BSFZ seal

The basis for sustainability, technological progress, innovation and economic growth is regular and ongoing investment in research and development (R&D), which is precisely why R&D activities are so important in Germany. In the course of this, the Certification Body for Research Grants (German: 'Bescheinigungsstelle Forschungszulage’, or ‘BSFZ’ for short) awards its seal exclusively to companies that are eligible to claim funding through the research grant.

PROMATIS received the seal for the following projects:

  • Development of a method and an associated software system for building and using a digital real-time image of the entire company organization, including business processes and strategies (2022)
  • Development of a cloud service for the consolidation of distributed ERP systems based on a generically structured data lakehouse (2022)
  • Development of a method and the associated software components for the application of Enterprise Governance Management (2024)

Oracle is the world's largest provider of business software with the most complete product range on the market and the highest innovative power. For more than two decades, PROMATIS has been closely associated with the national and international organization Oracle.

Sustainable success cooperations

As an early spin-off company of the Institute AIFB of today's Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), PROMATIS maintains close contacts to research and teaching of diverse research centers in Germany and abroad. Initial joint research projects have developed into a living cooperation, which today forms the core of PROMATIS innovation management. In addition to cooperative research work, the cooperation also includes joint teaching events and the exchange of qualified employees (doctoral students, master's students) within the framework of research and industrial projects.

Research focus on business processes

State-of-the-art digitization technologies, AI, Big Data and sophisticated analysis and monitoring technologies form the basis for creative and future-oriented developments around the topic of business processes.

Part of the cooperation is Horus Endeavor, an innovation partnership of the Institute AIFB of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Institute for Business Informatics of the Wilhelms University Muenster, the FZI Karlsruhe and the Konstanz Institute for Process Control (KIPS) of the University of Applied Sciences Konstanz (HTWG) with the software companies PROMATIS and Horus.
