Enrico Signoretti

Web site:



I’m an independent IT analyst, advisor and passionate blogger at juku.it (not necessarily in that order).

Having been Immersed into IT environments for over 20 years, my career began with Assembler in the second half of the 80′s before moving on to UNIX platforms (but always with the Mac at heart) until now when I joined the “”Cloudland””.

In 2012 I founded Juku consulting, a new consultancy and advisory firm highly focused on supporting end users, vendors and third parties in the development of their IT infrastructure strategies.

I’m constantly keeping an eye on how the market evolves and continuously looking for new ideas and innovative solutions.

I’m also a fond sailor and an unsuccessful fisherman.

I am open to opportunities in Italy, Europe or abroad.
