Alexander Sonnenmoser will take over the sovanta areas Development, Products (Business Bot, SHAPE®, …) and Data Lab (machine learning, AI) and contribute to successfully exploiting our growth and innovation potential.

sovanta is geared up for growth

Exciting and successful years are behind us: since the founding of sovanta AG, we have rapidly evolved from a start-up to an established and demanded player with over 180 employees in the highly competitive market for business software. And we are still on course for growth. In order to enable the next growth stage, we are currently in the midst of preparations: reorientation in organization, structure and processes as well as professionalization and the expansion of the portfolio are on the agenda at the moment. Measures that provide sovanta with a solid foundation.

Sonnenmoser combines IT competence with management know-how

As a customer and lastly as a consultant of IT businesses, Alexander Sonnenmoser got the chance to get to know sovanta over the past years. It soon became clear to both sides that we wanted to intensify and consolidate our cooperation. With Alexander Sonnenmoser, we have found the ideal support for our challenges in the rapidly developing IT environment. Sonnenmoser has many years of management experience, which he gained at the Lidl Foundation International in setting up offices, logistics centers and branches in over 20 different countries and managing a large organization. In addition, he is distinguished by his pronounced knowledge of business processes paired with sound IT competence in the areas of software development, infrastructures, data centers and other IT areas. He is also regarded as an innovation driver and a great source of inspiration. With his business and specialist knowledge from the user side, he is expected to further advance sovanta AG.

Increased efficiency, language and artificial intelligence

Since 2012, Alexander Sonnenmoser has been working with sovanta AG on the customer side. Under his influence, numerous mobile applications were developed to increase efficiency as well as the first pilot projects around Conversational UI - the use of voice and bots to simplify business processes.

And this is exactly where Alexander Sonnenmoser wants to pick up where he left off and push forward future technologies within sovanta AG: “I regard language technologies, machine learning and artificial intelligence as strong new topics for sovanta AG,” says Sonnenmoser. “I am looking forward to work on this with experienced, innovative and committed colleagues and shape the business apps of the future together with customers.”

We are looking forward to a great future together and wish Alexander Sonnenmoser a successful start.
