Enterprise & software architecture expertise. Empowerment of architectural change.

About

I’m highly focused on empowering people and organizations to implement changes related to the way they design, evaluate and implement architectures. This encompasses the enhancement of architecture-related methods and processes (e.g. architecture-centered engineering, agile architecting), the comprehensive adoption of technologies (e.g. IoT, analytics) and application of innovative architectural patterns and designs (e.g. cloud-native architectures). To summarize, I refer to all those activities as architectural change management.

During my career, I have gained more than 20 years of experience in strategic IT advisory, IT projects, enterprise and software architecture management. I have extensive practical experience in consulting on various large-scale projects and worked intensively with customers on innovative IT solutions. Particularly, I have a strong background on software architectures and software engineering. Thus, I have profound knowledge and experience in designing, evaluating and implementing software-intensive systems. I embrace complexity, new technologies and architectural challenges. However, I always observe new IT trends critically and put them into perspective.

I like to share knowledge, give talks and occasionally blog here. This website contains some abstracts of my activities and work. In addition it comprises a knowledge base which consists of a curated list of resources which I consider valuable.
