Scientific Scope:

Modern Enterprises rely on computer-based information systems, which comprise
hardware and software. Enterprise software applications or information systems are
increasingly complex, to match the also increasing competitiveness
and complexity of the markets and organizations environments. Enterprise software
supports business processes from the factory plant to the enterprise strategic
management, and even crosses the borders of an enterprise enabling integration
between business partners across a given business value chain.
Enterprise software includes today, not only the already common ERP, CRM, SCM
and, many other application types, but also Manufacturing Execution Systems,
Management Information Systems, Executive Decision Support Systems, and
Cyber-Physical Systems (Smart Industry), comprising software and dedicated
hardware designed together, bringing IoT into the enterprise. Each of these types of
systems support a specific business function, being their integration a major advantage inside the enterprise and across business partners in a
business value chain.

   - Enterprise Software and Systems Engineering
   - Tools, Techniques and Methodologies for Enterprise Systems Development
   - Business-ICT Alignment
