Karlskrona Municipality chooses Cybercom and Google Apps
Karlskrona Municipality is moving towards more modern digital IT in its schools by using the Google Apps For Education cloud service. Cybercom in Karlskrona has won a contract to assist Karlskrona Municipality with the introduction of Google Apps for its municipal primary schools, secondary schools and adult education.
"The introduction of cloud computing is not just about saving money, but also about achieving a more efficient and modern way of working. Karlskrona Municipality is now taking this step together with Cybercom. I believe this is a sign that the time is right for more organisations to take the same path," says Johan Persbeck, Account Manager, Cybercom.
A contract has been signed for two years. Cybercom, which has a Google Apps centre of excellence in Karlskrona, will be responsible for the delivery.
"We are very pleased to be awarded this contract by Karlskrona Municipality. It further consolidates our strong position in the public sector and in additional regions of Sweden," says Niklas Flyborg, President and CEO, Cybercom.
Google Apps is a suite of software for business and government with everything managed via a web browser and with all data stored in Google's secure cloud data centres. Google Apps includes services for email, storage, video conferencing, word processing, presentation, spreadsheets and survey tools. The capability of collaboration through Google Apps brings a powerful teaching tool to the world of education. For example, it allows several students to work simultaneously on the same documents for assignments, and there are also opportunities for digital homework testing and participation in remote education.
