CERN bails on Facebook’s Workplace, cites cost Leave a comment

Editor’s note: This story has been updated with new information about CERN’s rationale for moving away from Facebook Workplace.

Research organization CERN will replace Facebook’s Workplace with an open-source alternative after deciding not to move to a new free version of the collaboration software that would eliminate enterprise management features.

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, first rolled out Workplace’s free Standard version in 2016.
