Orange Migration UCS
When we at Orange decided to renew our e-mail platform, we could not yet know that we would celebrate the successful end of migration on the 5th of July 2022 in our headquarters in Paris with more than 200 guests. We initiated the project back in 2014 and are now able to look back on eight years of successful cooperation with Univention that led to our new e-mail platform. Its main components are the e-mail back-end solution Dovecot, the groupware Open-Xchange as webmail and PIM solution, and the identity management Univention Corporate Server (UCS), which today manages the user identities of about 13 million active mailboxes.

Many UCS@school users rely on the well-known Open Source solution Moodle, which can be adapted to individual needs in terms of content and presentation. By integrating Moodle into UCS@school, which we offer as so-called “cool solutions“, teachers and students can easily log in to their courses and classes with their familiar user data.

How the City of Schwäbisch-Hall Ensures a Sustainable Open Source IT Infrastructure with the Introduction of UCS

When people think of Schwäbisch-Hall, they most likely think of the building society of the same name or a picturesque old town (which is well worth a visit, by the way). Maintaining the latter is just one of the many tasks of the city administration. And the days of pencils and paper files are slowly coming to an end here, too. Modern IT ensures that the more than 900 employees can access their mails, appointments, contacts and files at any time and from any place.
