For Public Administration and Educational Institutions

UCS@school was developed in close cooperation with the school authority of the state of Bremen to meet the special requirements of the education sector. It is used by numerous school authorities and state authorities. UCS@school enables you to centralize and standardize your school IT by centrally maintaining and administrating the identities and access rights of the users at the school authority and providing access to services from anywhere through an internet school portal. Via the interface or the integrated App Center, you can integrate additional services with connectors and manage them centrally. With UCS@school, federal states can set up a nationwide directory service, connect services such as for e-mails, and enable access to educational clouds.

Central Concept – IT at the School Authority Relieves the Burden on Schools

The central provision of important IT services by the school authorities relieves schools from the burden of IT administration. Depending on the expansion of the Internet connection, only the necessary services remain in the school. All other services are managed centrally by the school authorities and made available via a school portal.

Statewide Directory Services, Data Imports and School Clouds

UCS@school is ideal for building nationwide directory services thanks to its scalability to hundreds of thousands of users. Via standardized interfaces, an automated connection for the user data can be implemented between the state directory service and the individual school authorities. Via the connection of services such as for mails, you can implement statewide services, for example, mail services for teachers or a state education cloud.

Professional Project Support

The implementation of large digitization projects in often extremely heterogeneous and historically grown school IT environments requires a high degree of project management competence and human resources. Both cannot or should not always be done completely alone by the school authority. Here our Professional Services Team offers support. In dozens of projects, our colleagues have met the most diverse requirements. They have acquired the necessary practical experience with regard to conditions for success, project planning, and IT architecture and infrastructure. They can thus effectively support those responsible on site.
