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.
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.
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?

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

Splunk as logging for distributed systems
