Bitlab in Trade and Industry

Bitlab are working closely together with many companies in the trade and industry.

Cooperations with universities

Bitlab are responsible for SANTE Academy which is a cooperation between universities for the use of business software in academic teaching and research.

SANTE stands for Scandinavian Academic Network for Teaching Enterprise Systems.

SANTE gives students the ability to work with different types of business systems like ERP-systems, accounting systems and Business Intelligence systems without the need to install these systems on their hardware.

Through this, students are getting useful practise with real business systems.

The server farm

Bitlab runs a virtual cluster on a server farm that acts as a hub for education.

The server farm consists of servers running Microsoft Hyper-V that can virtualize multiple installations on the same cluster, for example ERP-systems that can handle a large amount of students.

The installations have accounts and configured datasets that are suited for exercises for member universities in SANTE Academy. In these installations students, teachers and researchers can test out the systems and work freely.

It is also possible to build specialized IT-solutions in the virtual cluster.
