Hidden Champion honored with the German Business Award

Ettlingen, 12/04/2024 – Since 2017, the Innovator of the Year has been elected by Europe’s largest business jury and has now become the largest public award in the German-speaking business community. The vote is for exemplary innovation across all sectors, company sizes and forms of innovation – an award for which the business community itself has the say: Tens of thousands of decision-makers from SMEs, industry and business enthusiasts judge pioneering products, technologies and concepts. Horus – the innovative software company at the heart of the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion – is a leading provider of a professional collaborative business process management solution (Social BPM) and has been developing software and knowledge products for model-based BPM as the basis for successful corporate development since 2009. With the modeling tool “Horus Business Modeler”, the software manufacturer is one of the 20 Innovators of the Year 2024.

Every year, the largest public award in the German economy recognizes companies that are pioneers in their field of activity. What makes this award so special is the mix of companies of all sizes – from global corporations to start-ups. Regardless of the industry and type of innovation, products, technologies, or processes as well as employer concepts, corporate cultures or consulting solutions are honored. The nomination committee examines the applications submitted, proposes possible participants itself and determines the annual honorary award winner. Renowned experts from business, science and the media use their expertise to review and evaluate the various categories. Against this backdrop, the largest audience award in the German economy stands for the most innovative digital solutions and focuses on the importance of pioneering methods and tools.

The Horus Business Modeler provides the basis for modern collaborative business process management for the implementation of business transformations in companies through the concept of the digital twin of an organization (DTO). Both the use of a DTO and collaborative business process management are hot topics in science and practice. Horus Business Modeler combines both and provides social BPM on the basis of a DTO so that changes can be implemented transparently and efficiently as part of fundamental redesigns in companies. Based on the latest database and web technology, Horus Business Modeler is a modern cloud solution and – as its latest innovative enhancement – also offers AI support for model creation.

The Horus Business Modeler has been continuously developed for 15 years now and quickly achieves competitive advantages by its embedding in the internal and external procedures of companies, especially in medium-sized businesses, most of which operate internationally. In addition, Horus’ close cooperation with the KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) and other German universities ensures a permanent input of innovative concepts and current technologies, which play a decisive role in the further development of Horus – the hidden champion of its niche.
