 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The research of the Ghent University Management Information Systems (UGentMIS) research group
within EB08 concentrates on different lines of research: business modeling; business process
management; enterprise architecture, engineering, and systems; service science; and enterprise

The overarching research theme is conceptual modeling with as central research question, how to
(better) model the socially constructed world that surrounds us, with a focus on the enterprises and
other kinds of organizations and networks that engage in business or other kinds of economic
interactions, in order to increase our understanding of these artifacts and phenomena, to facilitate our
communication of this understanding, to enlarge our capability in analyzing problems and opportunities,
and in designing solutions and innovations, and to better engineer the systems, in particular those
relying on information and communication technologies, that are constructed to support and enhance
our socially constructed world.

Although we call ourselves an MIS research group, our research paradigms are more related to the
academic discipline of Business Informatics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_informatics), which
is more in line with the continental European tradition of researching information systems. The driver
for our research is the concept of Business/IT Alignment, i.e., how to make sure that value is created
from the application of information and communication technologies in business. Therefore our
research covers business, information and ICT aspects and addresses strategic, structural and
operational issues. The primary research methodology of the UGentMIS group is Design Science
Research (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Design_science_research).
