Digitalization as an Opportunity

Digitalization has permeated all areas of life, from private communication to the organization of states and institutions. IT has become an integral part of our everyday lives.

This development must not be dominated by a few large corporations. Because such a monopoly position harbors risks: Data and processes are barely comprehensible to third parties, which limits the ability to control and shape them.

IT future – self-determined

We stand for IT that is shaped by the users. An IT landscape that enables people and organizations to control and design their processes and data flows independently – that is our goal.

Our Mission: An open, federable, scalable IT platform

Our platforms meet the demand for digital sovereignty and put control back into the hands of the users. Openness is a key aspect of this: the source code is accessible to everyone and can be adapted. Thanks to open standards, a wide variety of applications can be integrated and used. In addition, our platform is data-secure and federable, which enables flexible use in your own data centers or in the cloud.

Our Goal: IT that enables control and real innovation

Our goal is IT that enables control and promotes real innovation. We offer an alternative to the dominant offerings of hyperscalers and create IT that puts the user at the center. Because we are convinced that this is the only way to create real freedom of choice and enable innovations that move the world forward.
