Anwendungsfach Enterprise Computing

Enterprise computing in the broadest sense refers to the use of information technology of any kind in business. While in the past, the focus was primarily on the introduction and operation of mainframes and servers, today the focus is increasingly on the organizational embedding and use of very different IT systems such as customer relation management systems or decision support systems. Hence, we speak of socio-technical information systems or human-task-technology systems.

Similarly, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) classifies "enterprise computing" as a sub-discipline of "applied computing" with sub-topics such as

  • Business/IT Alignment & IT Governance
  • Business Process Management (BPM) & Business Rules
  • Enterprise Architecture & Enterprise Ontologies
  • Enterprise Modeling & Reference Modeling
  • Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems & Interoperability
  • IT Architectures, Service-oriented Architectures (SOA), & Event-driven Architecture (EDA)

The focus of the education at the Department of Computer Science is on Business Process Management and the application of IT systems in business, for example with ERP systems.
