Meet me at the Data Leader Day 2017 in Berlin

I feel honored that I have been ask to participate in a high-level panel discussion at the Data Leader Day 2017 in Berlin, on November 9th.

The panel is filled with top CIOs and CDOs of the German Industry:

  • Dr. Volkmar Weckesser, Member of Executive Board & CIO of Centogene
  • Dr. Müller-Wünsch, CIO, Otto Group
  • Farhad Khalil, CEO & CDO, Der Tagesspiegel
  • Helen Arnold, President SAP Data Network
  • Dr. Ralf Belusa, CDO, Ziegert real estate
  • Steffen Heilmann, CIO, myToys

The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Olaf Röper, who was, among many other functions, CIO of ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions AG, a worldwide operating plant manufacturer.



I am very much looking forward to a highly interesting and hopefully controversial discussion about “CIO vs CDO – Who owns the future?”
