My name is Andreas Buckenhofer. Data has always been my main focus during my long-time occupation in the area of data management. I work for Mercedes-Benz Tech Innovation as a Lead Expert in Vehicle Data Platforms with over 20 years of experience in data-intense projects. I keep my knowledge up-to-date and learn new things, experiment, and program every day.

I share my knowledge in internal presentations or as a speaker at international conferences. Current and past public appearances can be found here. In addition, I’m regularly giving full lectures on “Data Warehousing” and “Data Management Fundamentals” at Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University DHBW. I also gained international experience through a two-year project in Greater London and several business trips to Asia.

I’m a delegate and DBC member at the independent German Oracle User Group (DOAG) and was honoured by Oracle as an ACE Associate. In addition, I hold current certifications in the area of databases and data architecture, such as “Certified Data Vault 2.0 Practitioner (CDVP2)” or “IBM Big Data Architect “. I also publish articles on the Mercedes-Benz Tech Innovation blog.

This website is my blog and contains my own opinion.
