There are big things coming out of Alabama. Get the latest scoop.

Wired for Expansion

The information technology industry is expanding across the country, and Alabama has dialed into that progress. The state’s IT companies generate almost $1 billion annually and employ tens of thousands. As other notable Alabama industries such as automotive, aerospace and life sciences continue to develop, so will the need for cutting-edge technology. The minds trained to create those solutions are right here in Alabama.

More than merely a support system, information technology serves as a major stand-alone sector of Alabama’s economy. The Alabama IT sector employs over 15,000 Alabamians and generates greater than $1 billion in annual revenue across industries like banking and finance, government, education, consumer products, GIS and utilities.

Birmingham-based BBVA Compass has contributed to this development by commencing a $400 million computer systems upgrade, requiring some 650 people and 2 million man hours to accomplish. Others, like business incubator Innovation Depot, seek to bolster this division’s economic strength by nurturing emerging biotechnology, information technology and service startups.
