The White House Shows How Open Source Works

Open Source Initiative LogoChoosing Open Source gets you more – a whole lot more. That is especially true for the state, which gains flexibility, independence, added security, and, above all, better synergies within and between different state organizations by actively giving preference to and promoting the use of Open Source software.

What Does it Imply for Support if a Vendor Moves from On-premise to Cloud-based Products?

As many software companies move their products to cloud-based offerings, the question comes up: where is the difference between supporting cloud-based products and supporting on-premise products?

App Rating in the Univention App Center

Example App Rating in App Center
Everybody who surfs through the internet knows some sort of rating for products, software, photos, postings, etc. Ratings are present at your favorite online book store, your movie or music streaming provider and on the two biggest and well-known marketplaces for mobile devices. All those rating systems have in common that users can leave comments and give a rating between zero to five. Most people, including me, are influenced by ratings and use them in their buying decision process, sometimes even unconsciously. Now, we have also implemented a rating system in our App Center.
