Are you actively looking at your metrics and engagement from your social media…See More

Although challenging, the more cities can engage the broader public, the better. Planetizen is a public-interest information exchange for the urban planning, design, and…See More

I wonder about two factors:
     1. Capacity
     2. Security

Sometime ago, our agency said its severs were overburdened, so some of our data was then moved to SharePoint servers. Life was good. Now our SharePoint servers are oversubscribed, so once again we have to find another place to stash our stuff. Sounds like a never-ending story to me.
