SERVICES

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.

REASON WHY

As an external consultant or interim manager, I work with your leadership teams as a sparring partner on strategy and the use of technology to gain a competitive advantage. This includes a broad technology knowledge and an understanding of how products and technology roadmaps need to be aligned to remain competitive in the market. The goal is to accompany your company until all necessary resources can be mapped in-house in the future. This is achieved by recognizing and solving current fields of action.

TECHNOLOGY

Modern technology and oriented product and process development is always strongly connected with frameworks, software-as-a-service solutions, cloud providers and other vendors. In general, I follow a technologically agnostic approach, because I am convinced that nowadays there are hardly any really unfavorable technology solutions.  but work primarily with the following technologies and solution providers:

  • .NET as software platform with C#, Python as programing langauge 

  • Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure as cloud providers

  • Salesforce as CRM with sales, service and marketing cloud

  • Mulesoft and Microsoft Azure as API management solutions

  • RabbitMQ and Apache Kafka as message brokers

  • Cloudflare as Secure Access Service Edge solution, especially for DDoS Protection

  • Microsoft 365 as collaboration solution

  • Microsoft SQL Server, snowflake, Cosmos DB, MongoDB as database

  • ElasticSearch as distributed search engine and analytics engine

  • Splunk as logging for distributed systems

  • PowerBI and Tableau as reporting layer
