ITS works with individual departments and the County as a whole to develop, deliver and support technology solutions.
Creation of new solutions can deliver great value, but many of them are also large investments. These solutions need to be managed professionally and with great care to ensure they are provided in a timely manner and meet the planned objectives.
To accomplish this, the department provides:
- Business data solutions
- Business solutions development
- Business systems support
Enterprise Geographic Information System
Most service delivery in the County involves the land base. As a result, the County has invested in a corporate Geographic Information System (GIS). ITS provides:
- GIS corporate support
- GIS system support
- GIS analytics and reporting
Technology Planning and Strategy
It is critical to ensure that investments in technology focus on delivering the most value to the County and its citizens and businesses as possible. To accomplish this, ITS is developing and maturing its ability to develop strategies and enhance technology planning.
- Technology planning
Technology Infrastructure and Customer Support
The County has a sizeable investment in technology, and most County employees use this technology every day. Outages and failures are expensive in their overall impact, and can slow down or halt service delivery to the public.
To minimize these impacts, ITS provides:
- User support services
- Computer infrastructure support
- Service quality management
- Technology purchasing
- IT security
- Technology training
