New York Municipal Shared Services Cloud

Connecting cities to fuel growth and prosperity via the cloud

Inefficacy and government waste are enormous problems that affect all 1,600 local governments in New York State. IBM Research and SCA are partnering to create a shared service cloud for the municipalities of New York. This cloud model is predicted to eliminate 25% of government’s IT budget by streamlining applications and connecting siloed municipalities. Watch the full story.

New York Municipalities

Through the cloud, New York municipalities plan to attract new development and growth across the state while cutting costs, saving time and reducing waste. And the IBM mainframe is the only platform New York trusts to host that cloud. In addition to its time-tested scalability, reliability and security, it offers the lowest total cost of ownership — supporting the state as it strives for reduced spending and a smarter, future-ready IT infrastructure.

Change starts by asking the difficult questions and finding innovative solutions. Cloud isn't just for IT anymore; it's for the business.
