As part of the German state of Baden-Württemberg’s business software initiative, Fraunhofer IAO’s Business-Software-as-a-Service living lab offers small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) the opportunity to experience and try out a wide range of Software-as-a-Service products live, enabling them to quickly work up new ideas for creating their own solutions.
Amid the current hype surrounding cloud services, blown out of all proportion by the media, the living lab aims to offer small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) the chance to make a realistic assessment of their own individual situations and become familiar with the technical potential on offer. Working together with Fraunhofer IAO’s cloud experts in individual or group seminars, SMEs can test existing solutions and develop their own tailored approaches. The living lab is aimed both at end users and also at prospective operators of cloud solutions.
Alongside the reliability and operability of cloud solutions, one pressing concern is how to choose suitable deployment and service models, and another is the question of how easily solutions can be integrated into existing IT environments. The Business-Software-as-a-Service living lab offers a practical overview of the various possibilities currently available and provides a venue to try out both commercial and free products. Collaborating with our experts helps companies generate tailored usage scenarios that in turn provide a basis for mapping out cloud products’ added value, as well as their risks.
Fraunhofer IAO is providing three labs – Usability of Business Software; Dynamic Process Management – Monitoring and Optimizing Processes; and Business-Software-as-a-Service – to companies wishing to experience and try out available software live, and work up new ideas to create their own solutions.
Living Labs BW is a new line of funding within “smart businessIT”, an initiative that aims to further strengthen Baden-Württemberg’s position as an IT location with particular emphasis on business software.

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics
Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...
The historic first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes far outside our galaxy opened a new window to understanding the universe. A...
A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
