How to transform online citizen engagement in weeks

"Moving our website infrastructure to the cloud provides the scalability and availability we need to ensure more than one million citizens have continuous access to critical information from all county departments, while also reducing operating costs."
Cliff Dupuy, Director of Infrastructure Services, Mecklenburg County

Doing more with less

"As public clouds mature, they become very cost-effective options for us. They give us tremendous scalability and flexibility advantages. We don’t have to keep physical infrastructure on hand for temporary workloads such as testing. Running a server on-premises might cost us $60 a month, while running an Azure Virtual Machine might cost us just $20 a month."
Marco Arnhold, Systems Engineer III in the City of Henderson IT department

Embracing the cloud in sunny California

"We're trying to do more with less all the time, and we have to do more than just keep the lights on. By innovating on Microsoft cloud services, we can be more efficient, provide better resources both internally and externally, and make decisions better, faster, and more accurately."
Chris McMasters, Chief Information Officer for City of Corona
