ATLANTIS Group, a brand of interdisciplinary research activity, develops "problem-solving activity" under a "process-centric" view, in problems that operates at the intersection of service systems engineering, economics of technical change and public policies. In the design and development of any IT application for managing a process system, the notion of process model is essential.
A process model aims to capture the exact way, and the various alternative paths as defined by instant rules or human decisions, a process can be handled. ATLANTIS Group manages, improves and extends, through research and development, a portfolio of process models that embodies accumulated knowledge and shows evidence of effectively collaborating with government agencies and private sector organizations.
Research to improve ATLANTIS Group's portfolio of process model
Examples of the work we are currently designing, include:
- Design and develop Access & Authorization Control Systems (Next Generation) -- based on self-adaptive (versus pre-planned) authorization policies via distributed (versus centralized) access control, with emerging process co-ordination (through flexibility of tradeoffs at the component level, so to provide robustness at the system level)
- Design and develop cross-organizational e-government services based on adaptive BPMS and personalization
- Understanding and modelling the interaction between business process applications and their users, i.e. knowledge workers (through cognitive modelling and Cognitive Task Analysis)
