David Bautista - How to merge Family life with tech expertise?


Meet David Bautista, a pillar at UDITIS for 11 years, where he brilliantly combines his expertise in Cloud systems with his deep family values. His career perfectly exemplifies UDITIS' philosophy: agility, continuous learning, and human relationships. Discover how David, embodying deployment, monitoring, and trust, navigates a constantly evolving technological landscape while staying rooted in his family values and passion for learning.


Could you generally explain your role, your missions, and choose 3 words that characterize them?

As a System Administrator at UDITIS, my primary role revolves around managing and optimizing systems, primarily focused on Cloud technologies, especially Azure, a field I've been passionate about for several years. This specialization is supported by my certification in Azure virtualization.

I also play a modest role in security, serving as a point of contact for security products like Sophos and Microsoft Defender. My expertise extends to specialization in certain products like Beyondtrust Remote Support and Privileged Remote Access for the U-Secure service, ensuring secure and efficient access management.

My professional journey began in the End-User Computing domain, where I managed users and their technical support. This experience allowed me to evolve towards a deeper expertise in systems.

Three words to define my role:

  1. Deployment / Skills: My role involves the efficient deployment of technological solutions, emphasizing the importance of my technical skills and ability to implement new solutions.

  2. Monitoring: I ensure the continuity and reliability of the services we offer. This constant monitoring ensures our systems operate optimally and our clients' needs are consistently met.

  3. Trust: Proximity and transparency with our clients are essential. I place great importance on guiding our clients, establishing a relationship of trust based on expertise and reliability.

These three words – deployment, monitoring, and trust – not only summarize my daily responsibilities but also illustrate my professional philosophy and the approach I take in my work at UDITIS.

What do you like most about your job?

What I enjoy most about my job is the constant challenge of staying updated in a rapidly evolving field. The inability to rely on past knowledge is both stimulating and rewarding. It compels me to continuously relearn and reinvent myself, keeping my work exciting and dynamic.

I particularly appreciate the ability to offer the best possible solution to our clients. In the technology sector, especially in Cloud and cybersecurity, what's considered an optimal solution this year might not be the same the following year. This constant evolution drives me to stay at the forefront of the latest trends and technologies.

In summary, what I love about my job is this constant pursuit of learning and the need to relearn. It's an aspect that motivates me daily and enables me to provide high-quality services tailored to the changing needs of our clients.


If you had to give advice to new hires, what would it be?

My primary advice to new recruits is to recognize and embrace the human and agile nature of our company. It's essential to understand that you're not confined to a single role or function. Our company values professional growth and encourages everyone to find their unique path that aligns with their skills and aspirations.

Agility is at the heart of our corporate philosophy. This means you have the freedom and opportunity to develop, adapt, and evolve in different roles over time. This flexible, individual-centered approach is crucial for thriving at UDITIS.

Therefore, be open to change, ready to learn and adapt. By doing so, you can not only contribute significantly to the company but also pave the way for an enriching and personalized career path.


“Embrace agility, learning, and growth for success”


What stands out most in your journey at UDITIS?

What has stood out most in my journey so far is the camaraderie and closeness among us, regardless of our roles or circles. It's an environment where you can freely discuss anything with anyone, which is quite rare and highly valuable in the professional realm.

An anecdote that perfectly illustrates this atmosphere happened at the beginning of my journey at UDITIS. During the first three years, I was outsourced to a client, which meant I had almost no direct or physical interaction with my UDITIS colleagues. However, during my first internal event, the "24h UDITIS at Chant de Gros," after about ten months in the company, I experienced a moment that deeply impacted me.

Upon my arrival, someone approached me, took my suitcase, and greeted me as if we had known each other for a long time. I was surprised because we had never met. When I asked who it was, I was told it was Michel Perrin, the company's director. This unexpected encounter and display of friendliness and kindness from such an important figure in the company truly highlighted UDITIS' unique spirit. It made me realize that I was part of a team where even the partners treat each member with exceptional warmth and kindness.

If you could put yourself in a colleague's shoes for a day, who would it be?

If I had the opportunity to step into a colleague's shoes for a day, I would choose someone from the sales department. For me, it's a field that seems almost the opposite of what I usually do as a technician. I imagine it would be a real challenge, given the differences in temperament and required skills.

It would be a fascinating experience to see how they approach their daily tasks, how they interact with clients, and how they handle different sales situations. It genuinely piques my curiosity, and I think it would provide me with a new and enriching perspective on our company and the diverse skills required for its success.


If you had an Aladdin lamp, what wishes would you make?

I must admit that I've never really thought about what I would wish for if I had an Aladdin's lamp. Being somewhat pragmatic by nature, the idea of making wishes seems a bit foreign to me. But if I were to play along, I think my wishes would be:

Family Happiness: My first wish would be somewhat selfish. I would simply wish for myself and my family to always be happy and healthy. Ensuring the well-being and happiness of my loved ones is something very dear to me.

World Peace: My second wish would be more collective. I would like to see an end to wars and the eradication of thought mechanisms that lead to conflicts. It would be a wish for a more peaceful and harmonious world, where differences are resolved through mutual understanding rather than violence.

If you had to choose a mentor, who would it be?

When it comes to choosing a mentor, my perspective is a bit different. I don't really believe in having a single assigned mentor or a particular role model. For me, each person has their strengths and weaknesses, and there's something to learn from everyone.

I prefer to adopt an approach where I draw from the best in everyone. I am convinced that humans are capable of both the best and the worst, and it's in this diversity that the opportunity to learn and grow resides. Rather than focusing on a single person as a model, I choose to be inspired by the varied qualities and skills I encounter daily, whether from my colleagues, friends, or even strangers. It's this mosaic of influences that guides my personal and professional development.

Could you tell us few words about your passions?

My passions are quite simple but mean a lot to me. The first and most important is my family. I come from Ondara, a small village in the north of Alicante, just like my wife. We have a 7-year-old daughter, and most of our family still lives there. Being geographically distant from our family strengthens our bonds.

Outside of family, my favorite hobbies are cycling and football. These activities not only help me stay fit but also provide moments of escape and relaxation.


What book would you recommend?

If I had to recommend a book, it would be 'One Hundred Years of Solitude' by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. This fascinating novel tells the story of a city and a family over a century, blending magical realism with profound themes like love and solitude. It's a work rich in characters and events that captivate and transport the reader into a world both strange and captivating.


What do you think about Sequotech?

My opinion of Sequotech is generally positive. When you've been working in a company for a long time and it gets acquired, it's natural to feel concerned or skeptical. However, with Sequotech, I quickly realized that it wasn't an impersonal, big capitalist group. On the contrary, the company has a rather familial and friendly approach.

Since we've been part of it for about two years now, I've noticed that the initial promises have been kept. Each company retains its independence while benefiting from complementarity and synergies within the group. This dynamic has preserved the identity and values of each entity while fostering fruitful collaboration. It has strengthened my confidence and appreciation for Sequotech.
