A Focus On Technology

Technology has changed how we connect with one another, gather information, and conduct business. Whether it's the education technology used in our classrooms, the GIS technology used to connect parents with childcare, or the technology used to analyze economic trends, technology touches each of our lives. Each day our staff uses technology to connect clients and collaborators with solutions that directly benefit our state and its citizens.
