Introduction UCC

SAP UCC Magdeburg is an independent unit of the Faculty of Computer Science at Otto-von-Guericke-University of Magdeburg.

Originally planned for 30 customers, SAP UCC Magdeburg served more than 600 institutions of higher education in 2020 with 230 hosted SAP systems. With 6,361 registered lecturers and more than 100,000 students it is the largest of the five UCCs in the world.

“UCC Magdeburg does not only produce quantity, but also high quality. Innovative research takes place here. We highly appreciate working and exchanging experience with the University of Magdeburg. Results of our cooperation are integrated into product development at SAP.“

Gerhard Oswald, member of SAP's supervisory board

This successful development would not be possible without the support of our partners: Hewlett-Packard and T-Systems. Whereas HP provides hardware infrastructure, T-Systems contributes know-how for professional cloud service provisioning.

The SAP University Alliances Program fosters practical and future-oriented education. SAP enables lecturers and students around the world to access newest SAP technologies and helps apply them in teaching and research. The UCCs provide end-to-end service and maintenance of SAP solutions in a private cloud. By doing so, lecturers and researchers can concentrate on their competences. In addition, the UCCs develop innovative learning environments, conduct train-the-trainer courses for professors and lecturers, and provide curricula for teaching.

Traditionally, SAP has close ties with Otto von Guericke University of Magdeburg and supports research by sponsoring five postgraduates. Topics such as virtualization, analytics, and cloud computing are on their research agenda.
