Practice projects

Our principles

Innovation, wholeness and interdisciplinarity

Against the background of an increasingly competitive environment and aggravating general conditions, new complex questions and challenges arise for companies. Therefore, long-term solutions require novel and holistic approaches 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-, goal- 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.

Where is the focus?

Our foundation

The focus of our projects is on the investigation, the economic evaluation and the development of innovative solutions in various business areas.

The essential basis of our project activities is our professional expertise, which we build up within the scope of our research activities. Our professors and staff are currently working on the following research topics:

What procedure?

Our principles

Our employees act as “think tanks” in projects and develop innovative concepts and solutions for individual complex problems. In doing so, current scientific findings and methods of the scientific state-of-the-art are applied and specifically further developed. In this way, unique results are achieved with which your company can differentiate itself in the market and generate competitive advantages in the further course of the project.

Implementation and success of the projects are based on a holistic approach. Beginning with the identification of challenges, projects are carried out from the development of concepts to the monitoring of implementation and the achievement of sustainable market success. The continuous support and trustful cooperation guarantee the development and maintenance of competition-critical know-how for our customers. Cooperation is possible in all phases.

The levels business model, business processes, people, application systems, data & information and infrastructure are not independent of each other. An integrated view across all levels is therefore indispensable. In-depth, interdisciplinary knowledge combined with interface know-how between business and IT is essential. Our project teams are staffed with employees* with complementary qualifications from different areas that fit the project: Business administration, business informatics/ mathematics/ engineering, computer science, finance and information management, etc.
