Located in New Mexico against the Sandia Mountains, Albuquerque blends ancient Pueblo history with modern culture. Famous for its International Balloon Fiesta and rich Pueblo-Spanish architecture, the city is also celebrated for its unique culinary delights, especially the New Mexico green chile. A dynamic mix of tradition and innovation, Albuquerque beckons exploration.


The Challenge


The City of Albuquerque encountered pressing IT challenges, emphasizing the need for a swift and strategic intervention:

  • High Staff Turnover: The frequent change in personnel hampered continuity and efficiency.
