Jochen Göttelmann – CIO at Lufthansa Cargo - is nominated for the #EDLOTY Award in the B2B category! Register here: https://www.cionext.com/16 and join us on 1st February 2023 at #CIONEXT | Let’s talk Money to find out how the Finalists of the European Digital Leader of the Year 2023 support the bottom line in times of crisis.

Lufthansa, one of the top 10 airlines in the world, was close to insolvency in 2020 while playing a crucial role in society during the pandemic: transporting medical equipment as quickly as possible. Do current events in the world significantly impact the company’s financial performance, and what measures are in place to save money? To what extent does IT help with optimising costs at this difficult time? 

In this LeadershipDeepDive Interview, Hendrik Deckers discusses with Jochen how the first large-scale cloud project at Lufthansa Cargo – migration to a new booking engine – was planned and implemented and how to manage a large agile team of 60 – 80 developers working on high-complexity projects. They also talked about the Production Planning and Steering environment (PPS), which helps predict shipment flows to up to 14 days, and at the same time, is one of the strategies to deal with the lack of skilled workforce.

Watch the full interview to find out if Lufthansa’s cloud strategy is going to bring savings to the company or if it is more expensive than the traditional on-prem approach and if CIOs are becoming “Chief Inspiration Officers” when it comes to innovation.
