Welcome ... the department Business Information Systems / Very Large Business Applications (VLBA).

The scope of research and teaching covers large corporation-wide business and business-to-business (b2b) information systems. The VLBA department also focuses on operational environmental information systems (BUIS), business intelligence (BI) and big data. We work closely with the Institute of Informatics OFFIS e.V. in various research projects (e.g. NetzDatenStrom and enera) in energy and smart city contexts regarding questions and applications that concerns data science, Internet of Things and Industry 4.0.

On our website, we present individual research topics and information on selected national and international projects. 

We are looking forward to your interest and inquiries regarding co-operation, further projects, academic thesis, etc.

26.01.2023: Neues Zukunftlabor Wasser

Das Zentrum für digitale Innovationen Niedersachsen (ZDIN) ist um ein Zukuftslabor reicher. Im ZUKUNFTSLABOR WASSER wird die Abteilung Wirtschaftsinformatik/VLBA der Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg am Einsatz intelligenter Systeme und neuer digitaler Methoden im Wassermanagement forschen und netzwerken. Wir konnten auch den Oldenburgisch-Ostfriesischer Wasserverband (OOWV) als Praxispartner gewinnen.

Zentrale Aspekte des Zukunftslabors Wasser sind der Einsatz intelligenter Systeme und neuer digitaler Methoden im Wassermanagement im Hinblick auf die Versorgungs- und Qualitätssicherheit der Ressource Wasser. Hierzu zählen die Anwendungen von Machine Learning und Big Data Analytics im Bereich der Wasserwirtschaft, der Ausbau integrierter Sensorik und digital vernetzter Systeme für eine gesicherte, effektive Datenerfassung und die Möglichkeit der Verbesserung von Interoperabilität und Standardisierung sowie Optimierungsansätze aus modellbasierten Analysen.


25.01.2023: TIPP research project officially begins

On January 1st, 2023, the research project TIPP (Transparency in Pig Production) officially began, with participation from the University of Oldenburg, University of Göttingen, Veterinary School Hannover, OFFIS Institute, Thünen Institute and the Chamber of Agriculture of Lower Saxony. Yesterday, the grant for the project was handed over.

The main objective of TIPP is to improve traceability and transparency along the supply chain of pigs through the testing and development of blockchain-based systems. The project will focus on understanding the challenges and opportunities that blockchain technology presents for the pig industry, and will strive to develop solutions that can be applied in practice.

The research team is made up of experts from various fields such as veterinary medicine, IT, and agricultural economics, who will work together to address the complex challenges facing the pig industry today. The project will also involve collaboration with industry partners to ensure that the solutions developed are practical and can be easily implemented in real-world scenarios.

The TIPP project aims to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the supply chain while ensuring food safety and traceability. The project will also provide valuable insights for other industries that are looking to implement blockchain technology in their supply chains.


25.11.2022: ICTA-EMoS Conference brings experts together


From 24 to 25 November 2022, the 1st International Conference on Technological Advancement in Embedded and Mobile Systems (ICTA-EMoS), held at the Arusha International Conference Center (AICC) in Tanzania, successfully opened the series of bi-annual scientific and technological conferences planned for the future. The conference was organized by the Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology, Arusha, Tanzania in collaboration with the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Germany and all implementing partner institutions from the Centre of Excellence for ICT in East Africa (CENIT@EA).

The first ICTA- EMoS Conference provided a hybrid platform for academia, industry, and policymakers to strengthen their ties for strong regional development and integration. Participants at the conference made ample use of this with inspiring keynote speeches, tutorials, and scientific workshops.

At the core of the conference, 78 scientific articles were presented by their authors orally or in poster presentations. Like the whole conference, the papers dealt with four major topics: Smart Systems Development, Artificial Intelligence Tools and Applications, Ethics in Information Systems and Cognitive Informatics and Wireless and Mobile Computing. The ICTA-EMoS conference received articles from all over the world, from Europe, Africa, Asia, North America or South America, that had gone through rigorous reviews leading up to the conference.

The Vice Chancellors of the partner universities of the Academic Consortium of dSkills@EA from EAC personally participated or were represented in the ICTA-EMoS conference. The organizers welcomed representatives from the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, the University of University of Technology and Arts of Byumba in Rwanda; Moi University in Kenya and Kabale University in Uganda. Additionally, from the region the University of Juba in South Sudan and the University of Burundi were also in attendance.

The conference was organised within the framework of the project Digital Skills for an Innovative East African Industry (dSkills@EA) and received strong support from the dSkills@EA implementing partners institutions EAC, IUCEA, DAAD, GIZ who also participated in the conference. The conference was further supported through generous sponsorships from industry partners in East Africa and Germany.
