Simone Leggio

Director, Head Of Cloud and DevOps Practice, Application Services, Capgemini Finland

I am an experienced SW delivery leader with over 15 years of experience in delivery of applications and services. I have product delivery experience in different industries and in different roles, which gives me a 360 degree understanding of all aspects of SW development.

My specialty consists in DevOps, Release and Deployment Management, Cloud application delivery, but I am well versed in program and product management for complex SW delivery initiatives.

I am currently leading the Cloud and DevOps delivery unit in Capgemini Finland, Application Services Business Unit. The team is a center of excellence for delivering high quality Cloud applications, introducing and enforcing the DevOps delivery philosophy along with modern and automation-focused delivery methodologies. System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) concepts form the silver lining to enable efficient and automated delivery and release management operations.

My team and I help Capgemini customers on several SW delivery topics, with specific focus on:

  1. Cloud application native development, or application transition to cloud
  2. Establishment of DevOps-based delivery set-up to increase velocity and quality of deliverables, to cloud and not
  3. Release and Deployment management of complex systems, including applications cloud transitions
  4. Assessment of an organization existing delivery capabilities, establishment and execution of an action plan to achieve efficient execution capabilities. The well-known System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) approach is used to establish an efficient and automated framework of execution

You can find more details on the services we provide in the attached document.

My business management knowledge is backed by an MBA I acquired with honors in 2013 from the Aalto University Executive Education School in Helsinki. My final assignment consisted in the development of a business model for a web start-up using lean methodologies

My technical knowledge is backed by a Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Helsinki. My dissertation discussed ways to deploy the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) in networks without servers.

I have been living in Finland since 2001. In my free time I enjoy coaching my son’s football team, refereeing, playing padel, tennis and reading about astrophysics and quantum physics.
