WHAT’S HAPPENING

Technology is the cornerstone of success in the modern workplace, and the City of Atlanta has some of the best tech anywhere. It’s the reason core functions of government are open for business – despite City Hall being closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The team from Atlanta Information Management (AIM) has worked around the clock in a time of great personal risk to ensure that Atlanta residents can still access the local resources they need.

Making the City’s digital infrastructure a hard-target in the wake of the 2018 ransomware attack was a priority for Mayor Bottoms, who brought in Chief Information Officer Gary Brantley to get the job done.

Brantley and his staff are the ones who are now making it possible for City employees to seamlessly telework from home and for City leaders to hold virtual meetings with the public to make sure the business of government continues uninterrupted.
