EDP and IT play a key role in the economy and society. After all, they can simplify, accelerate and secure many processes and activities. For this reason, IT managers are always responsible for appropriately applying technology and expertise and enabling innovation that everyone can benefit from. In light of the major challenges of the 21st century, having the right people for IT positions in companies and organisations is becoming more and more important, allowing people to bring together progress and responsibility. ADventas is therefore committed to training junior talent in IT management and also actively promotes women in the tech industry.
Peter Langner, founder and owner of ADventas, is a member of various organisations which he and his team support:
With about 24,500 members, the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI) is the largest organisation representing IT professionals in the german-speaking region. Since 1969 it has been promoting the exchange of ideas among all social groups.
While Peter Langner was working for innobis AG, he established and directed through the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. the “Petri nets in practice” working group.
The XING group SAPNetHH focuses on personal dialogue concerning technologies, current trends, clients, projects and companies in the SAP world in and around Hamburg. Meetings are held regularly to promote professional dialogue and networking among the members.
Peter Langner is actively involved in this group as a co-moderator.
Girls’ Day takes place every year in April. On this day companies and workplaces open their doors to girls in grade 5 and above. The intent is to inspire and motivate girls to pursue careers in areas in which women are under-represented.
Since 2010 ADventas has been offering girls an opportunity on Girls’ Day to gain their first experience as computer scientists. Using Scratch, a programming language developed specifically for children, the girls are able to gain some practical experience by programming a game.
HIForum e.V. is a non-profit organisation comprising students, alumni and companies united by the shared goal of promoting a professional exchange of opinion and information among current and former members of the University of Hamburg’s computer science department and its partners in industry, science and business. Regularly ADventas invites students to join the firm with an internship and also gladly works with them on their bachelor’s or master’s thesis.
Children’s International Summer Villages (CISV) was founded more than 50 years ago. The purpose of CISV is to promote world peace by bringing together children and young people from different countries and cultures. Mutual understanding and respect are fostered through holiday activity programmes and exchange programmes.
Peter Langner has been active for many years as a youth group leader for international and national activity programmes.
