Information Technology Management
The City of Milwaukee uses information systems to add value to the community by delivering high quality services at the lowest possible cost.
The Department of Administration's Information and Technology Management Division (ITMD) will lead the City in using and sharing information in ways that will provide the maximum efficiency and greatest benefit to Milwaukee city's citizens, businesses, and City government.
The Policy and Administration section provides policy planning and research, develops and monitors information standards, and coordinates citywide initiatives among City departments. The section also supports administrative operations of ITMD.
The Citywide Information Systems section develops and supports applications relating to the City's web site (e-government, Map Milwaukee), mapping and geographic display of information (Geographic Information Systems, or GIS) and operations of certain critical City and departmental systems. The section also manages the City's "corporate database", web site (Milwaukee.gov), and supports the grant-funded COMPASS project (COmmunity Mapping, Planning and Analysis for Safety Strategies).
The Infrastructure and Technology Development section supports and maintains the City's financial management information system (FMIS), citywide and departmental networks, and desktop operations for several City departments. The section also provides hardware support for the City's internet site and web-based applications; ensures the security of City networks, systems, and data; and operates centralized systems that maintain and provide data that support critical departmental activities.
