New employee: Konstantinos Traganos (Kostas)

Traganos_PhotoI obtained my Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2007 (5-years degree) from National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece, with a specialization in Communications.
After my studies I fulfilled my military service and then I worked for 3.5 years as a software developer in a private company operating in tourism industry, based in Athens, Greece.

In September 2014 I completed my MSc degree in Business Information Systems, at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), The Netherlands, with a specialization in Business Process Management (BPM). My master project was about the Design of a Standard Architecture for Service Management based on the BASE/X framework, which is a business engineering framework for service-dominant business. The project was carried out at DLL, a global provider of leasing and finance solutions where we also implemented a prototype in a BPM tool (from Pega, a leader in BPM market) to act as a proof of concepts of the BASE/X framework regarding the agility of organizations to offer new service compositions to the market.
During my post-graduate studies, I also worked for a short period as a student assistant, tutoring Bachelor level students for a Design-based learning project.

Upon completion of my master studies, I worked as a Research Assistant in the Information Systems (IS) research group of the Industrial Engineering and Innovation Sciences (IE&IS) Department of TU/e. I was involved in the “ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) Reference Architecture NL” project, establishing a ground for mobility standard in The Netherlands, taking existing heterogenous architectures into account. A business framework that would show the benefits (and costs) for deployment of mobility systems and the connection to the architecture framework were also objectives of that project. Furthermore, I worked on “PPA (Praktijkproef Amsterdam) Zuidoost” (a large-scale trial designed to reduce traffic jams in the Amsterdam region) project in order to define a business framework to guide the identification of stakeholders, costs and benefits for deployment of ITS applications.

In May 2015 I moved to Luxembourg to work as a software engineeer in TiVo (formerly Rovi Corporation), a global leader in digital entertainment discovery.

Since October 2016, I returned to IS group to work as a Business Information Systems Engineer for Advanced Manufacturing Process Management. My role is part of a larger team of HORSE project, a prestigious and innovative European R&D project in the area of smart factories. The project focuses on the application in manufacturing of business process management concepts, theories and technologies.
