A Tribute to Manuel Sadosky

A lo largo de más de 30 años, la Industria Argentina del Software ha crecido sostenidamente hasta lograr consolidar un mercado de más de 3.500 millones de dólares, exportando más de 1.000 millones de dólares, con un universo de más de 5.000 compañías, de las cuales el 95% son MiPyMes que emplean a más de 82.000 profesionales, organizadas en decenas de clusters, polos y entidades a lo largo y a lo ancho de nuestro país. Entre todos, se ha creado un gran ecosistema virtuoso, denominado "Triángulo de Sábato" que, junto a universidades, escuelas técnicas y las iniciativas de los gobiernos, promueven a esta pujante industria de la economía del conocimiento como uno de los sectores claves de la producción nacional, generadora de empleo de calidad y divisas.

Así, CESSI, la Cámara de la Industria Argentina del Software, desarrolla numerosas iniciativas con el objeto de afianzar las condiciones que sustentan el crecimiento de su industria, resumidas en cuatro grandes ejes estratégicos: Institucionalidad, Mercados, Talento y Sociedad, para permitir aumentar la cantidad de talento argentino disponible, fomentar la formación y creación de nuevas empresas, aumentar la inversión en investigación & desarrollo y en calidad, acrecentar el financiamiento, promover las exportaciones, concientizar a los socios sobre producir software para lograr mayor inclusión social, ayudar a la transformación digital de la sociedad, y colaborar con los gobiernos para lograr una Argentina digitalmente desarrollada.

En este sentido, CESSI distingue con los Premios Sadosky, desde hace más de 10 años, a aquellas empresas, equipos de trabajo, organizaciones y personas que, con su labor y desempeño, contribuyen al crecimiento de la Industria Argentina del Software en cualquiera de sus ejes estratégicos.

Los Sadosky, los premios a la Industria Argentina del Software, son una iniciativa de carácter sociocultural y sin fines de lucro cuyo propósito es dar a conocer los mejores valores de nuestra industria  a la sociedad.

Biography

Sadosky Manuel was born in Buenos Aires on April 13, 1914. The son of a Russian immigrant couple that arrived in the country in 1905.  He received his primary and secondary education at Escuela Normal Mariano Acosta. In 1940 he graduated from the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) with a Doctoral degreein Physics and Mathematics.  Immediately he began teaching as a professor at the UBA and the University of La Plata, however eventually left teaching career in order to continue his studies at the Henri Poincare Institute in Paris between 1946 and 1947, and the Calculus Institute of Rome in 1948, where he focused his career toward applied mathematics.

Upon his returnto Buenos Aires, he taught at the Instituto Radiotécnico – at the time an institue recently crated by the UBA and the Maritime Ministry – until 1953 when he decided to devote his time to the publishing of several books.

After 1955, he taught at the University of Buenos Aires, first in the College of Engineering and then in the College of Natural Sciences, where he became vice dean between 1957 and 1966.  At that time, the computation sciences began to be the subject of intense study at university level.

Interested in this topic, in 1960 Sadosky formed the Calculus Institute within the College of Exact Sciences and was its director between 1958 and 1956. With support from the National Research Council (CONICET), chaired by Bernardo Houssay, in 1960 introduced the first computer in this country and the first in a university in Latin America. And he also envisioned and created the  Computer Science degree.

He was forced to leave his teaching career after the infamous “Noche de los Bastones Largos” (Night of the Long Clubs).  In 1967 he moved to Uruguay where he began the Calculus Institute of Montevideo in Uruguay’s public university, Universidad de la República, where he would receive and honorary doctoral degree.

During the military dictatorship, he was exiled and worked in applied mathematics at the “Instituto Cendes de la Universidad Central de Venezuela” from 1974 to 1979.  Later he moved to Barcelona, Spain where he became connected with the “Museo de Ciencias de Barcelona” (Science Museum of Barcelona).

In 1983, he returned to Argentina where he was appointed Secretary of Science and Technology during president Raúl Alfonsín’s first term in office (1983 - 1989) and created the Latin American Graduate School of Information Technology (ESLAI). In 1985 he was appointed Professor Emeritus at the University of Buenos Aires, and remained involved participating in different committees and organizations. He died on June 18, 2005.
