The Technology Infrastructure Lab is constantly analyzing new technologies to see where benefits can be realized in the State. By working across multiple organizations including K-12, community colleges, universities, nonprofits, and the State's Department of Information Technology, the team has a bird's eye view of many initiatives and can often identify opportunities for collaboration and economies of scale. The TIL is a data-driven organization that mixes staff members with backgrounds in computer engineering, business, education, public policy and analytics. Combined, these skill sets produce solutions that attack problems from various angles with a wide aperture.
