Through years of experience, both in corporations and start-ups, I have a broad insight to address digital opportunity and challenge of your corporate and business strategies.
I collaborate with your leadership teams as an external consultant or interim manager, acting as a sparring partner on strategy and the application of technology to gain a competitive edge. This entails having a thorough understanding of technology as well as a comprehension of how product and technology roadmaps should be coordinated to maintain market competitiveness. The objective is to support your business until all necessary resources may one day be mapped inside. This is accomplished by identifying and resolving current action fields.
In a digital environment, are products and services competitive?
Can the company’s goals be met with the technologies and IT architectures used?
Can projects be realized „on time and on budget“?
Does your company manage to find digital minds for the goals?
Are tech and product staff sufficiently comitted?
Is there an broad understanding of technology in management?

In the realm of contemporary technology and product development, the significance of frameworks, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions, cloud providers, and various vendors cannot be overstated. While I maintain a technology-agnostic approach, I believe that the modern tech landscape offers rarely unsuitable solutions. I mainly work with the following cutting-edge technologies and solution providers:
.NET, an efficient software platform utilizing C#
Python, a versatile programming language
Cloud Providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure
Salesforce CRM, featuring sales, service, and marketing cloud
API management solutions like Mulesoft and Microsoft Azure
Message brokers including RabbitMQ and Apache Kafka
Cloudflare, a Secure Access Service Edge solution, primarily for DDoS Protection
Collaboration solution Microsoft 365
Databases such as Microsoft SQL Server, CosmosDB, and MongoDB
ElasticSearch, a distributed search and analytics engine
Splunk, a go-to for logging distributed systems
Azure Data Factory for ETL/ELT Integration components
Reporting layers PowerBI and Tableau
These technologies form a robust part of my toolkit, empowering me to provide comprehensive and effective solutions.
