Responsibility and flexibility: Univention software maintenance

Software maintenance means the continuous maintenance, further development and quality assurance of our products. This includes the following services among others:

  • Scheduled integration of new versions of the Open Source software used in the Univention products within the scope of fixed release cycles

  • Further development of the software components developed by Univention

  • Delivery of new product versions

Maintenance is thus the basic requirement for the secure, schedulable and economical operation of IT infrastructures which constantly need to adapt to new developments and requirements.

This is why Univention software licences include maintenance. In addition to the temporally unlimited user rights to the purchased software, users thus also receive continuous software maintenance including the right to procure updates and patches. At the same time, it is also possible to update to any newer version during the maintenance term.
