Description:
Information Systems: The research field is development and use of computerised systems in organisational contexts. The research approach is empirical and experimental. The types of results include: Theoretical frameworks as contributions to understanding the field; Methodologies and techniques as contributions to guiding practical action; Changes as contributions to improving practice within the field. The research combines an interest in software systems with an interest in the organisational issues of information systems lately supplemented with an interest in human-centred issues. The research is based on and makes contributions to the intersection between software engineering (as traditionally known within computer science) and information systems (as traditionally known within business administration); lately this has been supplemented with human-computer interaction. Database and Programming Technology: Driven by the continued advances in hardware technologies, by the diffusion of the Internet, and by the increasing complexity of software systems, the areas of database management and programming languages and environments are faced with abundant research challenges. Today's software systems manage large amounts of traditional and non-traditional data, including temporal, spatial, spatio-temporal, dimensional, multimedia, and semi-structured data. The research objective is to develop technologies that meet programming and data management needs posed by software systems in general and by data-intensive applications, in particular. In the area of databases, the research relates to business intelligence, including data warehousing and on-line analytical processing, and to database integrity. In addition, it relates to temporal, spatial, spatio-temporal, and mobile databases, including conceptual modelling and database design, data models, query processing, indexing, and applications.

Description:
Research Group Profile Systems development and organisational implementation Organizational background Research group belongs to Department of Information Systems of Agder University College, that has more than 8000 students and 850 teaching and administrative staff. It is one of the largest University Colleges in Norway . The University College offers a wide variety of study programmes within Business and Economics, Engineering and Technology, the Humanities, Mathematics, Nursing, Teacher Education, Fine Arts and more. Research objectives System development and organisational implementation are core activities in the information systems area. These activities are critical for information systems success. Research shows that a large percentage of software development projects are failing or in trouble. A better understanding of the software development and organisational implementation processes and possibilities for their improvement are thus of vital importance to the information systems field. Major research themes Systems development process improvement and methodological aspects Object-oriented development, modelling and methodologies The relationships between IT and organizational change, and different perspectives for analyzing this relationship.

Description:
The interests of the Information Systems Engineering (ISee) group center around IT-supported supply of information in organisations. In particular, the group seeks to advance theory and practice of business and information systems development. This includes methods, models and tools for all stages of the information systems life-cycle, as well as organisational and architectural issues. Particular focus is put on the early phases of the information systems life-cycle. At present the work of the ISEE group include themata such as on enterprise modeling in particular business process modeling, requirements engineering in particular requirements interdependencies, systems development methodology adaptation, e-commerce standardization issues, information systems for strategic decision making data warehousing, enterprise application integration, and information systems for healthcare. The ISee group is currently involved in the following joint research projects VITA Nova - process-oriented systems integration in healthcare (http://www.ida.his.se/ida/research/vitanova/index.htm), MobiS@ams - mobile IT in healthcare ( http://www.lime.ki.se/mobisams ), Serviam - service-oriented architectures ( www.serviam.se ) and Interop European network of excellence.

Description:
The research group information engineering (InfoEng) was established in 2002 at School of Engineering, is led by Professor Kurt Sandkuhl, and currently has 13 members (7 PhD students, 1 full Professor, 3 Assistant Professors, and 2 Research Assistants). Information engineering (IE) can be defined as the application of an integrated set of techniques for the planning, analysis, design, and implementation of information systems and infrastructures for enterprises and distributed organisations. IE is closely interrelated to software engineering, focusing on the information aspects of an information & communication infrastructure. The research group is responsible for the master program “Information Engineering”, which includes courses in information and enterprise modelling, software engineering methods, distributed applications or database systems and trends. Enterprise Modelling, being one of InfoEng’s focus areas, is working on various research topics in the areas of enterprise modelling, ontology engineering, competence modelling and model based software engineering. Since September 2006, the research group is part of the Centre for Evolving IT in Networked Organisations (CENIT). CENIT is a joint activity of Jönköping International Business School and School of Engineering, consists of the Informatics department of the Business School and the Information Engineering group of School of Engineering, and currently has 32 members in the co-located facilities in the Business School. Main purpose is to concentrate the IT competence of Jönköping University in a single organisation unit in order to create a research environment with substantial critical mass, to offer attractive education programs on bachelor and master level and to provide an improved environment for PhD education. JU closely cooperates with Fraunhofer ISST (Germany) and with the industry within a number of externally funded reseach projects such as MAPPER, InfoFlow, MediaILOG and KOMO (see http://infoeng.hj.se/research/research.php).
