Heidelberg, December 5th, 2023 – cbs is strengthening its consulting offering and bringing Dr. Carl Winter on board. Winter, born in 1972, joins cbs as Consulting Director and will act as a link between the ERP and Transformation business units and the Technology/Digital Architecture division.

“We are delighted that we have been able to recruit Carl Winter for cbs. He is an extremely valuable addition.

By 2030, companies will be facing huge changes with regard to their future business platform, and not just as a result of the leap to SAP S/4HANA. cbs’ mission is to shape the innovations of tomorrow’s global market leaders (NEXT ONE).

“This approach combines global end-2-end solutions, innovative technologies, consulting for strategy, architecture and process design with first-class transformation services. Carl Winter will contribute his expertise when it comes to building a stringent roadmap for large industrial customers for the precise path to the intelligent enterprise – integrative across the entire portfolio, cloud-based and including the latest AI and analytics tools. The aim is to align the business model of the future, including all processes, with the customer’s future business platform,” emphasizes Wittwen.

He has in-depth knowledge of SAP business and has acquired comprehensive knowledge of SAP strategy, technology, transformations, cloud, ALM (Application Lifecycle Management) and ITSM (IT Service Management) over two decades. He looked after large industrial customers and global corporations, continuously developed accounts and was responsible for the organization’s presales and processes. His other successes include setting up and managing global delivery and support teams.
