Dr. Michael Goller, CTO
As the CTO of Detego, Dr. Michael Goller is responsible for the development and implementation of the Detego Suite. Since 2008, Michael has been handling customer projects for fashion companies as well as fashion retailers. His thorough understanding of retail processes, from logistics to the store itself, presents a tremendous benefit to customers in this era of omni-channel retailing. His vision for the future is centred on the “digital store”. As a postdoctoral research fellow at the Graz Technical University, he has a firm grasp of solving difficult problems using a combination of analytical methods and the most modern software technologies. This combination of skills and experience allow him to successfully bridge the gap between the needs of customers and the application driven work involved in R&D. Michael’s chosen doctoral dissertation topic is “Probabilistic Modelling in RFID Systems”; he’s already made a name for himself through his scientific publications and his involvement in the scientific community.
