He is a Diplom Informatiker (German Degree for Computer Science) living in Jakarta, Indonesia. During his study, he already gathered several years of experience as Software Developer at a startup company in Germany where he was intensively involved in establishing application for an innovative Human Resource business.

Following the graduation, he has been working as Technology Consultant for clients from diverse industries across Europe. In most cases he supports clients in analyzing, developing, integrating and innovating their IT systems by means of Object Oriented Paradigm, Agile Methodology, Service Oriented Architecture, Cloud Computing, High Scalability Architecture and Enterprise Java technology that optimizes corporate processes and brings in strategic enhancement to their business.

The experience he has gained during his career as Technology Consultant has strengthen his interest for exploring more about firm’s organizational behavior and creating business value from integrated IT. This particular interest did encourage him to take an Executive MBA program at the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management, during which he investigated and analyzed above all on “the multi-team collaboration and how to scale an agile team” for his Master thesis.

Soon after his Executive MBA graduation, he took over an opportunity as VP of Product Development at a leading Online Payment Gateway and Electronic Money Enterprise in Indonesia, with the aim to shape its operation to be more agile and innovative. There he lead, coach and train the agile change agents in implementing Scrum and make sure that the framework and its values are embodied and lived by the organization.

As an active member within IT community groups and open source projects, I often contribute by sharing knowledge and being a speaker or trainer for conferences and webinars.
