Our report “Enterprise Platform and Integration Concepts Research at HPI” has been published in the December issue of the SIGMOD Record. In this paper, we introduce the EPIC research group at HPI with its sub groups Autonomous Data Management, Enterprise Software Engineering and Data-Driven Decision Support.
The Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI), academically structured as the independent Faculty of Digital Engineering at the University of Potsdam, unites computer science research and teaching with the advantages of a privately financed institute and a tuition-free study program. Founder and namesake of the institute is the SAP co-founder Hasso Plattner, who also heads the Enterprise Platform and Integration Concepts (EPIC) research center which focuses on the technical aspects of business software with a vision to provide the fastest way to get insights out of enterprise data. Founded in 2006, the EPIC combines three research groups comprising autonomous data management, enterprise software engineering, and data-driven decision support.
