Independent from specific application domains, similar requirements can be identified regarding information needs during daily work. For coping with generality on the one hand and domain specificity on the other hand the Collaborative Agent-based Knowledge Engine CAKE is currently developed that combines agent and workflow technology in an innovative way. Agent technology is used for integrating various services, whereas workflow technology is used for coordinating collaboration among agents.
