Dr. Bernhard Tritsch
As Chief System Architect for visionapp GmbH in Frankfurt, Germany, Bernhard Tritsch is responsible for the development and the adaptation of terminal server and application access portal products for the commercial market. visionapp was founded when the Dresdner Bank terminal server project starship and the German terminal server system integrator asp4you were merged into a new company. Today, visionapp has offices in Germany and in England, and it belongs to the Dresdner Bank Group and the Allianz Group.
Before joining visionapp, Bernhard Tritsch was Director of Software Development and New Technologies for the Group Technologies AG business unit asp4you in Karlsruhe, Germany, from July 2001 to October 2002. Under his leadership, the system integrator asp4you started with the development of products derived from large terminal server projects. This resulted in a very close cooperation with the developers from the project starship at Dresdner Bank. At that time, starship was one of the most spectacular terminal server projects in Europe, including 250 terminal servers with 140 published applications for 5,500 international users.
Prior to that, from 1999 to 2001, Bernhard Tritsch held the position of a Technical Director at GTS-GRAL in Rossdorf, Germany. Leading 40 highly-skilled systems engineers in the United States and in Europe, he and his team were reponsible for consulting, system integration, and customer support in the field of server-based computing solutions for enterprises.
Bernhard Tritsch joined the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics in Darmstadt, Germany, where he worked in research as Windows developer (C, C++) and project leader for international computer graphics projects for four years. After receiving an equivalent to a Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1996 from the Technical University in Darmstadt, Germany, Bernhard Tritsch was the group leader responsible for the introduction and the administration of more than 400 PCs under Windows NT at the Fraunhofer Institute and its affiliated research institutes in Germany, Portugal, Singapore, and the United States until the end of 1998. During that time he was also leading a test and development laboratory for Windows NT in heterogeneous networks, which was supported by Microsoft. The goal of this laboratory was to work out enterprise solutions based on Windows NT, Active Server Pages, Terminal Servers and Citrix MetaFrame.
Previously, Bernhard Tritsch received an equivalent to an M.S. degree in Physics from the University in Freiburg, Germany, after finishing his master’s thesis at the European Organization for Nuclear Research CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.
Over the last 12 years, Bernhard Tritsch gave some 200 presentations in Europe and in the United States, published more than 24 articles, and wrote four books in German; three of them were about terminal servers. This is his first book in English.
When he is not in multi-user Windows mode, Bernhard Tritsch enjoys the time he shares with his wife, his two sons, and the teammates from his volleyball team. They are the ones who keep him going.
