Business Informatics

All business and industry areas are increasingly digitalised. Digital solutions have the critical properties of security, safety, quality and economically and ecologically purposeful functionality. Hence, their developement and evolution requires distinguished experts who are in the lead. They must have the capability to design and lead the technical implemention of innovative socio-technical systems and at the same time dispose of profound knowledge of business and economic aspects. Besides solid education and competences in computer science, experts in business informatics have the same for business, project and general management. They use methods such as enterprise modeling to ensure the critical properties of digital business models and the necessary technical systems.
