Chief Information Officer

Digitization increasingly influences our everyday life at the KIT, whether in the field of research, teaching, innovation or administrative tasks. Thus it is vital to look at IT from an overall strategic perspective. According to this the president oft he KIT, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Holger Hanselka himself takes responsibility for the position of the Chief Information Officer (CIO).  At the same time, the tasks of the CIO have been assigned to Prof. Dr. Hannes Hartenstein as authorized CIO representative. In German this function is called IV-Bevollmächtigter (IV-B).

According to the KIT’s articles of association the IV-B is responsible for the technical and organizational integration and coordination of all activities in the field of digital information and communication as well as for the use of information technologies at the KIT. From a strategic point of view the  focus is on principles for digitization, enterprise architecture, IT infrastructure strategies, business application needs as well as IT investment and prioritization.
