I want to give a very special thanks to the National Research Center for publishing such a great article on the recent "Talking the Talk" of Technology event that occured in partnership with the Colorado Municipal League on  April 7, 2016. 

Here are the highlights from the event: 

Featuring Special Guest: City of Littleton discussed how they recently made a jump from Microsoft Systems to going completely Google – after being faced with issues such as:

  • Limited external access to email, calendars, etc.
  • Limited email storage capacity.
  • Collaborative processes that wasted time emailing back and forth multiple versions of files.
  • The need to buy and maintain an email server.

The City of Littleton made a full conversion to Google systems in 2014 and have since then experienced substantial internal operational improvements.

Bonus Material:
