WebGenesis® - Generation support for Web-based Information Systems

The wide acceptance of the World Wide Web shows a growing tendency of using Internet technologies also for the development of "private" information systems (intranet, extranet) as well as dedicated technical applications. One can notice the tendency that specific user groups want to insert and design as well as describe and manage their own information. This is reflected in a number of terms and concepts: 

  • Content- and Document Management
  • Community Management
  • Knowledge Management
  • Thematic Networks

For this purpose, IOSB has developed in a series of projects, concepts, methods and tools. These were tested in the following innovative fields of applications:

  • for the coordination of environmental research
  • in public administration departments, such as state ministries
  • in general: information provision and cooperation across companies and institutions.
The result of these developments is the system WebGenesis ® - Framework for generation of and support for Web -based Information systems.
It serves as a basis for further product developments from our company, such as Crayons Autoren- und Lernumgebung in einem, and from our customers and partners.
