Innovation Activities

Our company lays emphasis on innovation acivities as well. Our colleagues developed several innovative solutions with our partners in international and domestic projects. The innovative character of these solutions are underpinned by a number of scientific publications. Our main research areas

Modelling legal source documents

Our company was an active participant of the Estrella (European project for Standardized Transparent Representations in order to Extend Legal Accessibility, IST-2004-027655) R&D project as a subcontractor of Corvinus University. The project lasted from 2007 to 2009. The project aimed to develop and validate an open, standards-based platform allowing public administrations to develop and deploy comprehensive legal knowledge management solutions, without becoming dependent on proprietary products of particular vendors.

The project looked for the possibility of evolving new technologies and standards in two important fields and drew up a recommendation in both fields. The first one, the MetaLex XML interchange format which makes possible uniform storage of legal texts as well as management and searching of metadata, meanwhile has been accepted as an official standard by European Commettee of Standards (CEN) The second solution is the Legal Knowledge Interchange Format Legal Knowledge Interchange Format (LKIF) standard which makes possible information change between knowledge-based systems. The advantage of this format using Semantic Web technologies is that it orders legal concepts in a uniform structure, associates these concepts with meaning usable during automatic processing (LKIF Core), as well as provides methods to describe and compare legal argumentations (Carneades).

One of the basic legal task, the evaluation of legal cases can be solved with the HARNESS pilot application, which was implemented with extension of the LKIF Core ontology using Semantic Web technologies and tools.

During the project we closely cooperated with the Hungarian Tax and for Administration (APEH) when modelling and testing legal pilot applications.

The experiences of the Estrella project were utilised during the development of our Emerald integrated legal modelling framework.

Management of software projects

Project management is the discipline of organising and controlling resources. It aims that - as a result of the work done by resources - the project goals succeed within a given time constraint and budget. Our company has experiences mainly in strategic, tactical and operative planning of software projects that are applied – besides R&D projects – in our own business projects as well. Our experiences vary from traditional project management methods (eg. PRINCE2) to agile software development methods Scrum, FDD, TDD, eXtreme Programming, Agile Manifesto, Software craftsmanship). We have developed methodical and algorithmical support to these methods.
