The Harrisburg University Next Generation Enterprise Center employs innovative business models (e.g., increased partnerships and outsourcing) and relies on the emerging “next generation” of digital technologies” (e.g., Next Generation Networks, Next Generation Web, Next Generation Databases, Next Generation Software Infrastructure, etc.). Examples of NGEs include Digital Health, Digital Agriculture, Smart Cities, Smart Enterprises, Smart Supply Chains, Industry4.0, and many other emerging enterprise models that fully exploit digital innovations.

The NGE Center at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology (HU), was created by the faculty of the ISEM (Information Systems Engineering and Management) Program. The center was created to invite  students, faculty, staff, and external stakeholders to participate in the research, education, training, publications, and computer-aided consulting activities centered around the next generation of digital enterprises (please see the graphic). Here is a short list of our current areas of work:

  • Workflow and Business Process Management
  • Business Modeling and Simulation
  • Smart Enterprises, Smart Cities, Smart Towns, Smart Communities and Smart Islands
  • Healthcare Informatics and Digital Health Services
  • Education, Training and Computer Aided Advisory Services for the Underserved Populations
