The City of Las Vegas attracts nearly $60 billion in tourist dollars each year. To keep those dollars rolling in, city leaders needed to ensure infrastructure functioned well. In order to appeal to businesses and residents, they had to prove they were innovative, something they could no longer do while running on legacy environments.
Through the years budget cuts and the need for complex IT systems had created an environment where skilled IT staff was spending 90% of their time on maintenance rather than on tasks and functions furthering the city’s mission. Michael Sherwood’s team looked at multiple options from many vendors and by partnering with Arisant and Oracle decided that the Oracle Cloud at Customer was the right solution.
“Freeing ourselves from legacy infrastructure is allowing us to spend more time on things that make a difference for the community and future of our city.”
