We are indebted to the sponsors of VaMoS 2012. Learn more about their motives for supporting VaMoS 2012.
Developing and providing products and solutions for enterprise content management including contract and data privacy management based on the JANUS software generator, the otris software AG has evolved in Germany to one of the leading companies in these fields. Products and solutions by the otris software AG are used by many customers—customers of different size as well as from different branches of industry. As our customers vary in sizes and branches, the ability of our products and solutions to adapt them easily to specific needs and business processes of our customers, is a key success factor, which—from our point of view—makes the management and modelling of variability in our products and solutions to a key success factor too. But to bring the needed variability into our products and solutions appropriate methods and tools for analysing, modelling, implementing and testing the variability of software systems are needed. And as all these issues are discussed within the workshop series on Variability Modelling of Software-intensive Systems (VaMoS) by scientists as well as practitioners, we willingly support the VaMoS 2012. We wish the organizers as well as the—hopefully—many participants interesting contributions, presentations and fruitful discussions.

Developing customized applications is part of our daily business: Web applications need to match the customers` design guidelines, respect internal process flows and come with custom modules focused on the particular needs of our customers. To be able to maintain all different configuration sets we rely on software tools that help us to manage the variability efficiently.
By using techniques to manage the variability of our software applications it is possible to almost automatically generate an application which is optimized for the customers needs. Since bitExpert develops application by using a scripting language (PHP) we are in need for such an solution to deliver performance optimized applications to our customers.

As software modernisation has become one of Deltas main business areas automatic recognition and management of variability (i.e. variability mining and reengineering) gets more and more important.
Successful collaborations with different research institutions over the last years motivated Delta to sponsor the workshop VaMoS and thereby to support the research on variability modelling and mining, give and get new impulses and to keep in touch with the state of the art of the variability research.
Delta wishes the organizers good luck and the participants a pleasant stay and interesting presentations as well as constructive discussions.
