CSC on Wednesday said that 15,609 City of Los Angeles employees have been transitioned to Google Apps.
The project to move L.A. to Google Apps has had a few hiccups. The Google Apps migration was supposed to be complete June 30, but the Los Angeles Police Department had additional security requirements.
A revised timeline targeted a complete migration by mid-August. Google has said it will cover the costs of the delay. CSC, the systems integrator on the project, said in a statement that 36 of the city's 40 departments have now migrated to Google Apps. City employees are using Google Apps full suite---e-mail, calendar and documents and spreadsheets as well as Google Sites, messaging and video.
The next step in the project is to migrate L.A.'s public safety employees---notably the LAPD---to Google Apps. CSC and Google said they will finalize that migration in the fall. The Los Angeles migration is a high-profile win for Google Apps, which is increasingly duking it out with Microsoft on these big accounts.
