INVENT: Infrastructure for Virtual Enterprises

This Project is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) within the main emphasis program SPP I&K. INVENT is a continuation of the recently concluded project WISE also funded by the SNF.

The goal of the INVENT project is to develop a coherent Electronic Commerce software platform for enterprise networks that can be easily and seamlessly exploited in small and medium enterprises.

A key aspect is the application of publish/subscribe techniques to implement a distributed process support system that accounts for the flexibility and, at the same time, for the execution guarantees required by processes in Electronic Commerce.
