Supported by the German Ministry for Education and Research, the University of Duisburg-Essen hosted the German Innovation Forum “Innovation interaktiv!” from 5-6 July 2018. The Forum addresses small and medium enterprises (SME) to help those bringing innovations to market.


Dr. Andreas Metzger (paluno, the Ruhr Institute for Software Technology of the University of Duisburg-Essen) chaired a session on digital transformation and data protection. In his role as chief architect of RestAssured, he showcased the project’s ambition, innovation pillars and high-level technical architecture.


The discussions during the session clearly indicated that secure data processing is a key concern for SMEs and novel solutions for data protection in the cloud are key to deliver future digital products and services.
