More than 20 interested students from the University of Mainz and the Technical College Rhein Main attended this year's open house at AOE headquarters in Wiesbaden. Founder and CEO Kian Gould spent time with the guests to introduce AOE, discussed agile concepts and development methods and presented key references.

Afterwards, things got more specific: Scrum Master Thomas Layh and Product Owner Oliver Hoffmann-Vigneron explained the agile development method Scrum using the Connected Car (ConCar) project as an example. Developer Bastian Ike then showed how shop development and automated testing take place at AOE. The students were enthusiastic and eagerly asked questions.

Lukas Hück concluded the presentations with a practical example from the point-of-view of a student who describes his start at AOE as a full-time developer after his studies of media informatics at the Technical College RheinMain. Lukas described the knowledge he was still lacking after his studies and how he was able to acquire this missing knowledge in a very short time with the assistance of helpful colleagues, AOE's mentoring program as well as his own willingness to learn.

After the presentations, the guest were given a guided tour through the AOE offices, where the recreational area with pool table, massage room as well as table tennis and -football were some of the the students' highlights – in addition to the state-of-the-art workplaces. The tour concluded the “formal” portion of the open house; during the causal “Chill & Grill” on our expansive terrace, guests and AOE employees had the opportunity to get to know each other better while enjoying steak and beer. The last students gave Lukas a run for his money during a world-class soccer match on the Sony Playstation.

Combining expertise in cybersecurity: AOE launches subsidiary Bare.ID

WIESBADEN, August 09, 2021 - AOE, one of the world's leading service providers for digital transformation, headquartered in Wiesbaden, the capital of the German state of Hesse, is launching Bare.ID, a fully-managed-as-a-service identity, authentication and authorization solution. Hosted exclusively as a central single sign-on authentication and authorization point in German data centers, the identity management solution administers a directory of identities (PII) and their access rights to the various applications. AOE guarantees the highest security standards and complies with German data protection regulations. Bare.ID serves as a central single sign-on authentication and authorization point for application landscapes and connects all services via standard protocols such as OpenID Connect or SAML. Furthermore, Bare.ID manages information about the identities of users. These can either be maintained manually by the customer or can be connected via federation techniques to external identity sources such as an existing Active Directory or Identity and Access Management System at the customer's site, but also third party single sign-on systems. At the same time, Bare.ID enables customers to obtain an overview of accesses, login failures, insecure or expired passwords or orphaned accounts for their internal compliance reports and then also to integrate these into their own security incident event monitoring. IT departments can thus be sustainably supported and relieved in the creation and administration of user accounts – while adhering to company-internal compliance guidelines. Thanks to preconfigured applications, users can use Bare.ID without any specialist knowledge; the technical complexity and the security-relevant configurations are not visible to the user. The fact that the proper handling of personal data and business-critical information is no longer a voluntary option is well known. Bare.ID stores all data in daily backups highly secure alternatively in two data centers located in Germany. "Our participation in the initiatives "IT Security – Made in Germany", "Software Hosted in Germany" as well as Cloud Services – Made in Germany" are proof of trustworthy security solutions from AOE. Bare.ID thus complies with strict German data protection laws," says Steffen Ritter, Commercial Director Cybersecurity at AOE GmbH.
