### Why Did CERN Choose GitLab?
Alexandre Lossent, Service Manager for the Version Control Systems at CERN, explained that part of their user community has a preference for open-source software; GitLab was also cheaper than other alternatives.
Alexandre Lossent, Service Manager for the Version Control Systems at CERN, explained that part of their user community has a preference for open source software; GitLab was also cheaper than other alternatives.
The most significant benefit is probably how easy GitLab makes it to create a project and start working. Lossent said, “We had more than 2000 projects in a few months, a very fast adoption rate compared to our other code hosting platforms.”
He has also found that the internal adoption of GitLab is spreading throughout CERN. He said “While we are not yet actively asking users to move their projects to GitLab, many are attracted by GitLab's features and move proactively.”

Not only are they an active team of users, they have also offered contributions. Lossent contributed the SAML code they wrote for their own usage, and earned an [MVP recognition](https://about.gitlab.com/mvp/) in June 2015. Thanks to their effort, GitLab can be configured to act as a SAML 2.0 Service Provider, [since release 7.12](https://about.gitlab.com/2015/06/22/gitlab-7-12-released/). For this reason, the advantage of an open source code base management tool is clear.
