The software systems of the future will be characterized by widely distributed, mobile, even ubiquitous use; by the seamless interaction between physical and digital services, data and things; and by continuous adaptation to a rapidly evolving technology and business context. IT systems that are up to these challenges enable digital enterprises to not just cope with frictional changes in their markets, but to take advantage of new business opportunities as they emerge. In research and industry projects with partners across Europe, paluno develops scientific, yet pragmatic approaches to engineer such complex software systems – for the infrastructures of the future as well as the application landscapes of today. paluno’s research and transfer paradigm encourages mutal benefit from basic research, applied research and bilateral industry cooperations. Our research teams join competencies covering all phases and layers of software engineering, and bring in experience from application domains as diverse as insurance, automotive, health, energy, and logistics.
