- Google Apps Partner Onix Networking: Another Government Win
- Google Apps for Government Partners
Indeed, Onix transitioned nearly 1,200 Columbia employees to Google Apps for Government in April 2012, according to City Manager Mike Matthes. Eighty percent of the city's employees are mobile -- and now police, fire and public works staff can easily check email, documents and sites while in the field, Matthes noted. Not by coincidence, Matthes had previously been involved in the City of Des Moines, Iowa, Google Apps migration.
Both Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365 have been catching on with government customers. Office 365, which includes SharePoint Online, Exchange Online and more, recently earned FISMA certification -- which could make it even more appealing to government customers. (Google Apps had already earned that certification.)
