IE&IS research groups

Contact person: Jos Trienekens

The specializations of the Information Systems group are as follows:

  • Architecture/EIS. The cluster addresses research topics that deal with design of enterprise information systems at a high level of abstraction.
  • Business Process Management. The research is conducted against the insight that operational performance is most effectively managed in many domains by a focus on cross-functional business processes and the application of information technology.
  • Cross-Organizational Information Systems. Within the cluster a number of topics related to cross-organizational information systems is being investigated.
  • Process Mining. Research is concerned with the extraction of knowledge about a (business) process from its process execution logs. Process Mining strives to gain insight into various perspectives, such as the process (or control flow) perspective, the performance, data, and organizational perspective.
  • Software Management. The Software Management cluster focuses on topics related to the development and implementation of (embedded) software and information systems.
  • Healthcare. The focus of the Healthcare cluster is on the application of information systems in the healthcare domain, in particular to improve the safety, effectiveness, and efficiency of operational processes within and across hospitals, health and treatment centers, private clinics, and other medical institutes.
