Department of Information Technology

The people who bring their skill and passion for technology and customer service to the Information Technology team are thinking about the future and working today on ideas like cloud-based storage and service, mobile app development, and many other new concepts. We work each day to deliver technology leadership and innovation to the twenty-seven County departments and offices.

The county has won four national Digital Counties awards for technical innovation and business leadership over the last ten years. IT values its employees and invests continuously in their technical skills and career development.

Internal Business Services

IT services include copper and digital telephony; cloud applications; creation, development and support of over 400 apps and applications; a virtualized data center; physical and digital imaging; fiber, copper, microwave, mesh, and Wi-Fi networks; a fully responsive web site providing increasing online services; 2800 users with 1600+ mobile devices; and business analysis and project management. IS maintains a network and cloud presence with many local municipalities to provide shared services and connectivity. County customers include the county’s large commercial airfield, the expansive parks network, and the extensive public safety and courts network system serving 733,000 residents.  

Meeting Business Challenges

The scope and variety of current services provided to the public is steadily expanding with both population growth and new technological capabilities. The department has introduced or made major upgrades to over 65 services during the last three years. Mobile technology plays an increasing role in service delivery and public interaction, and is integrated into more than half of the current projects.
