Mr. Dellei’s Take on Stereotypes and His Source of Inspiration in the Industry
When it comes to stereotypes, Mr. Dellei believes that one must not allow them to shape his/her life. According to him, success comes from different sources and at different times to everybody. That’s why one must never give up on his/her dreams merely because they couldn’t fit into a stereotype. “The world goes forward because people are willing to think unconventionally, outside the box, thus igniting creativity and innovation. Without these aspects, the world would be a poorer

Mr. Dellei on the importance of R&D-According to Mr. Dellei, an IT-based company should never neglect the importance of R&D as it thrives on innovation. “Technology-based applications house both, the potential to improve the operations and security of IT, and information systems and the threat to disrupt such infrastructures. For instance, AI-based privacy enhancement and security applications are available in the market. On the other hand, AI is exploited by cybercriminals to override conventional security measures. Thus, a company providing services in these fields has no other option but to constantly research, develop, and utilize such technologies.” He stated.
Last year, the company pushed its R&D department to stay updated with all the latest industry trends. As of lately, the company has also been taking active participation in numerous R&D projects on emerging technologies like AI and VR.

The competitive environment encourages entrepreneurs to be creative, thereby strengthening the resilience of the economy.
Mr. Dellei’s Future Plans for Kerubiel-When it comes to Kerubiel’s plans for the future, Mr. Dellei wishes to make R&D a central part of the company’s operations. As Hungary has recently adopted its first modern AI strategy, the company’s main focus will be on AI and other related research projects.
Through Kerubiel, Mr. Dellei also aspires to establish fruitful connections with various experts in other fields. With this, he is hopeful that the company will bag national as well as international projects, thereby making an impact on a regional level. “Hopefully, our fresh and innovative, yet professional approach provides an opportunity to Kerubiel to become one of the most innovative leading company providing counseling to its clients in the CEE region.” He stated.
