All beginnings are difficult
For political reasons, Saeid Fasihi flees Iran and comes to Germany as an asylum seeker. With a lot of patience and willpower he builds a new life here.
He spends most of his days as a guest auditor in the computer center of the University of Heidelberg and completes a number of courses. Later, he is given the opportunity to complete an official degree at the University of Mannheim and applies with BASF as a programmer.
The foundation is built
Mr. Fasihi registers a trade as an IT programmer in Ludwigshafen: Fasihi Database Internet Service. As a freelancer in the planning and market research department of BASF, he is in charge of application programming and software support.
He gradually attracts other BASF departments as customers for his consulting services as well as for his web design services.
It's time to take on responsibility
Fasihi installs the first Netscape web server for BASF market research and starts to design and administrate websites. This brings more BASF departments as customers. His workplace on the company premises allows Mr. Fasihi to serve his customers quickly and efficiently.
A web-based information and communication system is implemented in the BASF intranet, the administration and further development of which is assigned to Fasihi.
Fasihi Enterprise Portal®
For the scientific department of BASF, Fasihi implements a portal with Single Sign On to a large number of databases. Administration processes are automated, and users can define individually which content they want to see.
Later the portal will be extended by a multi-user content management system and various functions for the creation of web contents: the Fasihi Enterprise Portal® is born.
