Order from Dataport for Open Source collaboration platform Phoenix

Dataport has commissioned a consortium of partners, consisting of Univention, Bechtle, Fraunhofer and Capgemini with the creation of a web-based collaboration platform building on Open Source products by Univention. This platform is to enable the gradual shift of the software infrastructure used in public administration and education towards Open Source. The goal is to largely replace proprietary software by 2025 and bolster the digital sovereignty of public-sector organisations. The consortium’s partners will be supported by an extensive network of partners within the Open Source community, as well as the private and public sectors. Other established Open Source solutions will be integrated into the platform over the coming months.
