Enterprise Software Zen Master

  Product Development     Software Architectures     Project Management  

I'm a senior project manager, software architect and lean startup entrepreneur. With nearly 20 years of work experience I help companies to produce better software and services. My passion is to lead professional teams to create new innovations that are changing the way we work and live.



Consulting and interim management. Available online across the world or on-site in Europe (DACH, Benelux and Scandinavia).

Product Development

Knowhow in product development is the backbone of my services: Over 15 years of software development projects, enterprise solutions and award winning SaaS products. I've helped companies from small to large in productization, requirements engineering, specifications and software development.

Software Architectures

Well designed is half-done. Software architecture is much more than just technical specifications and UML diagrams. It's about communication and knowledge. How to transform customer's requirements into robust solutions, orchestrated with powerful platforms, SaaS services and APIs.

Project Management

I've been responsible for teams of software developers, creative professionals and industry specialists. My lean startup experience and certified project management skills can make your projects to achieve goals. Whether it's Scrum software development or ad-hoc task force, I'm available.

I'm familiar with broad variety of technologies and methodologies:

#Java Enterprise Edition #Enterprise Application Integration #Business Intelligence #Business Process Management #Relational Databases #Design Patterns #Development Frameworks #Application Servers #Web Development #Mobile Development #User Experience Design #Scrum Development #UML Specifications #Salesforce #Amazon Web Services #Open Source
