Brief description

Business informatics deals with company and inter-company information and communication systems (information systems for short) in business and administration as well as, with increasing penetration, in private households. Business informatics focuses on the relationship between people, tasks and technology. Information systems are socio-technical systems in which people and machines perform tasks in a cooperative manner. Business informatics therefore faces major tasks in the area of ​​the development and application of theories, concepts, models, methods and tools for the analysis, design and use of these information systems. Here, approaches from business administration, partly from economics and computer science, are not only integrated, but also expanded and supplemented with their own approaches. In addition, information and communication technologies always have an impact on society, which is also the focus of business informatics.
