Dr. Tom Ritter is Director of the Business Unit SQC

Education & Career

Dr. Tom Ritter graduated with a Master's degree in Computer Science from the Technical University of Berlin and did his PhD in 2011 at Humboldt University Berlin in modeling quality of service of component oriented systems. Since 1998 he worked at Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS in the area of tool development and distributed systems. Since 2006 he was heading the Model-Driven Engineering group at FOKUS and from 2010 he was the Deputy Head of the competence center SQC (formerly MOTION). As of December 2013 he is Head of the Business Unit “System Quality Center” (SQC).

His major interest is the model-driven software engineering, the development of software tools, software development processes, tool integration infrastructure and the consideration of non-functional properties and QoS at design and execution time. Tom is one of the Co-Authors of a CORBA Component based Middleware Platform (Qedo). Since 2004 Tom participated to the design of the tool integration infrastructure ModelBus and he is heading the ModelBus development team. Tom is involved in different standardization activities at the Object Management Group, he is coauthor on books about components and services and contributes continuously to workshops and conferences.
