The City of Pittsburgh IT infrastructure had many constraints due to the capacity and age of the existing hardware. CoP had limited resources, not being able to scale and meet the demands of their employees and technical requirements. The IT staff did not have cloud experience to quickly deploy and migrate.
In order to remove these restraints, CoP needed to migrate their workloads to the cloud environment to expand their on-demand storage capacity, take advantage of dynamic compute capacity, and reduce their operating costs through gained efficiencies. The IT staff needed to quickly be onboarded to cloud services and understand Google Cloud Platform from the ground up.
