Research and develop

Materna works closely with several research and development partners. These activities include participating regularly in research projects such as EASI-CLOUDS and Building as a Service (BaaS). EASI-CLOUDS is an EU-funded initiative which creates interoperable and dynamic cloud infrastructures based on medical image processing. Materna is one of the 26 partners in this project. BaaS is involved in developing a software platform for the configuration, operation and maintenance of intelligent building infrastructures (building management systems) on the basis of a common data model.

Nearshoring

In the fast-moving IT sector customers are increasingly on the lookout for alternative development scenarios. To meet this demand Materna has extended the depth of its value added with a nearshoring option at its facility in Bratislava in Slovakia. Development services can also be carried out from there, for example, when customers also need Materna services at international locations.

Certified according to ISO 27001

As the situation for IT security becomes more and more critical throughout the world, information security has become a key topic for business leaders. However, ISO 27001, an internationally recognized standard for information security, defines an information security management system (ISMS) which takes this threatening situation into account. It establishes information security as a permanent component of IT operations and business processes. Materna is certified according to this standard which means external auditors regularly check and confirm that Materna fulfils its statutory responsibility concerning security and risk prevention for IT operations.
