Our Core Work

INFRASTRUCTURE

The “technology stack” is what makes the City’s foundation for communication. This includes devices, connectivity, servers, and software. The stack is essential to all government operations. In the 21st century, it’s as essential as electricity and roads.

Enterprise applications

City of Boston departments demand better tools and technology. We treat City employees the same way we treat residents and focus on their needs. Instead of struggling with old technology, City workers can get residents the help they need.

DIGITAL ENGAGEMENT AND services

As technology changes, so do the needs of Boston residents. We need to offer services that run smooth, and meet expectations. New ways for communicating also offer new ways for residents to get involved with the City of Boston.

DATA AND ANALYTICS

By using data, we can focus our time and money on areas of the City of Boston where the aid is needed the most. Data and analytics can improve transparency, and keep track of our progress on projects for the City.

OPERATIONS

The Operations Team provides business support to the Department of Innovation and Technology. This support includes:

  • human resources and recruiting
  • finance and budgeting, and
  • the general operations of running a technology-focused government department.
BROADBAND, CABLE, AND DIGITAL EQUITY

Boston needs to be a place where everyone has options for affordable and fast broadband, and a chance to grow their digital skills. A more connected Boston also creates a more equal, innovative, and prosperous City.

CYBER SECURITY

We control and maintain online security within the City of Boston. We also encourage residents to make sure they’re taking precautions online. We want everyone to protect themselves.
