ESG Elektroniksystem- und Logistik has been assigned the role of general contractor by the City of Munich to integrate and supervise the new groupware system for its municipal departments and municipally-owned companies.

The Kolab groupware solution from Kolab Systems AG in Switzerland, originally developed for the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), will be employed as part of the MigMak project (migration mail and calendar system). Decisive factors in the winning bid included technical aspects and comprehensive support for the IT security concept of the City of Munich. As a result, the Kolab Desktop Client and Kolab web client based on Kolab Enterprise 13 both on more than 14,000 LiMux PC will be used, as well as on the remaining Windows devices with the city’s municipal department. A further aspect is that the solution is to be provided as completely open-source technology, including the necessary professional support. Conversion and migration will be supported by a customised training concept including a web-based training module that will be developed and implemented by szenaris in Bremen.

As general contractor, ESG is responsible for the success of the entire project and will also ensure smooth implementation of the following service components:

  • System specification
  • A migration and integration concept to transfer the desired data from the old systems to the new groupware solution and to connect third party systems.
  • Installation, configuration, migration, testing and commissioning of the software according to the migration and integration concept
