BIO

I'm a serial entrepreneur in the Software Industry. In my career I've been a methodology consultant, a pre-sales engineer, an IT researcher, a university professor, VP of R&D, Regional Sales Director and CEO of several software development organisations. I spent a significant part of my life in the Application Lifecycle Management, Requirements Management and Agile Software Development arenas. I've been recently serving as VP Product Management, then SVP Strategy and BusDev in Polarion Software. In this role I met nice research challenges like ALM / PLM convergence, IoT, Industry 4.0, DevOps, Systems Engineering, Requirements Elicitation and Management. My activity around ALM/PLM convergence and IoT played a significant role in the acquisition of Polarion by Siemens PLM.
