Bochum decided to revisit how they handle the distribution of this software. The university was in the process of redesigning their existing software-download site, which they saw as an opportunity to assess third-party options. The goal was to find a more efficient way to distribute digital resources – one that was more secure, easier for end users, and a centralized portal with one single sign-on (SSO) mechanism that will be less of a burden to manage than the institution’s existing system.
