The Institute for Business Informatics - Information Engineering investigates the application of information technology in organizations with the aim of describing, explaining, forecasting and shaping its structure and behaviour as well as the associated management tasks on an individual and organizational level.

Our focus lies on the management of IS/IT-based innovations and their benefits over their entire life cycle. This includes questions on strategy development and strategic planning, on the generation and evaluation of transformative innovations, on their introduction and acceptance in organizations and by individuals, as well as on their use and ongoing benefit optimization.
