Google and the U.S. city of Los Angeles have hit a speed bump in the full implementation of Google Apps into the city's various departments, and the costs of a delay could top US$100,000--for Google.
Google had a June 30 deadline to get all of Los Angeles' city employees up and running on Google Apps, but that didn't happen, according to a MarketWatch report.
The Los Angeles City Council was reportedly told that the costs of keeping employees on that old Novell system while the kinks are worked out could exceed US$400,000, but Google says the costs will be closer to about US$135,000 and that it will cover them. One of the key issues behind the delay: security concerns by the city's police department.
