About this Blog
The term "Digital Transformation" is a new phenomenon that has spread virally since 2016 and has since attracted much attention - not only in the IT trade press and in business, but also in society. But what is really new and how does the digital transformation affect the economy, people and society? What is certain is that their accelerated development, driven by massive data streams and software-based algorithms, has the potential to significantly change the way we work and live in the near future.
The blog aims to analyze, evaluate and stimulate the situation of digital transformation in order to approach it in a prudent and successful manner. I look forward to your feedback and fruitful discussions.
Peter J. Kirschbauer, 76275 Ettlingen, Germany
I was born, grew up and currently live in Ettlingen, Germany. After studying computer science at the University of Applied Sciences in Karlsruhe, I started my career at the still young software company SAP. There, in a very successful, long-standing career, I was able to learn, live and participate in the global software business from scratch. I've worked for SAP in a variety of roles from developer and consultant to general manager and corporate officer in solution design, application development and business unit management for a wide range of enterprise applications, industries and international clients.
From 2010, as Chief Executive Officer , I headed InterComponentWare AG and Inc. and their strategy, development and commercialization of the ICW eHealth platform. Based on this, innovative eHealth solutions, adhering to international standards, allow a secure exchange of medical data between doctors, hospitals and patients.
Since the end of 2016, I have been working as an independent management consultant in the area of IT and digital transformation.
