Software-Cluster Creates the Infrastructure for Launching the Business Software of Tomorrow

22.02.2013
On 22 February 2013, Software AG in Saarbrücken (Germany) hosted the kick-off meeting for the project “Software Innovations for the Digital Company.”

The aim of the cooperation of 32 partners from industry and research is to create an infrastructure for the launch of business software services in the cloud that can be combined in new ways. The project is the last of four projects starting within the Software-Cluster that receive funding via the Leading-Edge Cluster Competition of the German Federal Government.

The joint project “Software Innovations for the Digital Company” (SINNODIUM) builds on the three ongoing projects within the framework of the Leading-Edge Cluster Competition, connects the various fields of research, and guides the overall project to an integrated conclusion. In practice, initial prototype solutions for the next generation of business software—“emergent software”—are developed that dynamically and flexibly work to make a variety of components from different manufacturers combinable, thus triggering a wave of innovation in digital companies across all sectors.

Within SINNODIUM, medium and large software companies therefore work together with research partners on general application scenarios for emergent business software in the areas of Smart Retail (trade), Smart Production (industry), and Smart Services (services and logistics).

The basis for this are platforms provided by the participating large companies as an infrastructure and development environment. Furthermore, small and medium software companies in the Software-Cluster and beyond will be capable of developing emergent software components, services, and tools for highly individualized business processes and marketing them internationally.

“The big German producers of enterprise software cooperate in the Software Cluster with innovative, specialized software houses,” said Dr. Wolfram Jost, CTO, Software AG. “The prototypical mutual ecosystem developed here is beneficial for each individual participant as well as for the future of the German software industry.”

The following Software-Cluster partners are involved in the project “Software Innovations for the Digital Company:” CAS Software AG, CyberForum e.V., DFKI Innovative Retail Laboratory , Empolis Information Management GmbH, Eyeled GmbH, Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE), Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITWM), German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), House of IT e.V., IHK Darmstadt Service GmbH, imc information multimedia communication AG, Insiders Technologies GmbH, intelligent views gmbh, John Deere European Technology Innovation Center, KOBIL Systems GmbH, Kompetenzzentrum Informatik Saarland, mineway GmbH, proALPHA Software AG, SAP AG, Scheer Group GmbH, Scheer Management GmbH, SIEDA GmbH, Sirrix AG security technologies, SmartFactoryKL e.V., Software AG, Software Technologie Initiative Kaiserslautern e.V., Start-up Office of TU & FH Kaiserslautern, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, Universität des Saarlandes, Urban Software Institute GmbH & Co. KG, vwd Vereinigte Wirtschaftsdienste AG.

The Software-Cluster projects “Foundations of Emergent Software” and “Process Innovations in the Software Industry” have been ongoing since 2010 and the project “Innovative Services in the Internet of the Future” since 2011. The foundations of “emergent software,” a new class of distributed, innovative information systems that emerge across companies through the interaction of individual components and services on the Internet, thus exhibiting a qualitatively higher performance, are being developed in these projects. The project “Process Innovations in the Software Industry” aims to promote the competitiveness of software companies through the development of business methods for the management of innovation projects. The findings from both projects form the basis for the corresponding research and development in the project “Innovative Services in the Internet of the Future” which researches and tests the sales of enterprise software services in the cloud.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
