CSC announced today that it will begin work on a contract awarded by the City of Los Angeles to replace the current email and additional applications used by the city with Google Apps. The contract is for three years with two one year options.
Under the contract, CSC will provide end user services and systems integration. Tom Anderson, president of the North American Public Sector Civil and Health Services Group at CSC, said “CSC looks forward to working with Google to support the mission-critical communication and collaboration efforts of Los Angeles’ more than 30, 000 employees as they focus on improving citizen services through transparency. The City of LA is one of our many customers who are looking to us for guidance and power of choice for different solutions as they transition to the cloud.”
Randi Levin, CTO and general manager at the LA Information and Technology Agency, said “By incorporating CSC’s cloud computing integration and security expertise with Google’s innovative cloud applications, the City of Los Angeles will dramatically lower operational costs while significantly improving the end-user experience and productivity.”
