German software companies have a leading role in the world market for business software. In order to maintain and further expand this position in the future, the Software-Cluster in southwestern Germany has started with the ambition of laying the foundation for the next generation of business software. Business and academia work together in close cooperation within the cluster to achieve this aim.
