After being successful in making Hybris the preferred platform choice for many retailers, manufacturers and brands embarking on their digital journey, Hybris was acquired by SAP in 2013. The price was a staggering $1.5 billion, making it one of the first unicorn exits in Europe. When joining the globally recognized firm SAP as CTO for their Customer Experience unit it enabled Moritz to continue to explore the field of emerging CX technology. This time within a bigger context and able to build products to support some of the world’s biggest brands to enhance their digital customer experience. Moritz business skills were yet again proven, as his unit became the fastest growing business unit within SAP.
He now joins Occtoos advisory board, contributing with his knowledge in how to build the best product and company supporting retailers and brands to create relevant customer experiences everywhere.
Today every company needs to be agile and quick adaption is vital. The technology that supports that is best-of-breed, Headless and API-first. But the problem with this approach is that you get data scattered in many different systems, loosing the ability to combine different kinds of data into contextually relevant experiences for the customers. Occtoo is the solution to solving this. It is a game changer in the CX space, ensuring companies can become fast-moving and agile using modern technology without doing any trade off in the end customer experience, says Moritz Zimmermann
After ending his assignment at SAP in March 2021, Moritz Zimmermann is now focusing his time on supporting startups as both an advisor and investor at 42CAP.
Moritz Zimmermann has one of the world’s most relevant profiles for a company such as Occtoo. His deep expertise within the CX space, understanding the true grind of entrepreneurship and experience from supporting some of the world’s biggest companies in improving their digital customer experience is really valuable knowledge for our journey. His contribution will be important as we develop Occtoo as a product and company while ensuring we bring the most value to our growing community of customers, partners and team members, Jimmy Ekbäck, CTO and Co-founder of Occtoo
During Moritz time at Hybris he also worked as an industry colleague to Niclas Mollin, CEO of Occtoo and Jimmy Ekbäck at their previous venture inRiver.
Having gotten to know Jimmy and Niclas as highly-respected competitors in a past life I look forward to working side by side with them as they set out to build a global company for the second time around, Moritz concludes
