Heinz Nixdorf founded the "laboratory for pulse technology", "Labor für Impulstechnik" in 1952. The company grew into a global player "Nixdorf Computer AG" with 25,500 employees in 1986. Nixdorf was the pioneer of the decentralized data processing. Its innovative theme "At-Work", "Computer am Arbeitsplatz" encouraged small and medium-sized enterprises to process their data electronically. He died at the CeBIT in Hanover on 17 March 1986. Cosowi commemorates the 25th anniversary of his death by dedicating this lecture to Heinz Nixdorf and acquainting a young audience in particular with the life and works of Germany's most important computer pioneer.
