Since October 2016, Mr. Häckel has held a W2 research professorship with a focus on opportunity and risk management in digital value-creation networks at the Faculty of Computer Science at Augsburg University of Applied Sciences. He is also Deputy Academic Director at the Research Center Finance & Information Management and heads the research group “IT-based Financial Management”. At the same time, Mr. Häckel works closely with the Project Group Business & Information Systems Engineering of Fraunhofer FIT.

Mr. Häckel studied Business Administration with a major in Business Informatics, Financial Engineering, Public Sector Management and Production and Logistics at the University of Augsburg. From 2004 to September 2010, Mr. Häckel worked as a research assistant at the Research Center Finance & Information Management, where he completed his doctoral thesis on “Beiträge zum integrierten Ertrags- und Risikomanagement im Rahmen einer wertorientierten Unternehmensführungwith “summa cum laude” in June 2010. In June 2015 Mr. Häckel habilitated at the Department of Information Systems Engineering & Financial Management (Prof. Dr. Hans Ulrich Buhl). At the same time, from May 2013 to September 2016, he represented a W2 professorship for Business Engineering with a focus on Finance, Operations and Information Management at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Augsburg. 

His research topics are particularly concerned with the development of methods and concepts for the control of digital value-creation networks and the evaluation of investments in information technology, while considering integrated opportunity and risk aspects. He particularly addresses the following areas of application:

  • Digitalization of production as part of Industry 4.0 (e.g. data-based business models, (systemic) risks in digital value-creation networks, transformation to a smart factory)
  • Business Technology Management (e.g. IT innovation management, analysis of potential of technology trends, evaluation of IT security technologies)
  • Financial decision support systems for the energy industry (e.g. intelligent control of plants for own energy production, innovative financing and insurance products for efficiency measures, risk management in critical infrastructures)

Mr. Häckel publishes his research results in renowned journals such as ACM SIGMIS Database, Business & Information Systems Engineering, Decision Support Systems (DSS), Energy Policy, Journal of Decision Systems or Journal of Credit Risk as well as at renowned conferences such as International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) or European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS). He is also strongly involved in applied research projects with companies. His practice partners include BMW Financial Services, Carl Zeiss, Hilti, Infineon Technologies, Nord/LB and ZF Friedrichshafen.
