Dr. Horst Kargl has been working with OO modeling since 2000. Before joining SparxSystems in 2008, he was a research associate at the Vienna University of Technology and worked on projects in the areas of e-Learning, Semantic Web and model-driven software development. He wrote his dissertation and dealt with the automatic integration of modelling languages. His focus is on software architecture, code generation as well as the customization and extension possibilities of Enterprise Architect. He is the author of several professional articles, regularly gives lectures on Model Driven Software Development and is involved in industry and research projects.

Peter Lieber started at the age of 17 as a freelance system consultant at Borland Austria and was also responsible for TogetherSoft market preparation (both companies now Microfocus).  The transfer of technological knowledge in the areas of distributed systems (n-Tier, SOA) and development environments to software developers and those who want to become software developers has been a matter of concern to him for more than a decade. With this experience it was obvious to level the UML market for the Australian manufacturer SparxSystems with the motto "Do you still program, or are you already modeling". He distinguishes himself by his always new innovative ideas to chance-oriented solutions.

Dipl.-Ing. Franz Müller has been engaged in object-oriented programming since 1995. His professional career led him from many years of software development to requirements engineer and software architect. Even before his diploma thesis "Object Oriented Programming with Enterprise JavaBeans" in cooperation with Siemens PSE, object-oriented modeling had become an indispensable part of his work. At SparxSystems he has travelled the world furthest as a trainer and has held several trainings at a renowned consulting and outsourcing company in India.

Ing. Dietmar Steinpichler worked as a freelance system developer in the real-time area and as a business analyst and designer for a telecommunications company. His special topics are programming language development in the CTI area, pattern recognition and abstraction algorithms. As a technical project manager, he has completed several large-scale projects with UML modeling tools and distributed architecture. Since 2007 he is working as trainer and consultant for Sparxsystems Software GmbH.

Richard Deininger, developer since 2001, has gained extensive experience in the programming languages C#, C, C++, VB, Java and PL-SQ, as well as with the databases Oracle, MySQL and SQL-Server.

He has proven his expertise in many customer projects and is an excellent consultant for Enterprise Architect programming.
