Favourite Topics

Replaceable system components allows you a eveolutionary architecture, increasing speed and flexibitly of systems and their development.

Enterprise Architecture

EA the "ivory tower approach" is out-dated, I believe in communities and the knowledge of the crowd. EAs mission is to enable technology & application architectural discussions and bring them to reusable results.

Cloud Native Solutions

Platform independent, scaleable and continously evolving solutions are challenging in design and implementation. I'm loving this kind of challanges!

Future IT

What will be the future of it? Machine & Deep Learning, Blockchain, IoT, Smart Assistance are just the beginning...
