In Hewlett Packard Enterprise Software this forms a foundation for the development of the IT management portfolio of products. Before joining the Office of Strategy and Technology in 2015, Lars worked in the Software portfolio architecture and strategy team in and has had many leading roles in defining and progressing the current solution portfolio. Before his current IT4IT role, Lars was part of the core team that defined HPEs CloudSystem strategy and solution portfolio.

Prior to joining the portfolio strategy office, Lars headed up HPE’s Operational Support System practice for Europe, Middle East and Africa. He played an important role in linking the vision of eTOM, NGOSS, and ITIL into practical solutions through HP’s Integrated Service Management blueprint. That design served as the basis for how many cloud services are managed today.  Lars was a researcher at the University of Denmark in the area of formal methods for computing before becoming CTO at Netman, a telecoms ISV and Consultancy Company. HP acquired Netman in 2004 and structured it into an operation support systems expertise centre.
