Secure IT infrastructures and services are the basis for digital sovereignty. Citizens and companies entrust sensitive data to the state and its administrative bodies on a daily basis. As an institution under public law, we help to protect this data.
We are an IT service provider for public administration and are committed to IT security without compromises. We test new technologies thoroughly and optimise them for use in public administration.
In collaboration with local authorities and state governments (Länder), we shape digital change in society. We develop innovative IT services which simplify administrative procedures for both public authorities and citizens.
We help make the digital transition a success.
Digital sovereignty describes the state’s ability to communicate and act digitally.
Dr. Johann Bizer
CEO of Dataport
We analyse digital change comprehensively and collaboratively for six Länder and one IT association for local authorities, and for both state and local administrations: a unique scope of services. As a public-law institution, we are a not-for-profit body and are able to concentrate on finding the best solution for each situation.
Our mission is to enable the public sector to use modern organisational forms, processes and techniques – without jeopardising the security and integrity of its data. Our employees’ unique expertise in both IT and public administration enables them to successfully support public institutions through the digital transformation.
Collaboration is our strength. Our teams and projects are characterised by agile working methods. We want more: more ideas, more thinking outside the box, more visionaries, more meaning. A good working atmosphere is important to us. We pay attention to work-life balance and offer flexible working hours. We respect the principle of equal opportunity. 30% of our current management team are women, and we aim to increase this proportion.
