As a technology and product pioneer Bernardo has played a key role, both as a thought leader and as a creator of highly innovative and pioneering business solutions in the information technology industry. Working with and managing exceptionally talented and energetic technology teams on a global scale, he has implemented the first market-based resource allocation systems for computer networks; exploited the emergence of the world-wide web to pioneer the use of large scale data to identify communities inside organizations; and, most dramatically, to quantitatively predict the technology future. For example, Bernardo correctly predicted that 80% of enterprise infrastructure would be on cloud by 2020 way back in 2010, when cloud was in its nascence. In addition, he was the inventor of ePrint, the first system that allows any mobile device to remotely print any document anywhere in the world at the press of a button, just as smart phones were taking-off, which alone provided millions in weekly new revenues to HP.
Bernardo’s most recently was 15 Senior Fellow, SVP, and Director at HP and then at HPE, responsible for strategic directions, the creation of new technologies, and interactions with both internal divisions and outside customers. For the past year he has been Fellow and Vice President of Core Innovation at CableLabs.
Throughout his career he has generated more than 46 patents (with more pending) and is recognized as both a thought leader and effective manager of creative teams. Bernardo has a Ph.D. in Physics from University of Pennsylvania and lives with his family in the San Francisco Bay Area.
