RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider execution of an agreement with Microsoft for 800 Microsoft Office licenses, 800 CoreCal Bridges licenses, and 800 Advanced Threat Protection licenses.
BACKGROUND
DISCUSSION
The services provided to all Nueces County offices and departments include: • Cloud email • Cloud Storage for increased mobility and secured sharing of digital media • Government level security for all data stored in the cloud and Advanced Threat Protection for email • Microsoft Office 365 subscription (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Publisher) We will no longer need to purchase the $445 Microsoft software package with each computer purchase. Information Technology will no longer need to maintain datacenter equipment and licensing to support the county email. Any departments using 3rd party cloud storage (Dropbox, Box.net, Google Drive, etc) can migrate their data and eliminate subscription costs. Once implemented, it will eliminate countywide email storage issues, improve the DA to CCPD communication process, reduce overhead for the Tax Office to maintain ACT with taxing units, and put us on the right path to meeting future required government standards of security. The licenses are being purchased with SHI Government Solutions. This is a publicly traded business entity, no Form 1295 is needed.
