  • Creating a unified technology infrastructure and a sense of cohesiveness for 54,000 state employees.

    Why Google Apps

    With 54,000 state employees scattered across 60 independent agencies, most with their own IT department, the Maryland state government faces challenges in creating a unified technology infrastructure.

    Benefits

    With Google Apps for Government, all state government data and emails remain in a secure cloud that is compliant with FISMA standards. Instead of each agency buying and running its own security systems, now Google lets us secure data on a global, enterprise-wide scale.

    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.

    Why Google Apps

    As we shift from “business as usual” processes and tools towards innovative solutions that enable the efficient, effective, and elegant delivery of services, we look more and more to cloud-based services and solutions.

    Benefits

    The move to Google Apps for Government allowed us to replace 15 siloed and disparate email systems, and the 50 servers supporting them, into a single, cloud-based solution. Our 26,000 employees now have a common email, calendar and collaboration system, and they have the ability to work together and share information across departments.

  • 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.

  • With Gmail , we are moving from a shot glass to a swimming pool!

    Why Google Apps

    Our current system is more than 10 years old and lacks any modern features. Employees struggle to access information on their mobile devices and people spend valuable time deleting emails because our mailboxes do not have enough space. Given the age of our system, we have seen a steep increase in outages as well.

    Benefits

    We will offer a more secure, stable, modern and scalable cloud solution to the City and County. Employees will now be able to communicate instantly and work collaboratively online, even if they are miles apart. Mailbox size alone has people cheering -- one of our employees made the comparison that we will be moving from a shot glass to a swimming pool!
