Technical project lead
Bayer Business Services
In 2002 I participated in a special Bayer program of study that terminated in 2005 with a degree in business information systems.
During these three years I made first experiences with different Content Management Systems. With Typo3 we set up a students-community in the Bayer-Intranet, with a proprietary Lotus Notes-based solution we customized Intranet sites.
I have been working in my current department (Content Management) since 2005 and additionally dealt with CMS like TimeToWeb or Interwoven Teamsite.
When in the beginning of 2006 we decided to introduce OpenCms as new standardized system I took
over some smaller customizations (templates, editor-xsd's) and later on I was responsible for
One major project with a duration of more than one year was the integration of OpenCms into an IBM Websphere Portal.
