Enterprise Platform and Integration Concepts

Research Group of Prof. Dr. h.c. Hasso Plattner

Prof. Plattner's research group focuses on the technical aspects of business software and the integration of different software systems to meet customer requirements. This involves studying the conceptual and technological aspects of systems for data management and business process support. In customer-centered business software development, the focus is on the users. Developing solutions tailored to user needs in a timely manner requires well-designed methods, tools, and software platforms.

Our activities are focused on the following research topics:
