The project B-HiP investigates the applicability of high-performance computing infrastructure to support the execution of business transactions. In two major research lines organizational business processes and individual work processes are investigated and mechanisms for real-time support for such scenarios has been developed. The work in the reporting period mainly focused on creating the foundational model layer and to implement prototypes demonstrating the performance of such analysis mechanisms. Within the Future SOC Lab infrastructure, performance tests have been executed and proved a considerable performance increase. In future developments also complete business scenarios should be evaluated, in order to answer the question, whether a HPC infrastructure together with the B-HiP functionalities can provide relevant real-time support for business processes.
