I am a  technologist and senior leader with more than fifteen years’ experience in the information technology field with focus on product management and software engineering.  I managed to combine my strategic and entrepreneurial mindset throughout my career successfully. My specialization is to drive the development of innovative products and support their market entry.

I am a Product Manager at SAP SE, Walldorf and responsible for enabling SAP Health solutions for the cloud. Previously I have been working for the eHealth Startup InterComponentWare for more than ten years. In my latest role at ICW, I was responsible for the complete product portfolio. I studied business information science at the University Of Cooperative Education Mannheim, Germany.

Personally, my primary interests are emerging and future technologies (e.g. Internet of things, wearable technologies, cloud & edge computing and machine learning’) for creating intelligent, integrated solutions and convenient interfaces for people. I do contemplate how data-driven applications can be designed to ensure privacy, transparency, and sustainability while focusing on outcomes and business value.
