Center for Very Large Business Applications (CVLBA) at Technische Universität München
The Center for Very Large Business Applications (CVLBA) in Munich was founded in November 2006 as a research project at the Chair for Information Systems (Prof. Dr. Helmut Krcmar), Technische Universität München (TUM). The project is funded by the SAP AG who also funds Centers for Very Large Business Applications at Otto-von-Guericke Universität in Magdeburg and at the Hasso Plattner Institut (HPI) in Potsdam. The Center performs research in the field of very large business applications which are an essential part of today's heterogeneous system landscapes. A variety of research topics are investigated in Ph. D. thesis, that cover methodological, technical, organization and community related topics. There is a close collaboration with the SAP University Competence Center (UCC) at TUM, which is also a part of the Chair for Information Systems. Amongst the topical areas at CVLBA@TUM are performance issues of very large business systems, software engineering issues esp device integration in health care, adoption of new SaaS solutions in the market, information visibility ind supply networks and the use of open innovation and idea communities for VLBA via the SAPIENS-initiative (www.sapiens.info).
Our teaching is designed to meet the needs of gifted young people who are looking for practise-oriented training as IT engineers rather than a „traditional" computer science program. We are engaged in top-notch academic research - also serving leading players in the business world. Based in Potsdam (Germany) and Palo Alto (USA), we offer students ideal conditions and a fascinating study environment. Professor Hasso Plattner - co-founder of the global software company SAP and chairman of its supervisory board - maintains a high level of personal commitment to the project.
Very Large Business Applications Lab Magdeburg (VLBA Lab)
In November 2006, the VLBA Lab Magdeburg (English Website| German Website) was founded as an organizational unit within the Business Informatics group of the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg. It was bound to the Department of Technical and Business Information Systems (ITI) in April 2009. Initially started with seven scientific staff members, the research group is primarily engaged in designing, developing, and operating very large business application systems and system landscapes. SAP and T-Systems, vital partners in the context of the SAP University Competence Center (UCC), intensify their commitment at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg. That way current industry and business problems find their way into innovative long-term research. The VLBA Lab is one of SAP's Center for Very Large Business Applications besides Technische Universität München and Hasso Plattner Institute Potsdam.
