Max Pucher
(Papyrus)
Adaptive Case Management with Converse
Max. J. Pucher is the Founder and Chief Technology Officer of ISIS Papyrus Software. He started his career with IBM where he worked internationally – including 3 years in Saudi Arabia – in hardware engineering, consulting and finally sales. In 1988 he founded what is today the ISIS Papyrus Group. Today it is a medium size, but global software business with Fortune 1000 clients. His concept is to grow with the market and not outgrow the own ability to deliver quality, have employees who enjoy working for ISIS, and last but not least make a good profit. This magic triangle keeps his business from faltering in turbulent times.
In terms of software solutions for businesses he believes that business data and content need to be accessed in context by the business user and not just encoded into programs or processes. Old-Style BPM is a straightjacket for any business. He promotes what he recently named Adaptive Process or ACM, meaning technology that exposes structured (business data) and unstructured (content) information to the members of structured (business) and unstructured (social) organizations to securely execute – with knowledge interactively gathered previously – structured (process) and unstructured (case) work in a transparent and auditable manner.
Stefan Schulte
(TU Wien)
Process Verification based on the Bitcoin Blockchain
Stefan Schulte is Associate Professor at TU Wien. Findings from his research have been published in more than 90 refereed scholarly publications, including publications in high-tier journals like Information Systems, IEEE Transactions on Services Computing, and Future Generation Computer Systems. From 2012 to 2015, Stefan was the project coordinator of the EU FP7 STREP “SIMPLI-CITY – The Road User Information System of the Future”, and from 2015 to 2017, he was the Scientific Leader of the EU Factories of the Future Research and Innovation Action “Cloud-based Rapid Elastic Manufacturing (CREMA)”. Stefan’s research strives to provide the means to process (big) data from, within, and beyond the Internet of Things (IoT). In the field of blockchain technologies, he is interested in the application of blockchains in novel areas as well as in the advancement of current technologies. He has made some contributions to the fields of blockchain-based data provenance and runtime process verification, as well as to the area of cross-blockchain asset transfers. The latter research is conducted as part of Pantos https://pantos.io/.
