Who are you and what do you do? Who are your partners?

I am a research associate at the Chair of Software Engineering of Business Information Systems (sebis) at the Technical University of Munich and concern myself with how companies can deal with the challenges posed by increasingly complex processes and rapidly changing technical and business requirements through the appropriate management of their enterprise architecture. In particular, I work on novel solutions for a more efficient collaboration between employees in companies through the use of social software that we develop for this purpose.

What do you expect from Software Campus?

I hope that the Software Campus will provide me with new contacts to doctoral students from other research institutions and an insight into the industrial partners involved in the project. I also see the executive qualification as a useful addition to the technical and practical work at the research institution or at the industry partner.

What is the content of your IT project and how could it be applied in the future?

In our research we develop methods and tools for analyzing, planning and controlling the interaction of complex business processes and the supporting IT systems. Based on the current state of a company, we develop solutions for the step-by-step planning and controlling of the enterprise architecture. This target vision is based on the company’s long-term business goals and IT strategy. In my IT project I develop novel tools for the step-by-step development of architecture models and the coordination of the associated tasks in social software.

What did you like most about Software Campus so far?

Most interesting to me so far are the training courses that are provided by the industry partners and the independent managing of the IT project. Especially the development of the project idea in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) was a valuable experience in my opinion.

In your opinion, what skills do top executives need to have in order to be successful today?

Today more than ever, companies are faced with the challenge of adapting their business and thus their IT to rapidly changing conditions. In my view, in the future this will require executives in companies who understand the interplay between business and IT. Beyond that, the “social competence” that is trained at the Software Campus is an important skill to be successful.

What’s your passion – besides your job and Software Campus?

As a counterbalance to my work at the Technical University of Munich and Software Campus, I try to spend my free time in the mountains and with a lot of sports. For this I always take the necessary time so that I can relax from the stressful day-to-day life and find the necessary peace.
