Subtitle: adesso Austria GmbH wins public tender for web portal

Dortmund/Vienna (euro adhoc) - adesso Austria GmbH has been identified as the
successful bidder in the University of Vienna's public tender process for a
project worth millions of euros. adesso Austria will join up with the university
to design, develop and implement a new web portal for students and academic
staff. The project is set for completion in mid-2014 and encompasses consultancy
and software development services worth a total of EUR 2.3 million. 

The new web portal being realised by adesso is set to be an information and
communication platform operational throughout the University of Vienna,
providing both students and academic staff with user-friendly centralised access
to all online services related to academic courses. The solution will replace
the existing IT system which no longer caters for the full range of modern-day
technical possibilities. A survey on the existing system carried out by the
university revealed potential for improvement with regard to user-friendliness
and interaction between students, academic staff and the university's
administrative department.

The portal forms part of the university's target to increase quality in
administrative student services and in the organisation and realisation of
courses and teaching. It will also serve as a basis to simplify system
maintenance, and improve the university's public image. The project participants
are working closely with the university's department for Educational Affairs and
Computer Services, its IT department, as well as representatives of all user
groups. Among the key emphases of this work is the sharing of expertise in
fields such as agile software development, which will empower the university to
operate the software independently and develop it further according to its
needs.

With a student body of approximately 91,000 and around 9,400 employees, 6,700 of
whom are academic staff, the University of Vienna is one of Europe's largest
higher education institutions. The commission of this project will increase
adesso's presence on the Austrian market. Success in the public tender process
is also further proof of adesso Austria GmbH's successful development. The
company expects to make a significant profit in 2012 after a significant
increase in turnover.
