Head of Application Development
Our application development unit focuses on lightweight, scalable architectures. We develop user-centric web systems and portals and implement concepts preferably with J2EE/Java EE and open-source technologies. We also integrate the applications we develop into existing IT systems (using REST, SOAP, JDBC etc.) and form cross-functional DevOps teams to consider the subsequent high-availability, highly scalable software operations in the data centres. In addition to implementing sophisticated web applications with Java Enterprise Backend, we focus on developing applications for mobile end devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Our Mobile Development team specialises in the design and implementation of high-calibre, quality-assured applications integrated into our customers' backend systems. The team has particular expertise in Android.
Data Management & Analytics
Head of Data Management & Analytics
Our Data Management & Analytics unit handles traditional business intelligence topics (data warehousing, ETL, reporting, dashboards etc.), as well as new trends in BI environments, including agile business intelligence, big data, mobile BI and social analytics. The Data Management & Analytics team specialises in projects with specific requirements: modelling highly complex cubes, the integration of heterogeneous data sources, the implementation of mobile dashboards, data warehouse tuning and the handling of very large volumes of data. When it comes to implementation, we focus on 3 key technologies: Microsoft BI, Pentaho and Hadoop.
IT Engineering & Operations
Head of IT Engineering & Operations
"IT Engineering and Operations" handles the combined disciplines required for the flexible, reliable operation of systems in data centres: the design, installation and configuration of server infrastructures, and the daily maintenance and running of these systems. Our focus is on high availability and scalability, migrations, the cloud, and open-source data centre management. We use innovative technologies to achieve these aims, with an emphasis on open source. Working closely with the development team enables us to align infrastructures very closely with the software we have developed (DevOps).
Head of inovex Academy
We like to share the knowledge and technologies we employ in our projects with our customers in the form of trainings and coachings – just like an application-oriented "academy" does. As effective IT service providers we not only solve problems, we offer long-term solutions.
Our traings are available "in-house" at our customers' offices at a time of their choice or "open"—on fixed dates and available for everyone interested.
Account Manager – West (NW)
Account Manager – SouthWest/West
Account Manager – North
Our business development team ensures that our innovative technologies find their way to our customers' value-adding projects, providing long-term benefits. As a central hub they coordinate customer acquisition as well as customer relations, both of which is vital for a project house with a broad portfolio.
Many projects employing some or all of inovex's services begin with a single, focused task – e.g. mobile development. It is the responsibility of Business Development to view this initial task as part of the bigger picture (e.g. back-end integration and data center operations) and to devise a tailor-made, long-term solution without dead ends or performance limitations.
I look forward to hearing from you!
