Philippe Lazzaroni (Direct Impact Solutions)

Session Description

The City of Montreal was seeking a way to better manage its projects and measure the impact of its economic development activities. In the past, the department relied on a number of spreadsheets and informal processes, with mixed results. FileMaker was introduced to build a modern custom app. To avoid the challenges of maintaining their own server, a FileMaker server was configured and outsourced. A centralized FileMaker custom app was built and deployed to all staff members, with astonishing results.
