LA County moves 100,000 employees, 30 departments, to Office 365

Los Angeles County, the largest in the nation, is moving more than 100,000 employees in more than 30 departments to Office 365.

“Office 365 will allow our mobile workforce, like our social workers, district attorneys, assessors, field investigators, animal control and coroners, to be more mobile,” said Peter Loo, the county’s chief deputy chief information officer.

The fire department is also included in the move.

Rich Sanchez, the county’s CIO, says that in 2013 alone, the L.A. County Fire Department responded to 329,119 incidents, and yet is the “one agency within the county that does not have the financial resources to spend on technology,” he said. Office 365 “will give the department access to the most up-to-date software, so firefighters can focus their energy on the huge demands of our county constituents.”
