This is Univention
Since 2002, we are offering companies and institutions open-source solutions for managing digital identities and integrating IT applications using UCS and UCS@school. We allow them to keep their data and processes under their control. Therefore, they can determine which solutions they use, optimally adapt their IT to their own needs, and remain independent of specific manufacturers. In this way, we create the basis for digital sovereignty and a self-determined and future-oriented IT.
With our solutions, the digital identities for millions of users worldwide are securely managed and used by thousands of organizations as an open platform for integrating IT applications – from corporations like Orange or Suse, many federal states, schools, and small businesses.

Our Vision: Creating Digital Sovereignty for the World
The demand for Digital Sovereignty is more urgent than ever. We all leave traces and data on the internet – sometimes voluntarily, but very often without being able to influence it ourselves. Large self-contained cloud platforms collect our data in ever more networked digital structures. We do not know what they use it for, as we are not allowed to see the algorithms of these companies. That means we lose control over our digital identity, the possibility for innovation, competition, and self-determination.
Therefore, our goal is to advance Digital Sovereignty worldwide by raising awareness and enabling a more conscious use of IT. With 100% open-source software and the possibility to decide at any time to whom we hand over which data, we guarantee transparency and control over data, processes, and software. Because only those who have freedom of choice can define who they are and what role they want to play in a digital world. In this way, we not only increase security and trust in IT. Furthermore, we also promote innovative strength and economic independence at all levels.
Our Culture: What makes us tick
At Univention, we cultivate a corporate culture that enables every employee to develop their potential, drive projects forward, develop themselves further and take on responsibility. We meet each other at eye level, respect performance and good ideas and not hierarchies. Our five core values form the basis: openness, integrity, respect, responsibility, and development. We have developed these in a mutual exchange, regularly put them to the test of practical cooperation and constantly develop them further.
