Today BOC offers commercial modelling tools for strategy management (ADOscore®), business process management (ADONIS®), logistics (ADOlog®) and IT-infrastructure and IT-architecture management (ADOit®).
The BOC network consists of nine units; operational units are located in Vienna, Berlin, Madrid, Athens, Dublin, Warsaw and Winterthur, whereas the headquarters, software and research units are located in Vienna. Overall there are 160 employees that mainly act European wide. Individual customer support has been established on a world-wide basis. In 1995 BOC was created as a spin-off from the University of Vienna developing the Business Process Management System (BPMS) – paradigm together with the BPMS group of the University of Vienna. Since then BOC has a tight cooperation with the University of Vienna mainly in the field of business process engineering and knowledge engineering covering aspects such as modelling, meta-modelling, semantics, agents and knowledge management.
The core competence beside the consultant services is the development/implementation of modelling tools based upon BOC’s ADOxx Meta-Modelling platform (accessible online at http://www.adoxx.org). As the business process management toolkit ADONIS® was one of the first commercial toolkits built using meta-modelling concepts and technologies, BOC gained technological leadership in this market and recently published the open use platform ADOxx.org. Currently BOC considers a new approach on developing modelling tools by offering the ADOxx platform to the research community in the field on a free to use basis and building/supporting the community around the idea of meta-modelling concepts/technologies.
The goal of BOC is to transfer the expert know how achieved in the business process management in the service domain into the production and logistic domain with the product ADOlog®.
BOC has a highly competitive innovation group, which continuously supports the BOC internal software development and operative business units with innovative solutions. Innovation 2.0 – hence the innovation within a world-wide community – is established with the ADOxx.org platform, enlarging the 11 people innovation team with 400 developers and 1500 interested stakeholders of the community. This principle is used to support the quicker development of innovative functionality of the model-based management suite. As BOC has strong experience in the bank and financial industry, it uses aforementioned innovation approach to push their products also towards the manufactory market with the clear goal to support the market entrance of BOC with smart Industry 4.0 solutions.
