Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V.
German Informatics Society (Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI)) is a non-profit organization with about 20,000 members living across the world.
Most of them develop the discipline of informatics by teaching, researching or working in the field of informatics, while others are involved in related business and political areas. The main purposes of this network of professionals are motivate for informatics, develop the scientific discipline and promote the impact informatics has economy, business and society.
And to offer career support by the means of networking.
Members of GI are either individuals, companies or non-governmental organizations. We are proud to be able to claim that our members’ knowledge covers almost everything anyone could wish to know about informatics. Our challenge is to make the best of this broad knowledge base for GI, its members and society as a whole. In times of ever-growing importance and influence of an integrated Europe, GI is increasingly involved in European projects and organizations.
Education and Training
Starting about 40 years ago – at the time when the first informatics departments were being set up in Germany – our first aim was to build up, implement, grow and strengthen the academic discipline.
Times have changed, but our portfolio is still based on this main point. For instance, GI has contributed to the curricula for new bachelor and masters degrees in Germany, as to the official recognition of new courses.
Other important GI activities include raising public awareness of informatics including its benefits and risks.
In addition, our portfolio includes programmes to create early motivation and interest for informatics. Supported by products to develop skills and aided by initiatives for training frameworks. Beside other project-related activities, we do this e.g. by supporting Germany’s informatics competition BWINF, the European Computer Driving Licence ECDL and the Advanced IT Training System AITTS.
GI supports networking between researchers in industry, research institutes and universities by providing more than 100 special interest groups and about 40 regional branches. They can all rely on the same network of knowledge, best practices, skills and experience. Scientific and technical staffs from all types of colleges and research institutions play an active role in GI. All of them are represented in the management committee and the advisory councils.
About 10 % of GI’s members are students. For them, GI offers a network of contacts, information and coaching across many universities. There is an official advisory council looking after their interests.
Our close collaboration is assisted by services. For example, members are consistently well informed by our periodical Informatik Spektrum or by other print and online publications, edited by our interest groups.
Our own publication series LNI (Lecture Notes in Informatics) and access to Digital Libraries like those of the IEEE Computer Society or the new German io-port.net are other parts of our portfolio.
The number of freelance and self-employed IT experts in Germany is growing. Within GI those run an own special interest group. They are represented in the management committee through their own advisory council.
Our cooperation with the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry reaches from blue chip companies developing new architectures and solutions to a broad range of small and medium-sized companies who are adding value to their products by producing or using advanced IT solutions.
Gesellschaft für Systems Engineering e.V.
Die gemeinnützige Gesellschaft für Systems Engineering e.V. (GfSE) wurde 1997 mit dem Ziel gegründet, das Systems Engineering Gedankengut im deutschsprachigen Raum zu fördern und weiterzuentwickeln. Im Rahmen von Seminaren, Tagungen und anderen Angeboten stellt sie ein Forum für den Wissens- und Erfahrungsaustausch zwischen Industrie, Forschung und Lehre dar.
The International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB) has joined forces with the vision to create an international and professional basis for RE, in order to give this discipline the importance and the orientation that corresponds to its added value for the industry.
IREB is the developer and the holder of the CPRE (Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering) certification scheme. The board was created in 2006 by leading RE representatives, from science, research, industry and consulting, and today it is a worldwide renowned body of experts for the individual certification of professionals in requirements engineering. Though the CPRE certification scheme originated in Europe, it is also supported by committed members in many countries ranging from North and South America to Europe and Asia.
In their effort to establish the CPRE certification scheme internationally, IREB is highly successful. Today, more than 29,000 professionals have obtained the CPRE Foundation Level certificate in 68 countries.
For more information about IREB, their activities and the certification model, see www.ireb.org.
The success of IT projects is decisive for many firms. That’s why microTOOL develops tools and offers services. Tool for application lifecycle management, project management and requirements engineering. And services like consultation, training and support for users at their locations.
With objectiF RPM, objectiF RM and in-STEP BLUE, microTOOL develops three very current tools. objectiF RPM supports application lifecycle management including project planning with requirements and useful graphic presentation. objectiF RM helps requirements engineers and business analysts with an environment to collect and arrange requirements with modern diagrams, for example for system contexts, system architecture, stakeholders, goals, requirements and tests. And in-STEP BLUE offers organizations and projects support for processes and fulfilling compliance requirements. This solution is still unique today, with its integration of management of projects, multi-projects, requirements, changes, quality, tests, risks and documents.
