Logo: Software Cluster            

The software companies within the cluster region have unique competitive and innovative capabilities in relation to corporate software, which are truly unique the world over. Maintaining and extending this key position is one of the objectives of the project "SWINNG – process innovations in the software industry". In order to achieve this objective, the following aspects are developed and tested: new methods for managing innovation processes during software development, innovative business models for the commercial exploitation of software,  modern practices for aligning software investments with corporate strategies, and concepts for improving structural frameworks in relation to innovative performance. The result will be the availability of modern management methods, which will be able to support both current and future developments within companies and corporate networks. This, in turn, is something the entire German software sector will benefit from.
