In this project, uma and IBM's information technologies and software modules were employed, enabling individually scalable Web 2.0 solutions.


The numerous interactions on this platform account for a sophisticated knowledge management system and a robust technical platform, both provided by the uma and IBM partnership.


IBM provided the IT infrastructure, including hardware, system software, websphere middleware as well as the network infrastructure. The combination of Open Source elements such as Java-based Jroller blog modules, and the e-business platform WebSphere, Websphere Portal and DB2 (IBM), is unique.


uma's deployed knowledge management systems ensure order within the information. The service platform Melvil® makes it possible to translate and structure the entire knowledge base, and to impressively visualise it with the semantic explorer.
