After finishing his business informatics studies in 2007 Benjamin found a calling to work with data. Starting at IBM he had the opportunity to experience the entire world of storing data on a wider range of different hardware storage architectures and solutions. But what to do with all of that stored data? Analytics for sure. So he became part of IBM’s Business Analytics & Optimization team. Afterwards at Axians Benjamin built data & analytics solutions for customers within heterogeneous software environments. A true belief in open source finally lead Benjamin to KNIME. Since joining in 2018 he is happily taking care of KNIME Key Accounts in the DACH area.
