During my career as software engineer, project manager or product manager I encountered a huge number of systems.

And when I say "encountered" I mean "used", "integrated", "configurated", "budgeted", "planned", "interfaced" or what else was the task at the time.

Business systems:

  • EUREX T7 and C7 and predecessors
  • DEVON 2.22
  • DEVON 2.34
  • DEVON 6
  • IBM Power Trader (ORS)
  • Trading and Backoffice-Systems of the derivative exchanges
  • DECIDE to V5.5
  • Revendex' primedex®
  • Octagon
    less intensive contact I had to
  • Summit
  • Murex
  • Reuters
  • Bloomberg
  • Speedy
  • UBIX
  • Front Arena
  • TickTS
  • ION Rolfe+Nolan Ranbase
  • Clearvision
  • Gloss, Gloss HV
  • GEOS


Some relevant benchmark figures of the last 30 years:

  • Budget responsibility up to 4,5 M€ p.a.
  • Teams up to 20 people
  • >30 years experience in listed derivatives and securities
  • >30 years to principal software engineer
  • >20 years of architectural planning and design of IT landscapes
  • >10 years of project management in complex technical environments across languages and country borders
    so I think of myself as business fluent in German, Hessian and English with some some basic knowledge in French and currently adding some Japanese
