Today New York Governor Cuomo announced an agreement with Microsoft for a statewide implementation of Office 365. This will be one of the largest single government implementations of Office 365 and will provide the State of New York over $3 million in savings annually.
“Transforming the State’s IT infrastructure and sourcing is critical to operating an efficient government that provides accurate and timely services to New Yorkers,” Governor Cuomo said. “Our agreement with Microsoft will help us do just that: it will make collaboration among state agencies easier and increase productivity, in addition to saving approximately $3 million annually for taxpayers. This agreement shows the progress we are making in our efforts to make state government more resourceful while delivering results for New Yorkers.”
