Today, the County of Santa Clara in the heart of Silicon Valley announced they’re moving to the cloud with Microsoft Office 365. They plan to upgrade and consolidate their multiple countrywide email systems for 15,000 employees in 26 public agencies and departments.
Previously, county departments made technology decisions separately which lead to multiple countywide email systems, redundancies and unnecessary IT costs. The County of Santa Clara chose Office 365 because they wanted to provide their employees with new collaboration technologies to help better serve the county’s residents.
The county’s decision to move to Office 365 will allow them to not only save the county money, but help employees across departments and in the field to have familiar and secure tools at their fingertips.
Office 365 will also provide the county a broad range of services that meet their needs to have better governance over spending, visibility into their IT assets and improved employee performance through collaboration and productivity solutions, offered by services like Lync.
The County of Santa Clara is always looking for new technologies to streamline community resources for its residents and moving to the cloud with Office 365 is the latest step on that journey. Welcome to the cloud! Read the full story here.
