Welcome to the
Institute for Information Systems (iisys)

The Institute for Information Systems (iisys) is the central research institution for information technology at Hof University. It is funded by the Bavarian government, the Oberfrankenstiftung (foundation in Upper Franconia) and the European Union. The institute’s research activities are focused on integrated information systems for business processes. Three integration dimensions are examined:

  • Vertical integration as process of linking information systems from the strategic to the operational level.
  • Horizontal integration as process of linking information systems on the same level within one company or among different companies.
  • Data integration develops a uniform method for the administration of different types of data such as unstructured texts as well as structured relational and spatial data.
