Welcome to the Chair of Software and Business Engineering (SBE)

Welcome to the Chair of Software and Business Engineering (SBE) at the Faculty IV of TU Berlin.

This chair has been newly established in June 2019, is led by Prof. Dr. Ingo Weber, and is currently in the formation phase. Current job openings can be found under Service & contact > Jobs.




SBE-led team wins BPI Challenge 2020

The winning team of the BPI Challenge 2020 (Business Process Intelligence Challenge) in the Professional Category comes from the Chair of Software & Business Engineering of the TU Berlin. Our report is available on the website of the ICPM 2020 (International Conference for Process Mining). Originally starting as a student project of the course Process Mining, we formed a task force with course members to work on our BPIC report. We are honored to win this award, and thank the organizers of the challenge.

Paper “Incentive Alignment of Business Processes” accepted at BPM 2020

Incentive alignment is a technical term capturing the proverbial win-win situations. The idea is to check if “selfish”, profit-maximizing behavior of the participants of a business process or a supply chain can guarantee success for everyone, because the incentives lead to actors favouring actions that contribute to the overall goal. Our paper is a first step towards efficient methods for checking inter-organizational business process for incentive alignment. The theoretical underpinning are game theory and solution strategies from the area of multi-agent reinforcement learning. Roughly, the paper is spelling out ethereum’s vision of a better world through the alignment of incentives, for the case of business processes.

The paper has been accepted for publica.tion at the prestigious BPM conference, and the PDF (pre-print) can be found here.

Title: Collaborative Business Processes Through Blockchain


Seminar by Len Bass, CMU, on 25 November: "Don’t forget about Deployment and Operations"

Standard definitions of software engineering suggest that the software engineer's job is done when the code is comitted. The definitions assume that deployment and operations are problems that belong to other people. In the modern world, this is no longer true. Software engineers must manage their code through to deployment and, frequently, are the first responders when a problem occurs. Without designing for deployment many different types of errors can occur during deployment. Without designing for first response, error correction can take a long time.

Microservice architecture is a design style that reduces the errors during deployment, speeds up deployment, and supports error detection after code is placed into production. This talk will describe how microservice architectures perform these miracles and at what cost.

  • Location: Lecture theatre H 2013, TU main building
