Cybersecurity, E-Mobility, Industry 4.0 - technologies are developing rapidly, become more and more networked and complex. This also changes the requirements for standardization. In order to make early changes, the standards organization DKE Deutsche Kommission Elektrotechnik Elektronik Informationstechnik in DIN and VDE has completely redirected itself.
"In standardization, it is crucial to always be ahead of the latest technologies," says DKE Managing Director Michael Teigeler. "That's why we have fundamentally reorganized the structure of the DKE: From now on, we are strongly focusing on the needs of our customers for the technologies of the" digital ecosystem "that are relevant to the future." Teigeler, who has been a member of the DKE management since 2012, has taken over the role of a sole managing director by his predecessor Bernhard Thies in early 2017. Michael Teigeler has accompanied the redesign of the standardization work in the DKE as change manager for a long time. With the orientation of the IEC General Assembly 2016 in Frankfurt with more than 3,000 standardization experts from all over the world, he has become internationally recognized in the field of standardization.
