Cristina Mossi Scaling Peaks with Devis

By Gary Tischler

Washington, DC - In 1994, when Cristina Mossi first reported for work as a systems analyst at a small company call InfoStructure International, she was the first official computer engineer in the company.

The company billed itself as an IT consulting firm but served mostly USAID clients, with a mission to support and solve international development needs. It was not primarily an IT company. It was small--less than ten employees, as Mossi recalled.

Mossi was offered the job because of her IT background and expertise and because she spoke Spanish, a useful skill given that many of the USAID clients were in Latin America. "Right away, they sent me off to Swaziland in South Africa, to learn and train on a system developed for USAID. We came with an old huge projector, a huge, bulky PC and a big box of floppy disk. E-mail had not evolved to what it is today and data sharing was complicated and time-consuming."
