About CETI

— filed under:

CETI's vision is to enable Enterprise Transformation through Information Technologies. Our mission is to develop and disseminate advanced knowledge for service-intensive processes and innovations.

CETI conducts research in Knowledge-driven Enterprise Architectures and Services: Innovative mobile, location-based, and geo-spatial applications have been developed for our sponsors.  In addition, technologies such as wireless, semantic web, model-driven architectures, and cloud computing are all implemented to provide solutions.  Leveraging our industry projects, we provide early access to thought leadership and curriculum in the following areas.   


Rich educational experiences and future workforce: 

- Knowledge is delivered through mentorship and projects.

- Industry-relevant education and internship experiences equip students with sought-after skills as they enter the future workforce and global economy.

- Over thirty exceptionally trained graduate students (and many undergraduates) are typically affiliated with CETI. 

- Collaborations with over fifty private and public organizations have lead to our Adaptive Complex Enterprise (or ACE) services framework as well as contributions to the field of Service Sciences, Management and Engineering.    

CETI collaborations range from technology startups to private enterprises to government and non-government organizations.  Recent project examples include:

- Mobile family calendaring application for a technology startup in collaboration with TechColumbus.

- Data center power efficiency achieved by models that align and correlate the business value of applications with their resource and energy utilization by the underlying infrastructure, for Nationwide Insurance.

- Energy management in legacy buildings through the use of wireless sensors for OSU Facilities Management.

- Meta-data driven user interface for a public domain enterprise services bus in health care by Strategic Thinking Industries.

- Shared-IT services and process design based on ACE intelligence mining for The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

- My Neighborhoods based on GIS for context-based presentation of information to the citizens for the City of Columbus Department of Technology.

 - Green Revolution GeoGame (see below) for decision making through game playing developed with OSU's Technology Enhanced Learning. 

- Knowledge-based Architecture for Role-based Access Management of experimental data for OSU Medical Center.

- User Services for sharing Super Computer Resources in collaboration with the Ohio Super Computer Center.


Benefits to industry:

- Our inter-disciplinary teams design information applications and infrastructures that leverage a broad range of geospatial, sensing, mobile and enterprise technologies to deliver and user-oriented applications and solutions.   

- Sponsored projects and workshops provide practical approaches to the management of complex environments addressing both technology and organizational challenges.   

- Members can access all CETI knowledge assets - prototypes, reports, patterns, assessments and benchmarks, publications, and reference implementations.

- Our center projects provide a many fold cost advantage.
