The institute is a competence centre for the application of information systems in companies. It is the bridge between international research and development and actual application in companies.
The institute is expanding its competence in information systems by carrying out technology projects with international partners. Thus, it can ensure that it keeps up with international research and development. Building on this competence, the institute is carrying out application projects in cooperation with IT companies and IT departments of large companies. The aim of these projects is to develop new services and products which directly improve the management and use of data in medium-sized companies. IT companies are considered as multipliers so that many companies can make use of the institute’s competence.
