Google Apps And City of Canton, Georgia

Camille Wehs, the IT director for the City of Canton, Georgia says she sleeps better these days! So waht was she doing before these good sleeping days? She was battling network demons, Spam, viruses and such things on cities IT infrastructure and supporting the entire city staff from her onewoman operation.
What has given her a peace of mind is that she wisely decided to let someone else have the burden of running the servers for her, and that someone is Google and she seem to be very content with her work. She has moved the
IT infrastructure to Google Apps.

She mentions that
her fellow city employees now have more functionality at hand than they did before, from anywhere. The applications in use are instant messaging, video, and site publishing tools in addition to the basics of email, calendar, and word processing/spreadsheets. Just the same we use at my work and my home, from the same provider, Google Apps that we wrote about in 2007.

Whats more is
Camille Wehs is having a webinar, to explain how and what she did to move her IT operations to Google Apps and to answer any questions that you may have. Following is the Webinar information. You can read more her guest blog post, on Google Enterprise Blog.
Webinar next Thursday, January 22, 2009, at 1:00 PM EST, 12:00 PM CST, 10:00 AM PST
