State and Local Government Solutions

Transforming state and local governments with modernized IT

From public safety to parks, from courthouses to classrooms, state and local governments are responsible for a myriad of IT-intensive tasks: managing human resources, planning and modeling infrastructure, monitoring utilities and traffic, and maintaining public records, just to name a few.

But state and local governments are particularly sensitive to challenging economic times — when your area’s economy is struggling, the impact on tax collection can be exponential, often compounded by additional cuts in federal funding. So how do you do more with less — continuing to provide the mission-critical services your citizens expect, even as your budget is shrinking?

Implementing the right technology solutions can help you improve service delivery while operating within increasing cost constraints. IT departments in the public arena often work with outdated, inefficient systems — sometimes even decades-old. Modernizing your legacy and proprietary systems with scalable, standardized Dell solutions can yield significant return on investment (ROI) and a much lower total cost of ownership (TCO) in a number of ways:
  • Lower operating costs
  • Reduced IT workloads, freeing staff for other projects
  • Faster data backup and recovery times
  • Fewer service interruptions
  • Improved infrastructure availability for 24/7 departments
  • Expanded public access
  • More agile workforce
  • Simplified procurement with vendor single-sourcing
We’ve got solutions for state and local government in these key areas:
  • Security
  • Application modernization
  • Workforce mobility
  • Data center efficiency
  • Cloud computing
  • Disaster recovery and business continuity
  • Emergency management solutions
For more than two decades, we’ve tackled just about every IT issue governments face. Contact a Dell state and local government expert to learn how our solutions can help convert your IT operations from a cost center to an agenda-enabler.
