As a SharePoint advocate within the City of Calgary I was invited to participate in a Case Study video produced by Microsoft.
This invitation came on the heals of my personal advocacy presentation that demonstrated the core features of MS-SP for City staff.
City of Calgary prepares for future of citizen service delivery with help of SharePoint 2007, Office Communications Server 2007, and Office 2007
The City of Calgary wants to provide access to city information and to city services at all times and in formats and on devices that are more convenient for citizens. The City also wants to lower the cost of providing information and delivering services. The Microsoft solution was chosen for Calgary.ca because it offered the functionality that the City required at a lower cost than competing offerings.
Being a customer with a full platform Enterprise Agreement, the City already had much of the licensing required to enable the content creation and workflow required internally to support the web presence. A solution based on SharePoint Server 2007 and Office Communicator 2007 offered the most seamless integration with it its largely Microsoft based infrastructure and the Citizen Service Platform reduced both the cost and the development time.
This is a Video Only Case Study. Please be sure to view the available video for additional information.
