The Information and Media Technologies Centre (IMT) provides central software offerings for Paderborn University. This page gives an overview of the products offered. If products are not listed, please ask (e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org). The IMT can obtain many individual products from suppliers at conditions for research and teaching.
We currently have many enquiries about apps and cloud services, especially from US providers. As a rule, the IMT cannot procure these, as many of these services involve the processing of personal data in the USA, which requires complex regulations/contracts, if at all possible.
In terms of software offerings, there are various licensing and cost allocation models, ranging from centrally financed university-wide licences, campus licences that are allocated to fields, framework agreements through which individual products can be acquired at a discount, to individual licences that can be purchased or rented.
The persons entitled to use the software (employees, employees in research and teaching, lecturers, students, ...) and the licence conditions (use only for research and teaching, use only on business computers, number of possible installations, personal licences, device licences, ...) also differ depending on the software product, as do the operating systems supported.
On the following pages you will find the conditions under which you can use the respective software and information on whether and what costs may be incurred for you or your field.
If special forms or web pages for ordering are given for the software, please use these to make it easier for us to organise. Otherwise, you can use the general order form.
The links to the individual software products can only be accessed internally at the university.
