The objective of the Cluster is to develop unique, up-to-date and marketable products within the scope of the info-communications industry. Previously software products were mainly sold independently and were implemented to make the processes of various industrial sectors more effective. By contrast, the intention of the Cluster is to put the ICT achievements to work for the development of professional processes of different sectors, as well as creating and fulfilling new user demands. In this way, new systems will emerge with new functions. The penetration of advanced technology and methods into traditional industries is incessant all over the world and market success may only be achieved with this same approach. New emphases, as well as previously unknown services and product groups, are thus created; e.g. in the field of environmental protection, health care or diagnostics. In these sectors, ICT techniques have been present from the beginning and constitute the driving force of development.
