BPM Round Table Baden

Description

The Institute for Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods (AIFB) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is well known for its service and BPM research. The research groups “eOrganization” (Prof. Tai) and “Business Information Systems” (Prof. Oberweis) are contributing to the BPM Round Table.

The eOrganization research group studies BPM from a service-oriented and cloud computing perspective. Focus is on qualitative aspects of BPM solutions (such as performance, scalability), and on architecture of BPM platforms (most notably, in the Cloud). A systems-oriented approach is taken, aiming at prototype development and insight generation through experiments.

The Business Information Systems research group addresses methods and models for BPM and service-oriented workflow management. The focus thereby lies on the development of novel methods and languages for modelling and analyzing process models. Other current research areas address the design of secure mobile applications and the development of BPM software tools.
