City launches IT modernization initiative and leadership changes
CHICAGO — Today, Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot and the Department of Assets, Information, and Services (AIS) announced several measures to modernize the City’s information technology to deliver more accessible city services for residents, businesses, and other constituents. These efforts will provide more efficient IT systems, enable transparency through broader access to data, and maintain protections for residents’ privacy and security.
"As we saw with initiatives like Chicago Connected, technology when properly wielded, has the tremendous power to uplift residents in all of our communities," said Mayor Lightfoot. "By providing equitable access to better technological resources, we can empower our residents — giving them the tools they need to access opportunities, resources, and so much more. This new technology approach will help ensure that moving forward, City government uses technological resources in a way that benefits all and not just some."
