Wyoming to Move State Employees to Google Apps

October 27, 2010 By Matt Williams

Google landed a jab Wednesday, Oct. 27, in its ongoing competition with Microsoft for supremacy in the state and local government market. Wyoming will migrate the state government’s 10,000 employees to the Google Apps for Government productivity suite within a year, officials said.

Wyoming will become the first state to adopt Google Apps enterprisewide, the company said. Google Apps for Government includes the tools available in the consumer version — e-mail, documents, sites, calendar and video — and also adds on Federal Information Security Management Act certification, disaster recovery, and the customer’s data is located in U.S.-based servers.
