New information and communication technologies (ICT) not only support established business processes, but are increasingly triggering disruptive innovations in business processes and products. In a globally distributed economy, the speed and agility with which companies can adapt to new technologies and organizational changes determine their long-term success. The Business Informatics research centre investigates new information and communication technologies and analyses their business potential in cooperation with regional, national and international industry and research partners. The re-organisation of business processes and products is the focus of the technology-driven, applied research in the research centre. The Business Informatics research centre is particularly interested in the impact of new "enabling technologies" (e.g. IoT, Blockchain, etc.) in the areas of Extended Product and Extended Enterprise.
The main research areas of the Business Informatics Research Center can be subdivided into the areas of technologies, methods, organization and concepts. In these areas, the following aspects are currently investigated:
Live-Learning Session: the Research and Innovation Strategy of Burgenland
Participation is possible for all interested parties:
14th October 2020 kicks-off the Live Learning Sessions, with a virtual study tour of Burgenland. In
this tour participants are expected to be introduced to Burgenland’s Innovation Eco-System and the Research and Innovation Strategy of Burgenland. Stakeholders from across the triple-helix will be presenting interesting innovation use-cases from Burgenland, such as the Burgenland Green Energy Lab. The event is part of the A-Ring project.
Participation is free - please find more informations (agenda, registration, ...) here.
SIGEVO Impact Award
We are happy to inform you that Mr. Patrick Spettel, the former doctoral student of Prof. Dr. habil. Hans-Georg Beyer, today won the Award for Computer Science by the University Society Ulm . He received this award for his doctoral thesis completed in 2019 with summa cum laude. Congratulations!
SIGEVO Impact Award
The paper "Comparing Results of 31 Algorithms from the Black-Box Optimization Benchmarking BBOB-2009" (Nikolaus Hansen, Anne Auger, Raymond Ros, Steffen Finck, Petr Pošík) was awarded the SIGEVO Impact Award at GECCO 2020. The SIGEVO Impact Award recognizes papers that were published in the GECCO conference 10 years earlier and which are both highly cited and deemed to be seminal by the SIGEVO Executive Committee. Congratulations to Dr.-Ing. Steffen Finck.
Before the summer break, the Business Informatics research center will hold two parallel online workshops on "Renewable Energy Sources in Industry" and the "Circular Economy" on July 31 from 10:00 to 12:00. Registrations are still welcome.
