Do you ever wonder how you can design and evolve the software systems we use in servers, laptops, smartphones, and wearables? How an organisation can make effective use of the sheer amount of data and derive actionable insights? Or how you can model, extract, and implement the business processes that make organisations work?

Succesfully aligning ICT with business processes

Organisations often run into problems when implementing new ICT-systems. It is vital for them to rely on professionals who do not only know technologies but are also able to implement them in an organisation. Both technological and organisational insights are indispensable for successfully aligning ICT with business processes.

Combines information and computing science

The Business Informatics programme focuses on the design and use of theories, methods, techniques, and tools from information and computing sciences, and on the application of these in business and organisational domains. This requires a holistic approach that considers the organisation as a whole to ensure that business and ICT are properly aligned.
