance and a unified overview to better measure compliance progress. (IBM Sys 1,4).
Leading the development of the cybersecurity activity audit UI. This task pertained to the development of the User Experience and UI design for a forensic analysis tool to support clients to understand and contain the impact of any security breach, respond to incidents, and recover and conduct post-mortem analysis on data that may no longer be available.
Lucio led the user experience and interaction design development of Activity Audit user experience including the execution of the GUI that displays the data activities dynamic list, the filter UI, and the timeline Graph highlighting the activity for each data source selected. His design introduced a special Interactive timeline visualization that would allow users to inspect and filter thousands of data in a few clicks providing quickly cybersecurity incident details. His UI design has been critical for Sysdig’s customers to determine which user accessed the data with malicious intent and create a historical narrative of the incident. This feature is critical not only for triage cybersecurity incidents but also to allow organizations to be in compliance with security regulations. The development of this task involved a delicate coordination of the cross functional team of various stakeholders including Product Managers, Interaction Designers and Software Engineers. Lucio led the entire team to successfully deliver the user experience for the public release in 2019 (Sysdig Sys 1,1). The same year he also represented the UX team in front of customers and partners during critical conferences in the field, including Kubecon 2019. To clarify the significance of Lucio’s effort to create a feature that impacted the company as a whole I extracted a couple of callouts: In March 2020, Sysdig CEO mentioned that one of the key priorities for Chief Information Security Officers (CISO) is to ensure to ”have a way to audit activity and investigate security events.” including that it is “imperative to establish a way to record detailed container activity” and “to be able to correlate this system activity with user activity” in the event of anomalous behaviors. (Forbes Sys 3,3) In 2020, Activity Audit was featured in the IBM blog article as a robust tool to understand and respond quickly to any security breach along with creating detailed forensics reports.The article highlights the Activity Audit GUI screenshot (IBM Sys 1,5).
Lucio's impact on the company as a whole Lucio’s Leading Sysdig Secure Interaction design direction and execution had a major impact in furthering Sysdig position as the Leader in Cloud Security and helped Sysdig gain widespread media attention from tech Analysts, Investors, and technology partners. For example Sysdig has been mentioned by Businesswire as the Leader in Unified Container and Cloud Security. Specifically, Alex Melamud, from global investment firm Permira mentioned “Sysdig has emerged as the clear unified container and cloud security leader” as well as Ping Li, Partner at Accel: “Accel partnered with Sysdig early on, and …today, they are the clear leader in runtime security for cloud and containers.”, also Rory Twomey, Vice President at Guggenheim Investments: “Guggenheim Investments is delighted to help Sysdig further its position as the leader in secure DevOps and address the security challenges of modern cloud applications” (Businesswire Sys 1,1). Similarly in the Bloomberg press release it has been mentioned Sysdig as the Leader in Unified Container and Cloud Security (Bloomberg Sys 1,1) These callouts highlight the significance of Sysdig's Security focus in order to gain success. Lucio’s contribution to Sysdig Secure had an essential part in it.
In 2020 Sysdig Secure had a strong impact as a product in the market, therefore Lucio's role leading the Sysdig Secure UX design and UX team was significant for Sysdig as a whole. Starting in 2020 the company experienced a 300 percent increase in Sysdig Secure sales (Businesswire Sys 1,2). In Dec 2021 Reuters stated that as a “fast-growing security vendor” Sysdig has doubled its valuation to $2.5 billion in a few months, as more enterprises continue to transition to cloud applications and demand more comprehensive security solutions. (Reuters Sys 1,1) Specifically, in the same article it is indicated that Sysdig “provides a UI to detect real-time threats and offers one-click remediation to eliminate security development issues” serving customers, including Goldman Sachs and SAP.(Reuters Sys 1,2) Furthermore I believe that Lucio’s Interaction Design contribution has furthered the position of Sysdig as a distinguished company in the Cloud Security and Cybersecurity field since his employment and it perpetuated in the following years. Some examples of Sysdig establishment in the field are: In 2020 Sysdig was named by CNR one of the “10 Top Startups That Raised Funding In January 2020” (CNR Sys 3), In 2021 Forbes (Middle East) posted a picture of the Nasdaq screen in Time square that congratulates Sysdig the Cloud Security Unicorn on a $1.19B valuation (Forbes Sys 4). Furthermore, Sysdig has been mentioned by several international and national media articles for its $2.5B valuation including Crunchbase, Venturebeat, Bloomberg, Businesswire, Securtyweek, SiliconAngle, CNR, Reuters, and Forbes. In 2022 Venturebeat named Sysdig as one of the 10 companies which are worth watching out of 53 privately held companies that reached more than a billion-dollar valuation in the Cybersecurity market. (Venturebeat Sys 1,1) In 2022 CNR named Sysdig as one of “The 20 Coolest Cloud Security Companies Of The 2022 Cloud 100” (CNR Sys 4).
