Univention Summit 2014: Paradigm shift and perspectives for the open cloud
Bremen, 16th January 2014 +++ More than 200 partners and customers seized the opportunity to find out more about and discuss innovations, trends and sales opportunities at this year’s Univention Summit in Bremen. Topics such as clouds, migration and technologies such as SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) were the focus of many of the presentations. For example, former IBM CTO Günther Dueck appeared as a guest speaker with a presentation entitled “Beyond Cloud” explaining cloud computing as a principle which extends far beyond IT and outlining the disruptive changes which can result from it. Keynote speaker Arno Lehmann from Bacula Systems also gave a speech on the topic “Manchmal ist die Cloud keine Option”
(Sometimes a cloud is not an option). In addition, Univention partners reported on how they market UCS successfully and deploy it in actual projects. To round everything off, Univention (www.univention.de) then presented the 2014 roadmap, introducing the further development of the Business Server and the App Center, which will be expanded into a marketplace in the future. Univention Corporate Server (UCS) users will then be able to locate corporate applications there conveniently as well as buy them directly.
