  • Moving to Google Apps in just 3 days

    Why Google Apps

    Challenging budget circumstances in Larimer County, Colorado, required officials to look for ways to run government more efficiently at lower cost.

    Benefits

    Moving to Google Apps reduced overhead and increased productivity by allowing access to information anywhere employees can get online, allowing the county to repurpose resources into projects that build the local economy.

    Larimer County

  • We are going to improve our mobility and collaboration for 10,000 state employees, saving the state of Wyoming $1M a year.

    Why Google Apps

    Wyoming state agencies needed to unite and standardize a scattered IT environment that contained more than a dozen email platforms, had no naming conventions or common address book and was operating with huge variations in email retention policies.

    Benefits

    Wyoming now has a unified communications system, saving a million dollars a year; data is more secure than with its previous systems; and email retention policies can be enforced uniformly.

    State of Wyoming

  • Improving collaboration for more efficient scientific research

    Why Google Apps

    Some of the toughest problems in science require experts to come together from across disciplines to collaborate on experiments, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory needed the next generation of technology tools to support “team science.”

    Benefits

    The Berkeley Lab now uses Google’s highly efficient data centers instead of operating its own, reducing internal infrastructure costs and freeing data center and personnel capacity for other uses.

    Berkeley Lab

    A member of the national laboratory system supported by the Department of Energy, conducts unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines.
