What’s in for 2020 and beyond?

For us, this last year was like a rollercoaster ride. Since the beginning of our relationship with Heidelberg, they asked us what an open platform for the industry might look like, and how it would work. We drew, we argued, we developed, we threw things away. We turned things up and down, improved, tested and went back to the drawing board. This how we work! Zaikio is evolving every day and will always be better than the day before. This is our past, present and future.

Christian Christian Weyer, Managing Director Technology at Zaikio, is responsible for infrastructure and product development. He loves to get to the bottom of things and develop simple solutions to complex problems.
