Today’s health care system is faced with changing needs and demands caused by an increasingly aging society, growing planning and documentation requirements and complex methods of treatment. Over the years, ICT support has become a key aspect of health care politics. With its close-to-the-market research focus on e-Health, Salzburg Research seeks to facilitate workflows and procedures of the health care segment.
Information and communication technologies and technological innovations have become an indispensible part of the tourism industry. Mobile and web-based services offer travelers the chance to access information on current offers, events and geographic facts on their holiday destination via the internet or smartphones. With the digitalization of the entire tourism value chain from bookings to on-site orientation, this industry offers great potential for optimization.
In today’s society, our lives revolve around the concept of mobility. Information systems like electronic guides or web-based route planners facilitate movements in passenger traffic as well as freight traffic, e.g. for pedestrians, vehicle drivers or public transport. Salzburg Research meets the demands of today’s mobile people with software solutions that are implemented together with mobility service providers or logistics companies.
The internet is gradually entering previously closed fields of application like building automation, intelligent traffic optimization or process engineering. The increasing capacity utilization of network infrastructures requires detailed controlling and optimization of data streams. To meet these growing demands, Salzburg Research is working on new, dynamic solutions for a more stable and secure internet.
Today’s economic and social innovations are largely based on the use of information and communication technologies (ICT). However, the success and sustainability of this kind of innovations can only be guaranteed by a sound interplay of people, organizations, contents and technology. With its interdisciplinary knowhow, Salzburg Research guides and supports companies and public institutions with a focus on media, tourism, education and culture.
Organizations spend a large amount of time locating, processing, storing and making accessible internal knowledge like technical details, previous decisions or projects. The same is true for the internet. However, traditional technological solutions in the field of data management (e.g. search engines) are gradually reaching their limits. Therefore, Salzburg Research is working on methods and technologies to facilitate and automate the structuring, locating and accessing of information.
Increased competition, customer demands, and complex logistical challenges require increased flexibility, efficiency, and supporting IT tools in logistics planning. Salzburg Research develops these tools, and offers customized math-based design and optimization methods for various industries. The savings potential in comparison to manual scheduling ranges between 5-15 percent.
