We research socio-technical information systems in the digital transformation

Paderborn University with its Information Society University is one of the leading locations for business informatics in the German-speaking world. We analyse and design socio-technical information systems in the digital transformation. With five fully developed chairs in the core area of business informatics, we consider all levels of action - from digitally networked people and groups to digital organisations and networks to digital markets. The analysis of structured and unstructured data is also a particular focus.

„As one of the largest institutes for business informatics in Germany, we research how new information technologies can contribute to economic and social progress.”

Prof. Dr. Guido Schryen,
Spokesperson of the Department

Our research

As an interface discipline, we analyse how new information technologies can contribute to competitive advantages and social improvements. In interdisciplinary and international teams, we analyse the phenomena of digital transformation holistically and see ourselves as thought leaders in the digital society.
