Information Technology

The Milwaukee Region has a well-deserved reputation as the “Toolbox of America.” At the start of the 20th Century, it supplied the critical parts needed for the nation’s rapidly growing manufacturing sector. Milwaukee is still the toolbox, but the tools have changed.

Information technology is the key to opportunity in the Information Age and Milwaukee Region firms are leading-edge providers of software that automates financial transactions, improves factory-floor productivity, integrates medical information and streamlines supply-chain management. There are more than 2,500 high-tech firms in the Milwaukee Region, employing more than 12,000 people. Major area financial industry providers include Fiserv (a Fortune 500 company headquartered in the region), FIS, and Thomson Reuters BETA Systems.

The Milwaukee Region has become a magnet for software engineers and development firms because of our high quality of life, affordable housing and advanced educational offerings in medical informatics, computing and software engineering.
