The Office of the CIO provides custom software development and support for a wide range of computing platforms, including mainframe programs, web applications, and mobile technologies.
The Applications Development Team has extensive expertise in many programming languages, including Java, .Net, COBOL, and CICS. The Applications Development Team makes use of several database management systems, including DB2 and Microsoft SQL.
The application development life cycle typically includes planning, designing, coding, testing, documentation, deployment, on-going maintenance, and problem resolution. Depending on the situation and requirements, the Application Development Team can support agile software development methods that emphasize early delivery with continuous improvement while incorporating an expanded list of business needs.
In addition to programming fully customized solutions, the Applications Development also uses technologies that offer extensive functionality by configuration of off-the-shelf software. This includes Microsoft’s SharePoint tools for collaboration, analytics reporting and dashboard presentations using Oracle’s Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE), and the OnBase / Enterprise Content Management workflow and document management software that is the basis for the state’s Enterprise Content Management System.
