Software for the RWTH Aachen University
Recent information about the software products can be found in the status messages for software.
The IT Center provides numerous software products for institutes and members of the RWTH Aachen University. Our aim is to acquire software products at favorable prices by bundling licenses for multiple institutes and closing license deals. Thus, we can achieve price advantages which we pass on to RWTH Aachen institutions. The IT Center manages the contracts and business affairs with the software companies as well as license renewal issues and the deployment of software updates.
The license agreements are usually pre-financed by the IT Center. To cover the costs, the license fees are later allocated to the institutions according to their scope of use. Software licenses can be purchased through the software shop while microsoft azure dev tools for teaching licenses can be acquired through the ELMS portal.
Network licenses are provided and monitored by one of our license servers.
