didmos - the In-House Developed IAM framework
didmos is an open source framework for Identity & Access Management (IAM) made by DAASI International. In contrast to stiff standard solutions, didmos flexibly adapts to already existing IT structures and work processes. That is possible by the use of six synchronised and expansible modules.

In this way, we facilitate the users’ daily work despite an increasing complexity of IT landscapes and enable new working methods. We offer our employees an interesting workplace with projects which match our values. This includes, among others, research in the Digital Humanities – a field that we support in national and international projects to contribute our share to a common good and fulfill our corporate social responsibility.
We are one of the leading open source providers in the areas of Identity & Access Management and Digital Humanities. Through the support of open source products and open standards as well as with our commitment to research, we stand out and make a valuable contribution to the common good.
