”The name of the initiative says it all: Backbone.Josef-Werner SchwabSenior Enterprise Solution Architect, Linde Engineering
For us, the IT team, the Backbone is one of the toughest and most challenging IT projects. But for the company, the Backbone is one of the key strategic, digital initiatives. It improves the quality and availability of information in project execution. The Backbone is also the a key enabler for other digital initiatives at Linde Engineering.
