As Director, Global Software and Technology Partners at SAP AG, my IT background enables me to combine strategy execution with key relationship for SAP AG. As enterprise architect, I am acting as a conduit for ideas and innovation. Recently, I had the opportunity to present at Java One, the University of St. Gallen and Stanford University. In total, I have more than 12 years experience in the IT industry in several leading positions in SAP consultancy, executive advisory and partner management. Formerly being with Sun Microsystems, I provided global leadership in terms of information system modeling, advocated e-business architecture and provided risk mitigation strategies for large-scale Java implementations.
