The Department of Business Information Systems / Very Large Business Applications (VLBA) of the University of Oldenburg has, as a scientific initiator a major focus on the contemplation of corporation-wide organisational, cross-organisational, and inter-organisational information systems with a focus on Business Intelligence Solutions.

In this framework, several courses at the university and at the academy of cooperative education (Berufsakademie) have been carried out and numerous theses (Bachelor’s, Master’s, Ph. D.) have been conducted. As well as other standard solutions SAP BW has been a major focal point within these courses and theses.

The department is affiliated with the SAP UCC and the SAP BI Roundtable. Thus the latest technologies in the SAP environment are available for research and teaching. Through extensive cooperation and exchange with universities around the world, as well as the employment of various guest Ph.
