“Boring products, exciting customers”

Sandeep Sen, Global CIO of Linde plc

“Boring products, exciting customers” – That is a big understatement when Sandeep Sen, global CIO of Linde plc, introduces his company. Indeed, Linde is a global leader in industrial gases and engineering, with revenues of $33.4 billion in 2022. “We live our mission to make our world more productive every day by providing high-quality solutions, technologies and services that make our customers more successful and help to sustain, decarbonize and protect our planet.” That doesn’t sound boring at all!

On June 20, Sandeep and 14 of his colleagues as well as seven #CIOmove partners gathered at the company’s headquarters in Pullach near #Munich to discuss his decentralized IT business model and all the hot topics like zero trust, generative AI and sustainability. The format was a success: Sandeep and his colleagues from Linde presented their concepts for discussion, and the attending CIOs compared these concepts with their own. This quickly led to a lively discussion. Thank you, Sandeep!
