The Research Group Electronic Business is part of the School of Business and Economics at RWTH Aachen University and is closely associated with the Computer, Learning and Teaching Space (CLeVer) of the Faculty (see link in the navigation bar).
In research and teaching we focus on diverse aspects
of Electronic Business which generally means the electronic support
of inter-organizational business processes through information
technology. 50 years ago -- at the early stages of electronic
data processing -- companies began to reorganize and automate
their inter-organizational business processes. The broad diffusion
of the Internet has accelerated this process and further opportunities
for automating inter-organizational business processes arose.
From a scientific point of view we are trying to understand how
the organization of economic activities affects Electronic Business
and vice versa. Ultimately this will enable us to better
design and manage inter-organizational information systems (IOIS).
