Information Technology Infrastructure
The infrastructure side of BOT handles the environments where our applications live and the networks on which our data travels. It covers the computers, phones and standard office software used by Cook County employees. Having a robust and up-to-date technology infrastructure to support Cook County’s workforce and residents is a cornerstone of Cook County’s IT Strategy.
The Bureau of Technology is modernizing its County Core Data Center through hyperconverged technologies. The new infrastructure allows for consolidation of our computing resources. We have further opened the infrastructure to all the other Cook County agencies to offer private cloud services within our data center, increasing the efficiency of our operations and further reducing the County’s carbon footprint.
