My name is Martin Himken and I’m a consultant with a passion for getting things done. I started as a certified IT specialist in systems integration, worked with small companies to enterprise size customers and finally led my own team for a few years. When my wife gave birth to my youngest, I decided to take a step back into consulting. Check out my employer on LinkedIn (top right). LinkedIn and X (formerly Twitter) are my preferred methods of contact.

I really like to study new technologies and try to evaluate and test them (“get my hands dirty”) whenever I have the time. This has improved my overall knowledge of how technologies work and – in the end – helped my customers.
For a short list of things I really know best, visit the dedicated subpage:

  • Intune
  • Microsoft Configuration Manager (formerly SCCM)
  • Endpoint Management
  • Endpoint Security (EM+S, Defender for Endpoint …)


I play video games whenever I have some free time.
I also love music, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that there’s almost no major genre that I don’t listen to. Unfortunately, I have never picked up an instrument myself – unless you count my keystrokes as music.

About this website

Founded in 2004 as a school experiment, the name is related to the founders whose names start with Ma and Ni – you add my Ma and you get manima.de. Well, it stuck and here we are. Now the site serves me as a platform to share my knowledge and thoughts.

This website has undergone several revisions over the years, adding more and more technology to my skill set. This has helped me a lot to learn about different technologies. IIS, PHP, HTML, WordPress, Mail – especially about hardening said services and technologies. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t proud of what it is today.
