Our principles

Innovation, wholeness and interdisciplinarity

Against the backdrop of an increasingly competitive environment and tightening framework conditions, new complex questions and challenges arise for companies. For long-term solutions, therefore, new and holistic approaches are needed within the framework of sustainable and value-oriented corporate management.

Due to our proven expertise at the interface of financial management, information management and business informatics as well as the ability to combine methodical know-how at the highest scientific level with a customer-, target- and solution-oriented approach, the core competence center FIM and the project group business informatics of Fraunhofer FIT support companies from various industries in applied research projects.
