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: First diode for magnetic fields

Innsbruck quantum physicists have constructed a diode for magnetic fields and then tested it in the laboratory. The device, developed by the research groups led by the theorist Oriol Romero-Isart and the experimental physicist Gerhard Kirchmair, could open up a number of new applications.

Electric diodes are essential electronic components that conduct electricity in one direction but prevent conduction in the opposite one. They are found at the...

Im Focus: Nonstop Tranport of Cargo in Nanomachines

Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.

Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
