Driving Digital Change

Unlocking success in digital transformations
The Chair of Business Informatics, Processes and Systems researches in the field of digital transformation. The focus is on people and their place in the digital world, what is their position, how can this task be learned, which technical solutions lead to an improvement in productivity, what are the demands on systems and what are the possible ecological consequences?

Building bridges between science and practice
Our network of interdisciplinary and international cooperation partners helps to prepare our economy and society for changing living and working conditions, to strengthen competitiveness and innovative power and to actively shape digital change.

Challenging research on an international level
Numerous research and joint projects with highly competitive funding programs for science document our innovative strength. We support the transfer of knowledge to industry and transfer our research findings into practice. Concrete applications are manifested in our outstanding research centres, which are an international centre of attraction for research and application. We seek open exchange, advocate unrestricted open access to publications and promote networked science.
