Innovation through Cooperation

Our network of software vendors and technology partners and the cooperation with universities, research institutions and industry analysts help us provide innovative, leading-edge identity and access management solutions.


Academic Outreach

Foster Further Development

iC Consult has been working closely for more than 10 years with various universities and research institutions. Our goal is to introduce students to the newest developments in Identity and Access Management and involve them in projects with real-world relevance.

Our consultants supervise Bachelor’s and Master’s theses, train interns and lecture on various actual topics such as cloud security, OAuth, OpenID Connect, REST APIs or highly secure IDM system. Periodic talks and lectures provide the students with detailed insight into the latest developments in the industry. Our goal is to supplement students’ academic knowledge with practical examples of enterprise IT technologies, architectures, and solutions.

Currently, we collaborate with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU), the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (Leibniz-Rechenzentrum, LRZ) and the Stuttgart Media University (HdM).
