Nextcloud Enterprise Day is soon here and we have an amazing lineup of speakers providing insightful talks!
One of those speakers is Ralf Sutorius, Lead Enterprise Architect at City of Cologne.
In preparation for their talk at Nextcloud Enterprise Day on June 13th, we asked their Lead Enterprise Architect, Ralf Sutorius, a few questions!
Could you introduce yourself and the IT at City of Cologne?
“I work as a Lead Enterprise Architect at the central IT service provider for the City of Cologne. With our 450 IT specialists, we operate two geo-redundant data centers, over 850 applications and support more than 20,000 users. Our mission is as follows: “We drive digitization of business processes and deliver best services for our users and citizens.”
Could you explain why the city chose to deploy Nextcloud?
“We are convinced that the future of applications is on the web. Netxcloud provides core web-based capabilities such as file services, office application integration, collaboration and information sharing. So we see Nextcloud Hub as a strategic component in a web-based workplace of the future, which furthermore supports our path to digital sovereignty as an open source product.”
What will be the key take-aways for people who listen to your talk at the Enterprise Day?
“Possible key take-aways are:
Why Nextcloud plays an important role for a web-based workplace
How to use and enrich Nextcloud
How we integrated OpenProject, an open source project management software and Kerberos based access to NAS-Filer.”
Answers are from Ralf Sutorius, Lead Enterprise Architect at the City of Cologne

As part of Schleswig-Holstein's state digitization strategy, the state chancellery has announced they will work with Nextcloud to develop AI for working with government documents. This comes just after we announced the first private AI assistant last weekend with Hub 6. The German state already uses Nextcloud and their AI strategy aligns with our work on ethical, local AI technologies.
Over the last year, AI has become a popular topic. Some is hype, some is substance. Some is good, some is bad. We want to give you the good, not the bad, and ignore the hype! AI has a ton of opportunity – but also risk. So we put you in control – off by […]
The serious security flaws in ownCloud (now owned by Kiteworks) do NOT affect Nextcloud. We have strict security processes in place, and do not ship test data from libraries that can cause security breaches.
