Why I Tech

Our world is more and more data driven and becomes ever more and faster connected. The implications of hyper-connectivity are enormous, each day inspiring new perceptions and understandings of what is possible. In that field information communication technology (ICT) is a key driver for progress. Since many years I have been excited about working in the ICT sector, feeling myself a part of it by sharing experiences, knowledge transfer and taking over responsibility. Responsibility plays an increasingly important role in what will make us successful on our way into the future. At the heart of a responsible action the inner driving force is the people’s own motivation.

My personal tech/IT-trend 2017

The digital age – with Internet of things – is changing the way we live. Whatever we touch e.g. can be driven, disrupted, improved, enhanced and controlled digitally. Security is the big challenge we have to keep on this way into the future.”
