Today Google announced on their official Blog that the City of Los Angeles is kicking off an effort to transition over 30,000 employees to cloud computing and Google Apps.

The story of Los Angeles moving to Google Apps started early this year, when the city’s Chief Technology Officer, Randi Levin, and her team at the Information Technology Agency (ITA) looked to replace their aging, on-premise system with more secure, productivity-focused technology. After calling for proposals and carefully evaluating over 14 different ones, Randi and the ITA decided to revamp the city government’s email technology by adopting Google Apps.

Los Angeles will be the first major city and the largest in the US to move to Google’s platform. At the time Google’s bid was approved by the Los Angeles City Council, Councilman Tony Cardenas, who made the motion in Council to go Google, told the Los Angeles Times that the City had made a “world-class decision” to go Google.  CTO Randi Levin explains in more depth her organization’s decision to go Google in this post at Google’s Enterprise Blog

For the last year, SADA Systems, Inc. has been a part of supporting this effort.  Beginning today we are proud, along with Computer Sciences Corporation to be part of the Google team that will implement the solution for the City.
