Dr. Jung and Partner History
Dr. Jung & Partner Software & Consulting AG was founded in 1995 by Dr. Hermann Jung. At the time, Dr. Jung was a professor of computer science in Saarbrücken and Berlin, Germany. Dr. Jung’s brother, Detlef Jung, who co-owned a private engineering lab for materials testing, convinced Dr. Jung to develop an information management system, because no such product existed. Together with another private lab, Asphalta, the initial LASTRADA project began.
Twenty years later in 2016, Dr. Jung & Partner Software & Consulting employ approximately 20 staff members and support thousands of users in more than 200 companies across 20 countries.
