Welcome

We create value from information.   About Us

We do so by:

  • developing methods to generate insights about organizations and customers from small and big data
  • generating empirical knowledge of individual and group behavior in markets
  • designing digital systems for organizations and the society
  • shaping the digital transformation of organizations and society.
 

With 7 professors  and associated research groups we contribute to research, education and innovation in the fields of information systems and marketing.

Successful Completion of the Designing Interactive Systems Capstone Project “Digital Nearshoring Life Cycle” @ EnBW
Successful Completion of the Designing Interactive Systems Capstone Project "Digital Nearshoring Life Cycle" @ EnBW

The end of the summer semester also marks the successful end of this year’s Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) capstone project, which was conducted virtually as part of the DIS master lecture held by Dr. Ulrich Gnewuch. Over a period of two months, 21 students worked in teams on a real-world challenge provided by our industry partner EnBW. The overall goal and topic of this year’s project was to create innovative design solutions for supporting the Digital Nearshoring Life Cycle of remote employees. Each team worked on a different phase of the lifecycle (e.g., attracting and hiring, onboarding, working remotely, offboarding).

Citizen Workshop “Transparent Forecasting Systems“ | 16.8., 5-6 PM
Citizen Workshop "Transparent Forecasting Systems" | 16.8., 5-6 PM

Predictions for society affect the future of individuals, households and institutions and can shape societies and lead to sustainability and prosperity. However, current forecasts often lack transparency. As part of the project, we are working with citizens to design a publicly accessible and intuitively usable transparent forecast system using the example of COVID-19 forecasts. The starting point is the NowCastHub forecast system, which is already publicly accessible: http://www.covid19nowcasthub.de/.

We invite interested citizens to participate in our citizen workshop on August 16th, 5-6PM at KD2Lab. Further information is available on https://wir-forschen.digital/.

New Publication in BISE: “Multiexperience”
New Publication in BISE: "Multiexperience"

The Business & Information Systems Engineering (BISE) journal has published a new catchword article titled “Multiexperience” by Ulrich Gnewuch, Marcel Ruoff, Christian Peukert, and Alexander Maedche. The article aims to build a bridge between the new term of “multiexperience” (MUX) and existing research in the Information Systems (IS) field. The authors shed light on the concept of MUX and propose a framework with two dimensions – devices (e.g., PCs, smartphones, smart speakers, VR headsets) and modalities (e.g., speech, touch, typing). They also identify three different guiding paths toward MUX and propose future research opportunities for the IS community.
