Increasing our technology, data and vendor independence

Our strategy, enacted through the MALT project, seeks open software solutions and products with simple exit strategies and low switching costs.

The project aims to deliver services inclusive of all the CERN community. The project’s principles of engagement are to deliver the same service to every category of CERN user, to avoid vendor lock-in so as to decrease risk and dependency, to keep hands on the data and to serve the common use-cases.
