Agencies Advance Cybersecurity, Recruitment and Cost Savings with SaaS

  Accela and Microsoft define key benefits of SaaS and how it can revitalize and safeguard citizen services Technology should solve government problems, not create them.   That was the overarching message of Accela’s Chief Product Officer Troy Coggiola and Microsoft’s Executive Director for State and Local Government Solutions Kim Nelson as they spoke about the potential to cut costs, improve cybersecurity and attract talent through  Software-as-a-Service  (SaaS) solutions.    The two spoke at Accela’s June 13 webinar,  Why SaaS has Become the Standard for Government Agencies , that spotlighted some of the underlying forces driving the public sector to the cloud and how cities and local agencies can use SaaS solutions to rethink IT management and enable modern, high performance applications for residents.   “Our [government customers] repeatedly reiterate their goal to serve their citizens and improve their communities, helping their communities thrive,” Coggiola said. “The one thing that they do not typically talk about is the desire to manage a server farm, or data center, or do upgrades, or develop security practices, or all the other bits and pieces that come along with keeping software up and running in a...

For Accela, this means helping these agencies realize the opportunity to reduce costs, improve service levels and engage with citizens. And we’re not alone.
