In 1995 BOC was created as a spin-off from the University of Vienna developing the Business Process Management System (BPMS) – paradigm together with the BPMS group of the University of Vienna. Since then BOC has a tight cooperation with the University of Vienna mainly in the field of business process engineering and knowledge engineering covering aspects such as modelling, meta modelling, semantics, agents and knowledge management.
The core competence beside the consultant services is the development of meta modelling tools. As the toolkit ADONIS® was one of the first commercial meta modelling toolkits, BOC gained technological leadership in this market. Currently BOC implements a new set of meta modelling tools with a strategic goal to make modelling tools available on the Web.
