Changing Concepts in Human-Computer-Interaction in Real-time Enterprise Systems - Introducing a Concept for Intuitive Decision Support in SCM Scenarios

Abstract

In current research, Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) are increasingly based on In-Memory-Technologies, resulting in extremely fast response times for a multitude of typical system requests. In addition, up-to-date hardware configurations apply multi-core processing units, which lead to an availability of immense computing power. Instead of a single result value, a whole result set is calculated within the same period of time. Because of these dramatic changes in technology, many business processes, currently still characterized by mask and dialog oriented user interfaces, will change to interactive and simulation based approaches. This allows for the introduction of innovative, interactive and simulation based business processes instead of conventional batch oriented ones. In the combination of the described interaction concept in this contribution and the handing of result sets as described above, the authors expect a fusion of operational (e.g. supply chain management) and analytical (e.g. business intelligence) application systems. To achieve this goal, the usage of assessment functions for weighting results, multi-dimensional result space folding based on similarity measures and visualizations using 3D-landscapes based on radial basis functions is suggested.
