The City of Los Angeles recently migrated from their old email system to Google Apps for their 30,000 employees. The CIO believes that Google Apps will save the city of Los Angeles millions of dollars by allowing them to shift resources currently dedicated to email to other purposes. For example, moving to Google will free up nearly 100 servers that were used for their existing email system, which will lower their electricity bills by almost $750,000 over five years. In short, this decision helps them to get the most out of the city’s IT budget.
The CIO of LA compiled some of benefits the users will see including:
Much of the city’s work requires multiple people. Even multiple departments to work together. With instant messaging, video conferencing, and simultaneous review and editing of documents by multiple people, employees will have better tools to work together on projects.
