FIT is now official academic partner of Pharo Consortium

FIT became an official academic partner of Pharo Consortium. This news has been advised on the Consortium pages.

pharoOur membership will help our students, teachers and researchers via better access to events, knowledge and experience of academic-industrial communities developing pure object technology.

For us it is then the possibility of honorary membership commitment to be part of a contribution to this action.

Cooperation with ForMetis is underway

CCM shares with ForMetis enthusiasm for innovation in Enterprise Engineering and IT technology based on the methodology DEMO. At present, we are running those joint projects:

  • Marek Skotnica – bachelor thesis focused on the implementation of the Action Model to DEMO Engine developed ForMetis.
  • Finalizing education-simulation portal (CCM participates in beta testing).
  • From next week we start a project focusing on the application DEMO in Governance, Risk & Compliance.

We visited the University of Antwerp!

Robert Pergl and Martin Podloucký last week visited the Department of Management Information Systems, Faculty of Applied Economics, University of Antwerp. With the department represented by prof. John Verelst we found a number of very synergistic with the CCM issues, especially enterprise engineering and software engineering based on conceptual approach.

prof. Jan Verelst

On the department are working on a big breakthrough in software engineering over the past several decades, perhaps: applying the theory of normalized Systems (NS) on the sustainable development of large information systems. Although sustainability is a traditional theme, approach, what we saw in Antwerp it is unique in that it is exact and provable. From this approach arise exact criteria to judge whether a particular software system is sustainable or not and in what order to increase the number of necessary changes in the system over time.

The theory is practically applied in a spin-off company NSX, which has developed a code generator based on ANN theory. Information systems developed using this technology are already being used successfully in large Belgian firms and government sectors.

Finally, the visit was formulated topics for cooperation between Antwerp and CCM in the field of education, science and research and cooperation on code generators. The research and application topics will be addressed in the form of student theses, doctoral and postdoctoral topics. Watch page for more details.

CCM is a part of the TACR project team

A joint effort of FIT and Profinit was successful in applying for a project funded by the Technology Agency of Czech Republic. The project is named “Tools for Automation of Quality Assurance of Vast Business Intelligence Systems and Data Warehouses”.

CCM is a part of the FIT project team. Our part are several conceptual topics dealing with analysis, design and also implementation. Check our web pages for more updates soon.
