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

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.

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, CosmosDB, MongoDB as database

  • ElasticSearch as distributed search engine and analytics engine

  • Splunk as logging for distributed systems

  • Azure Data Factory as ETL/ ELT Integration component

  • PowerBI and Tableau as reporting layer
