aikux GmbH again receives ZIM innovation funding
The development of the innovative migRaven software is being promoted by the BMWi for the third time in a row since 2016.
The success story of aikux GmbH and its software for data and authorization management "migRaven" goes into the next round: The development of a new module, which migRaven extends with intelligent algorithms for generating file identifications ("tags"), takes over 12 months funded by the Central Innovation Program for SMEs (ZIM).
A corresponding application was approved by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) in May 2019. This is the third time that aikux GmbH has received funding for its innovative technology approach in the development of migRaven.
The demands on the file server are becoming more and more complex in the course of the digital change: Employees must be able to quickly and easily gain access to the data that is important to them, despite the increasing amounts of data. At the same time, more than ever, businesses need to be concerned about data security and should not ignore the correctly set access permissions for the files.
Short version of the project description
The aim of the funded research project is to expand migRaven with a module that meets these extended information requirements. The core element of the module will be intelligent algorithms for generating tags (tags) of files based on their contents. These tags can then be used as the basis for rules for data and authorization management. That is, it can be decided automatically by the new module based on the contents of files, how to deal with the files or who should have access rights, what types of actions are permitted with these files and what should be prevented. The module will allow companies, public authorities and institutions to implement the increased data protection requirements since the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and to better protect their IT and control access. The algorithms to be explored are built from a complex combination of different methods of machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP).
Central Innovation Program for SMEs (ZIM)
The Central Innovation Program for SMEs (ZIM) of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) is the largest program for the market-oriented promotion of innovative SMEs in Germany. It is technology and industry open and is intended to sustainably strengthen the innovative strength and competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises as well as to contribute to the growth of companies and thus also create and secure jobs.
The support from eligible Berlin, which helped again with the application for the funds, should not go unmentioned. "The consultants at sponsable already supported us so well in the first two projects that we sponsored, that this time we also resorted to their help," says Thomas Gomell, Managing Director of aikux GmbH.
