asknet Academics at the ZKI Spring Conference 2016
A few days ago, asknet's Academics Business Unit was present at the ZKI Spring Conference. This year’s slogan of the ZKI (Centers for Communication and Information Processing) meeting was Safety in the Higher Education-IT. The Meeting was hosted by the Europa University Viadrina and took place from March 7th to 9th in Frankfurt (Oder).
By working closely with universities throughout Germany, asknet AG has been a regular guest on the ZKI meetings for many years. This year’s event was very successful and included many interesting topics and discussions.
With a presentation about IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) in the software licenses workgroup, asknet's Academics Business Unit presented one of the focus businesses in 2016. In a live demo, asknet presented virtual machines which are simple to order and well suited to the ordering process of universities. The many positive talks after the live demo underpinned the strategy of asknet's Academics Business Unit.
To say “thank you” for the last, successful years, we invited participants and customers to the “20 years of asknet” event at which contacts could be established and maintained in a relaxed atmosphere. We are very pleased that so many familiar and new faces have followed our invitation this evening to make this event such a success.
In Frankfurt (Oder), asknet was accompanied by its business partner for the 3D printer segment, MakerBot. We are already looking forward to the next ZKI conference on September 12 – 14, 2016, Ulm. With the live demonstration of the 3D printers we managed to gain a lot of attention and thus a successful exhibition appearance.
