A partnership between CSC and Google has brought cloud computing to more than 15,000 Los Angeles City workers, the companies announced last week.

In addition to setting up the Google Apps suite for collaboration, video and email, CSC will work on security, training and systems integration.

“Thanks to the CSC-led project team and the new Google Apps suite of tools, the City of Los Angeles is experiencing greater efficiency and productivity gains while lowering operational costs,” said Randi Levin, chief technology officer and general manager of the Los Angeles Information Technology Agency.

CSC has been working with the City of Los Angeles since November of last year to upgrade its email and collaboration systems. The city now only needs to transition four more departments to the new platform, chiefly public safety workers.

“Through the extraordinary teamwork of the City of Los Angeles, CSC and Google, more than 15,000 city employees have migrated to Google Apps leveraging our Trusted Cloud Computing solution,” said Mike Gaffney, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector Civil and Health Services Group. “We are pleased to support the mission-critical communication and collaboration efforts of the City of Los Angeles and its employees.”
