4  2011 – population = 204,000  ~ 1300 FTE’s  7 AS400’s and 75 Windows Servers  Centralized, managed Internet  World Class Web Site, fully integrated with live data  Centrally managed system  60 Terabytes of data (60,000 gigs)  Business processes mostly electronic, but much work still exists to reduce redundant efforts, and streamline process efficiencies Background (continued)

5  7 Total AS400 (iSeries) Servers – “Little Main Frames”  3 Active, 3 Passive (fail over), 1 Development  Costs = ~ $500,000 annually to maintain  Applications used being phased out by vendor  Support is hard to come by, and expensive  Technology has changed in the past 12 years AS400 Infrastructure

6  125 Windows Servers by 2014  One Physical Windows Server = 30 Windows Servers  Entire infrastructure can be managed by 2 people  Support and skill set are abundant, and current staff maintains these skills.  Highly redundant, reliable, and flexible.  Costs = ½ of Current AS400 or $250,000 per year Virtualization / Windows

7  Definition: ERP – Enterprise Resource Planning  Finance, Payroll, HR, Building/Development/Code Enforcement life cycle, Citizen Services  5 of 71 Departments Studied  Finance, Purchasing, HR, Building Permits & Licensing, Tax Assessor  Over $500,000 per year in wasted effort due to redundant, or inefficient business processes Efficiency Study

8  Data Center Upgrades – Already in progress  3 Sites  Servers: move from AS400 platform to Virtualized Windows platform (already delivered)  Storage (Hard Drive Space): This is where the data lives. Planed for 5 year life cycle.  Network Upgrades (to support increased network bandwidth demand  Phone System (5 years + old now) Upgrades  Disaster Recovery, data continuity, integrity  “E-Discovery”: which is very helpful for our Legal Department performing instant searches of all data throughout the County when needed Hardware

9

10  ERP: Enterprise Resource Planning  Finance, Auditing, Grants Management  Purchasing, Inventory, Asset Management  Human Resources  Permits and Licensing (Building and Business Licensing)  Planning and Development  Work Flow Management – Citizen and department work requests  Citizen Access – Transparency in government, requests, tracking requests, etc. Software (Administration) 18 months from time awarded

11  Police RMS (Records Management System)  Replace AS400 software, with modern, windows based software  Increased capabilities, including integration with 911, mobile applications such as e-citations, accident reporting, incident reporting, GPS, and many more.  911 CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch)  Replace AS400 software, with windows based CAD solution  Include mobile CAD for SO, PD, Fire, Cities (cities pay for their software)  Include GIS / GPS (mapping and call routing) capabilities  Increased reporting capabilities Software (Public Safety) 18 months from time awarded

12  Changing Business Culture  Communication is key: Why we’re here today!  Buy-In and Cooperation from ALL Stakeholders Essential  Board of Commissioners and Constitutionals  County Management, Division Directors, Department Heads  All users (all employees, and ultimately citizens)  Feedback and modifications of the Plan as needed  Adoption of the Plan (set schedule) by the BOC  All Departments will be required to participate in business process reviews, identifying at least 2 decision makers with authority to make decisions, and communicate with their department.  Implementation of the Plan, including installation, data migration, integration, delivery, training, and ultimately Adoption by All Departments, and end users. Change is Painful

13  October 2011: Communicate the need, proposed solution, and schedule to deliver  October-November 2011: RFPs for Storage and Software (Servers already done)  October-January 2012:  Installation of Hardware  Acceptance of recommendations of software selection by BOC  Begin Business Process Review and Discussions with each Department  January-July 2012:  Installation of Software (ERP, PD, 911)  Training of new software begins, and continues  Software integration with 3 rd party software components  July - January 2013:  Implementation  Training - Culture Change  Dual Systems running and in production  July 2013 – January 2014:  Acceptance of new system by departments (Sign Off)  De-commission AS400’s Estimated Schedule

14  Overall Expenses for entire project = $3.5 million  5 Years + Life for Hardware  10 Years Life for Software  $1.3 million = Infrastructure improvements for servers, storage, network phone system  $2 million = Software, including implementation, training, data migration, etc.  Maintenance = $200 K / year for first 5 years  Cost per employee = ~ $512 per year Expenses

15  Savings – AS400 Infrastructure = $500K per year  Savings – Improved Efficiency (5 departments studied = $500K per year) Estimate for all departments $2.5 Million per year)  Savings less cost – First 5 years = $15 Million (less costs = $3.5 million) =  NET GAIN = $11.5 Million Return on Investment
