Welcome to the home of the Information Technology Department and the Office of the Chief
Information Officer. We hold pride in being the leaders in technology and using both information and technology as integral pieces of our business – which can be seen in the new 2013 Strategic Technology Plan and how it is achieving the City’s goals and vision/mission.
The City of Roseville is an Innovative, Progressive, Smart and Digital City. The technology is what drives the future infrastructure of the City. Through collaborative partnership in many of our innovative projects today and investing in our team members with the right skill sets, cost effective solutions are delivered to support the Citywide operations and provide excellent services to our community.
If you are within the City network, please browse the IT-Intranet and explore all of the information and services offered to you. If you are a partner or a customer of ours in the City / Community, we are continuously committed to the superior results delivered by one of our IT-Teams (Strategic Planning, Infrastructure and Customer Services). As the world is now evolving around the information age (social, mobile, information and cloud), the team also maintains a Social Media page to share general information and innovative technology events. We believe that through these services, the City is truly unleashing the potential of its strategic business values.
I hope you will find much of this information to be useful and exciting, and can see how they are being related to our day-to-day operations. We are open to your comments and suggestions on how we can further adopt innovative technology to support this City and the Community, to improve its quality of life.

This year conference was one of the most fulfilling technology events I have attended. It covered three simultaneous tracks on management, technology and specific issue regarding GIS.......The 2013 California’s Governing Leadership Forum focused its topics on “Leadership and Disruptive Technology”. Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom was the opening speaker and he encouraged the public to realign the government business with the evolution of the internet commerce today through the use of social media, mobile, information and cloud technology......
The most recent CA-legislative updates that may have significant impacts to the City are listed below. These business technology bills published on the legislative web pages explain several key reforms on digital protection of personal information, website tracking & monitoring, internet broadband accessibility and enabling of wireless communication services. Future legislative bills will continue to challenge the State of California a lot further toward a more open, transparent and Internet inclusive society.
More than any other time of the year, December provides a common period of reflection, anticipation, and thankfulness. This special message shares a few examples of the friendship, teamwork, leadership and events that made 2012 a special year for the IT Department and the City of Roseville; and I hope you will enjoy it.
I was at the MISAC Annual Conference recently in San Diego (Municipal Information Systems Association of California) and the theme for this year is about Leading IT: A 360 Degree Perspective. The State CIO of California – Carlos Ramos had the opportunity to present the opening keynote on “How We Got Here – The Consumer Perspective of State & Local Government IT and The Importance of Understanding and Communicating with our Customers” (see attached). I would like to take this opportunity and share with you some of the best practices I heard in the information packed conference, including his presentation, the State's Strategic Technology Plan and linking it with our strategy goals.
