Report to Electronic Data Processing Steering Committee on the Feasibility of Data Processing Center Consolidation.
Peat, Marwick, Mitchell and Co., Sacramento, CA.
A feasibility study was conducted on the consolidation of the data processing centers for three school districts, a community college district, and a county office of education in response to legislation passed by the California State Senate in 1973. The consultants reviewed existing operations of each district, determined data processing needs, and stipulated goals for each data processing center. Long-range data processing needs were considered in the context of existing capabilities, and six alternative consolidation plans were developed. The consultants concluded that it would not be feasible, advantageous, or result in immediate cost saving to use the existing computer hardware as a basis for a consolidated data processing center. However, they did recommend consolidation as both economically and technically feasible within five years. (DGC)
