What the summit participants say

  • Open Source enthusiasts meet Open Source enthusiasts. We have participated for many years out of conviction. We always meet our customers, interested parties and great partner companies who follow the same idea as we do. For us, the Univention Summit is like a family reunion and a fixed date at the beginning of the year.

    Oliver Schulze – agorum Software GmbH

  • The Univention Summit is where we meet a wide range of open source vendors and users in a great venue. Our team values the chance to expand on existing or create new relations with partners and customers in a relaxed atmosphere.

    Frank Karlitschek – Nextcloud

  • 100% Open. An open and honest exchange between manufacturers and IT service providers from which both sides benefit.

    Andre Müller – Bechtle GmbH

  • It was a great pleasure to discuss again the possibilities of file exchange, integration into existing file storages via SAMBA and collaborative editing with medium-sized users and educational institutions. We took home valuable suggestions. As the most frequently installed 3rd party app from the App Center we are also looking forward to 2019!

    Holger Dyroff, Chief Product Officer, ownCloud

  • Univention is an important platform for customers and partners to configure Kopano easily and get it started ,quickly. Many suggestions on this and further ideas actually have been generated in conversations during the last Summit.

    Andreas Rösler – Kopano

  • The Univention Summit in wintry Bremen is a fixed part of the annual event calendar of the Thomas-Krenn AG. It is where technical expertise meets the excellent network of Univention partners and customers: A valuable opportunity for us to deepen existing contacts and establish new ones.

    Dr. David Hoeflmayr – CEO Thomas-Krenn.AG

  • Every year, the Univention Summit is a highlight where partner and vendors meet to share new information they can get here. Always a beautiful location with outstanding food. You are just looking forward to it.
