In 2010, Dr. Robert Neumann founded Ultra Tendency as a spin-off of the Institute for Distributed Systems of Magdeburg University, Germany. Robert's vision was to provide innovative solutions for Big Data infrastructure to generate new value for companies across the world.
Ultra Tendency has had a close relationship with Microsoft from the beginning. Robert was a former intern in Redmond and was involved in the development of Azure when it was still called Red Dog. Ultra Tendency CIO, Jan Hentschel, was a global MVP for Azure from 2013 to 2016. He was also an Azure trainer, which established a close relationship between the two companies.
