April is Innovation and Technology Month in Illinois and the Department of Innovation and Technology (DoIT) is proud to celebrate it. Every year, the state of Illinois celebrates April as Innovation and Technology Month to recognize the importance of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in the economy.
DoIT is the state’s primary agency for managing and promoting the use of technology and data to improve government services and to drive economic growth. The department provides support to state government and helps to create innovative solutions for the state’s citizens. This year, DoIT is celebrating Innovation and Technology Month by highlighting some of the ways that technology has improved the lives of Illinoisans.
One of the most significant achievements of DoIT is the development of the Illinois Data Exchange, which is a secure data platform that enables the sharing of data between different government entities. This platform has helped to create better communication and collaboration between state agencies, allowing them to better serve their constituents.
Additionally, DoIT has helped to create a number of online services and applications, such as the Illinois Business Portal and the Illinois Citizen Connect. These applications allow users to easily access information and services, providing them with a more efficient and convenient way to interact with their government. DoIT also provides support for the development and implementation of the Illinois Cybersecurity Initiative, which is a comprehensive program aimed at protecting the state’s critical information systems from cyberattacks.
