As government agencies prepare for this week’s Lean Government Virtual Summit, cloud innovation will surely be a hot topic. So why should governments choose Microsoft Office 365 as they consider moving their productivity software to the cloud?
The infographic below highlights the advantages of Office 365 versus Google Apps for government agencies. As you can see from the infographic, the benefits of Office 365 are many:
- Office 365 offers governments substantial cost savings.
- Governments can rest assured their information is protected and their tools accessible to people with visual and hearing impairments.
- Office 365 makes it easy for governments to meet email retention policies and fulfill legal discovery requests.
- Governments have the tools they need to be highly responsive to the citizens they serve.
As Todd Kimbriel, Director of E-Government for the Texas Department of Information Resource, puts it: “No other solution provides the rich capabilities of Office 365, including web conferencing, real-time collaboration, and document and calendar sharing.”
We hope you find the infographic helpful! Also, please note that officials from the City of Kansas City, Missouri and the U.S. Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board will be discussing their experiences with Office 365 at the Lean Government Virtual Summit.
