It's not a secret Wyoming is the least populated state in the union.

With it comes the stereotype that organizations here aren't up to speed in utilizing current technology. That's one assumption that's far from accurate, according to Flint Waters, Chief Information Officer for the State of Wyoming.

Waters said the state is currently working to incorporate all state-run agencies, to include schools, the Game and Fish, and law enforcement, under one network supported by multiple local contractors. This expansion would ultimately save state funds by streamlining inter-agency collaboration.

Waters said one priority of creating an all-encompassing state resources network would be having redundancy so that a disrupted line doesn't bring down an entire department.
