Digital Sovereignty for companies, the education sector and the state is more relevant than ever and was the focus of the Univention Summit 2021.
Therefore projects such as Phoenix - the development of an Open Source web workplace for public administration - and the Sovereign Cloud Stack (SCS) - the open and federated IT infrastructure of Gaia X - were on the agenda.
The participants of the Univention Summit 2021 also learned all about the new features and technical basis of UCS 5 and UCS@school 5. Further users reported on best practices in the use of UCS and UCS@school. And numerous manufacturers and IT service providers presented their IT services in workshops and in the accompanying exhibition.

I’m really looking forward to the next Univention Summit and the many Open Source colleagues who will be there. You always meet new, interesting people. For me, the Summit is the perfect start into the year.

A characteristic feature of the Univention Summit is the open exchange at a high professional level from different perspectives.
In a pleasant atmosphere, participants exchange information about very practical or technical, but also planning topics such as media development planning, IT support structures, requirements specification and evaluation.
This is how digital transformation can succeed in the educational sector.

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

The use of digital offerings in schools becomes increasingly important for us as a provider of educational media. Teachers and students should be able to use them without hurdles and barriers and in infrastructures that are as open as possible. A prerequisite for this is good interaction between all school IT offerings. The Univention Summit is an excellent place for inspiration and exchange on this topic.

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 the next Summit!
