OrbEEt analyses the usage of buildings with respect to their energy consumption. BOC developed a business process modelling environment enabling the simulation of the usage of the buildings to indicate the energy consumption.
Occupant Aware, Intelligent and Adaptive Enterprises
Adapt4EE analyses the usage of buildings in a similar way like OrBEEt, but focuses on the influencing the design phase of building construction, whereas OrbEEt focuses on the usage of existing buildings.
Immigration Policy 2.0 developed social media tools and platforms to ease the administrative processes that are relevant for legal residents. BOC developed special modelling tools, where processes are represented in a simplified way, suitable for citizens with low ICT background.
LD-CAST realized smart business process portals for Chamber of Commerce’s that support the cross-national business collaboration for founding companies in Eastern European Countries. BOC developed knowledge-based process modelling tools for public administration.
Process Oriented eGovernment
FIT realized smart business process modelling for public administrations in a similar way like LD-CAST, but not focusing on Chamber of Commerce’s but on Ministries and Municipalities.
CloudSocket develops the new Cloud paradigm of Business Process as a Service (BPaaS) assisting in business and IT Cloud alignment. BOC develops business process modelling tools that analyze business processes according their Cloud Readiness level and support their transformation into workflows in the Cloud.
MODAClouds developed a common configuration layer for any Platform as a Service (PaaS). BOC tested, adapted and improved the project results with the PaaS infrastructure of ADONIS® Cloud.
MOST combined conceptual and semantic modelling for Software Engineering by merging UML and ontologies. BOC realized a modelling tool to semantically enrich concept models such as UML.
BREIN introduced an agent-based framework to optimize grid computing. A smart middleware using distributed intelligent information systems was used to coordinate computer resources in an optimized way. BOC provided a business process modelling environment to support the business and IT alignment from high level business processes to low level technical resources.
AKOGRIMO introduced knowledge-based mobile grid computing, where ICT resources for grid computing are coordinated in a distributed mobile network. BOC introduced a knowledge-based business process modelling environment to support business and IT alignment from high level processes to mobile network related settings.
