eServices & Innovation Technology
The eServices & Innovation Technology Division within BCIT consists of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Web, and Technology Training and Support groups. Each group contributes to BCITs and eServices & Innovation Technologys goal of ensuring that the constituents of Bexar County are able to find a variety of services online that are easily accessible and usable.
GIS integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. The GIS group develops tools for users to explore the Bexar County resources.
The Web group designs and develops websites and applications for internal and external consumption, working within government regulations to ensure that all users are able to access information online.
Technology Training provides stand-up training, online training, and user manuals for County enterprise applications such as JJIS, Kovis/File 360, USLG/RACF, and more. Their goal is to assist County employees with achieving technical proficiency in order for them to do their jobs quickly and efficiently.
The Innovations group was formed to focus on updating existing processes with new solutions by using emerging technologies to address needs.
