The last weeks, open source has been making waves in public organizations! Last month, Nextcloud won the German Federal Government and we reported on a wave of cities all over Europe moving to Nextcloud. This week brought another piece of good news: Bern, the capital of Switzerland, is moving its schools to Nextcloud in what is dubbed another huge win for Open Source in public organizations.
35.000 students and teachers get open source
Der Bund, one of Switzerland’s largest newspapers, reports on the digitalization of schools in Bern with new hard- and software. Nextcloud is an important part of the mix provided for the 10.000 students, and the deployment will be backed by the expertise of Nextcloud GmbH. On Inside-channels.ch a list of the products is shared, including Moodle, Collabora Online and of course Nextcloud.
We’re proud to be part of what according to Matthias Stürmer, EPP city councillor and IT expert, is probably the largest open source order ever in Switzerland!
