Integration of Business Information Systems (IBIS)

Integration of Business Information Systems (IBIS) is a research unit at the SoftLab group in the University Carlos III of Madrid. We work at applying cutting-edge research based on Semantic Technologies, Software-as-a-Service and Cloud Computing in real-world scenarios with potential impact in solving industry problems from an applied research standpoint.

In our research unit we believe that Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) and Business-to-Business (B2B) are key domains where emerging technologies can be applied in order to bridge the gap between the fundamental work yielded by international and scientific research projects and the application-oriented challenges of industry market-driven problems.

It is our mission to look for the excellence in research in these areas yielding accurate and sound solutions. This is achieved but is not limited to using the aforementioned technologies for the following research lines:

  • Integration of Business Information Systems through Semantic Technologies
  • Using Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based on Multi-Tenant Architectures for EAI and B2B Integration
  • Intelligent Expert Systems based on Artificial Intelligence Techniques
  • Formal Methods for Business Process Modeling
  • Cloud Computing
  • Biomedical Informatics

Since the Web is moving towards becoming a global repository of Cloud-based services, we envisage applying our expertise in building software components to make service integration and added-value a reality taking our major requirements from business scenarios based research projects that are the main cornerstones of our current research efforts.
