Designed by the star architect Zaha Hadid, the new campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business is a cutting edge place of learning. Students can find all the information they need about lectures, events, opening hours and other information on a network of screens throughout the campus, powered by Grassfish software. The system interfaces with the university’s data management system to obtain and distribute scheduling information to all the right screens at the right times. With Grassfish’s centralized content management system, users can easily create template-based spots manually or generate them dynamically. The Grassfish system also interfaces with the university’s facility management system, e.g. to automatically and instantly display emergency information when an alarm is triggered.
