Sylvain is a Sales Engineer for InterSystems France since the opening of this office in the French area, in 2001. Specialized engineer in database management systems, Sylvain has participated in the development of applications for several software editors, since 1993, in the medical field or healthcare end-users, notably at the head office of the APHP.  To complete his expertise in data storage, he then joined the editor Oracle, before joining InterSystems in June 2001. His skills in data processing have therefore been extended, to an incredible rate, thanks to InterSystems enhancements.
