Can new modelling methods be developed?2018-09-18T11:46:23+02:00

Yes! For the standard classes we recommend using notations that are international standards (e.g. BPMN 2.0 in ADONIS). But if you are interested in developing your own modelling method in research projects or as part of a master thesis, you have the three platforms available for Academic Research: Open Models Initiative, the ADOxx Metamodelling Platform and the OMiLAB.

What is on offer in terms of research and research projects?2018-09-18T11:46:04+02:00

BOC Group is heavily involved in national and international research projects. A brief overview of projects and contact details can be found here. In addition, we operate and manage three platforms for Academic Research: Open Models Initiative, the ADOxx Metamodelling Platform and the OMiLAB.

What are the topics for guest lectures?2019-12-19T17:45:37+01:00

With more than 20 years of experience in process and IT management the diversity of topics has become incredibly broad. If you are interested in a guest lecture from BOC as part of your course, just let us know and we will be more than happy to support you.

Can you explain the “Guest lectures and / or practical examples”?2019-12-19T17:47:17+01:00

The guest lecture is an opportunity to enrich the classroom lectures with sessions focusing on a specific topic. It can either be specialized know-how on the software (e.g. analyses, optimizations, etc.) or a specialist focus in terms of professional practical experience. If you are interested in organizing a guest lecture, please get in touch with your account manager or contact us via the web form.

Is it possible to run ADONIS and / or ADOIT in the infrastructure of our academic institution and / or to integrate with existing other systems?2019-12-19T17:39:35+01:00

Yes, both of this is possible! Simply contact us with your request using the keyword “Academic Professional” or “Academic Individual”.

Can I sign up additional students for a course?2018-08-20T16:28:07+02:00

Yes of course. Please send your request including your Academic Cloud ID to support(at)boc-cloud.com and let us know how many new student users you do require.

Can I test-drive the Academic Cloud before I sign up?2019-12-19T17:41:38+01:00

Yes, of course. The Academic Cloud offerings for ADONIS (BPM) or ADOIT (EA) are identical in its functional scope to the ADONIS NP 30-Day Free Trial or the ADOIT 30-Day Free Trial.

How is the Academy content repository structured?2019-12-16T11:58:04+01:00

Both the lecturers and all students have access to the same database. The structure of the database is organized in the following manner:

Lecturers have access to two separate areas or folder groups, one private and one public. The private area is limited in terms of access and cannot be seen by the other participants, whereas the public area is more flexible and can be used for sharing content between the professor and the students (e.g. useful for examples, assignments, etc.).

Students on the other hand, only have one area – consisting of their own separate folders, for each student individually, which cannot be seen by the other participants (e.g. useful for taking exams etc.).

In addition to areas mentioned above, a collaboration area is also available, in which all students and professors can work together. In this area, the participants can also freely define subfolder structures.

What exactly is included in a lecturers account under the Academy programme?2018-08-10T15:57:56+02:00

The account provides free access to ADONIS or ADOIT for the duration of a course including preparation and review time (max. 8 months) for the lecturer and for all students. Access is a SaaS based, i.e no on-site installation is required. All access is via a standard web browser.

What are the terms and conditions (GTC) of BOC Group and where can I find them?2018-09-18T11:42:38+02:00

You can find all our Terms and Conditions here.

Is it possible to tailor the Academy Programme of BOC Group individually for our educational institution?2019-12-19T17:34:02+01:00

Yes, it certainly is! Upon request, BOC Group offers tailored variants of the Academy Programme to cater for additional use cases and a mutually beneficial collaboration model. In case you are interested, simply contact us using the keywords “Academic Professional” or “Academic Individual”.

What is the difference between the lecturers and the students account?2018-08-20T15:45:21+02:00

Lecturer accounts can only be solicited by professors or lecturers at an academic institution and include an environment (digital classroom) for an entire course as well as access for the lecturer(s) and all students of this course.

Students on the other hand can apply for a student account as part of their scientific work (final thesis, such as bachelor’s or master’s thesis or PhD thesis) and will receive a single-user access to our BPM or EA suite.

Are there any costs involved, one-time or recurring?2018-08-20T15:46:40+02:00

No, the BOC Academy Programme does not incur any costs.

Why is BOC Group offering an Academy programme?2018-08-21T10:42:35+02:00

BOC Group was founded more than 20 years ago as a spin-off of the University of Vienna. Since then, we have been deeply involved with research and spreading knowledge alongside our commercial offerings. Many of our employees are presently active as lecturers or guest lecturers. The constant information exchange with national and international educational institutions as well as our vast experience in research projects is a valuable asset for all. We are pleased to be able to give something back and to have this opportunity to provide students, lecturers and researchers with free platforms and content in IT-based management through the BOC Academy programmes.
