San Diego will increase data sharing for employees

San Diego County, Calif., will increase mobility capabilities for employees to collaborate and share data wherever they are working under a new $700 million contract with Hewlett-Packard, Nick Wakeman reports in Washington Technology.

Another goal is to improve citizen-centric services, which is part of the county’s e-government and green IT initiatives, the company said.

San Diego County has been a pioneer in IT outsourcing among state and local governments, turning over its information systems infrastructure to Computer Sciences Corp. in 1999, Wakeman writes.
