San Francisco's disaster readiness will reach a whole new level with Infor EAM in the cloud.
The city and county of San Francisco determined that a software-as-a-service (SaaS) deployment is the most effective option for enhancing inter-department asset management, reducing IT costs and improving the safety and accessibility of data.
"We selected cloud deployment of Infor EAM because it delivers a predictable total cost of ownership and ensures that our data is secure in case of an emergency situation," said Jon Walton, CIO, city and county of San Francisco. "Infor ION stands out among competitors and made Infor the obvious choice because it provides the ability to quickly integrate our EAM solution with other applications, unifying the user experience and enabling continuous data flow between any future technologies."
By selecting SaaS deployment for Infor EAM, San Francisco eliminated the need to purchase on-site hardware and reduced its initial investment. The solution enables user friendly access from virtually any computer or mobile device, making it easier to share data between city divisions and improve service to constituents.
"More municipalities are opting for SaaS deployment to handle disaster preparedness concerns, particularly as shrinking IT budgets remain a common pain point for government offices," said Kevin Curry, SVP, Public Sector, Infor. "Infor EAM delivers the same functionality as the on-premises solution, but is less demanding on the time and budgets of IT departments and provides greater flexibility for future expansion."
