Application-oriented research in the field of software

Partner for industry and science

As one of the largest independent research centers in Austria in the field of software, Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH) plays a harbinger role for software-related technological research and development trends.

Software Competence Center Hagenberg was founded by five departments of Johannes Kepler University Linz (Prof. Buchberger (RISC), Prof. Pomberger (Institute for Business Informatics), Prof. Klement (Institute for Knowledge-Based Mathematical Systems; Fuzzy Logic Laboratory Linz-Hagenberg), Prof. Wagner (FAW Institute for Application-Oriented Knowledge Processing) and Prof. Engl (Institute for Industrial Mathematics)) in July 1999 in the realm of the K plus competence program

A Graphical User Interface For A Cosy Home

Successful Cooperation with Windhager Zentralheizung

Together with central heating manufacturer Windhager from Seekirchen near Salzburg, a SAE team led by Mario Winterer implemented the graphical user interface for Windhager's new generation of solid fuel heating systems. This application allows both residents and service technicians comfortable access to heating and hot water functions.

The GUI framework Qt, where the SAE team has extensive professional expertise,  has been chosen as base technology for the application.

After months of intense development work, the team was able to release the first modules into an intensive field testing phase.

Round Table: Information Efficiency

BI in the Area of Conflict between Data Technology and Business

1st Roundtable in Linz on 12 October 2015. The TDWI Roundtable offers interested parties a neutral, manufacturer-independent and advertising-free platform in which thoughts and ideas in the data warehouse and BI environment are presented and discussed and in which professionals can get to know each other.

No nanoparticle shall evade us!

New process developed for measuring nanoparticles

In the realm of the project “Nanoparticle Tracking”, funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency, researchers at Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH) have succeeded in significantly improving the analysis of nanoparticle samples.

Tackling the Software Crisis

Research Success in Advanced Computing

Following on from the highly successful EU ParaPhrase project, the University of St Andrews has obtained substantial further funding from the Europeon Union under the Horizon 2020 programme to study advanced computing. The 3.5M Euro RePhrase project is coordinated by Professor Kevin Hammond of the University of St Andrews, and brings together 8 leading academic and industry partners from the UK, Austria, Italy, Spain, Hungary and Israel.  It aims to tackle one of the most pressing problems in computer science: how to produce effective software for emerging "parallel" computer platforms, that promise significantly increased performance at significantly reduced cost and energy usage. 

SCCH presents INDYCO

At the Innovation day in Berlin

At the 22nd Innovation Day of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy in Berlin-Pankow on 11 June, more than 300 companies and research institutions from all over Germany presented a selection of new products, processes and services. The development  was mainly supported by subsidies from the Central Innovation Programme Mittelstand (ZIM) or which were developed using research results of the industrial joint research projects and non-profit industry research institutions in East Germany, which are also supported by the BMWI.

SMEs and Big Data

Within the framework of Bits of Tomorrow

For small and medium enterprises, the question arises, how much effort they can drive sensibly to systematically develop their data. To evaluate them  and to make them productive in the sense of the company. The questions are many and varied: What is Big Data for small and medium-sized businesses? Which areas of application have already proved, that could be developed? Where are the problems and where are the solutions?

New project: RePhrase

Refactoring Parallel Heterogeneous Applications

The RePhrase project aims to produce new software engineering tools, techniques and methodologies for developing data-intensive applications in C++, targeting heterogeneous multicore/manycore systems that combine CPUs and GPUs into a coherent parallel platform.
