Innovative Technologies in Orlando
Orlando is famously known as the Theme Park Capital of the World, but we’re far more than that. We’ve also earned bragging rights as a world-class business hub, thanks in large part to our entrepreneurial spirit and focus on innovative technologies.
Simply put, Orlando is where ingenuity meets experience. We’re home to more than 2,000 companies that, in partnership with leading institutions of higher education, create technologies to shape every aspect of the economy, including powerhouses such as Oracle, Electronic Arts (EA) Tiburon and Golf Channel.
Paired with superior quality of life, passionate creative culture, and high-value, low-cost operations, our dynamic technology industry propels an innovative economy. It all adds up to the southeastern U.S.’s largest tech meetup group, supported by creative workspaces, incubators, accelerators, events and strong backing from civic organizations — a prime example of which can be seen in downtown Orlando’s Creative Village.
Orlando’s innovative technologies account for 2,300 companies, 30,500 employees, 4,200 annual graduates and $2.3 billion in annual payroll, with a focus on key areas such as consumer technology, data management and analytics, digital media, e-commerce, film and post-production technology, game and mobile-app development, software development, and telecommunications. Local leaders include:
- AT&T Mobility
- Bright House Networks
- DiSTI Corporation
- EA Tiburon
- GameSim Technologies Inc.
- Golf Channel
- IDEAS for Us
- Oracle Corporation
- Pentaho, a Hitachi Systems Company
- PowerDMS Inc.
- Purple, Rock, Scissors
- SunGard Public Sector
- XOS Digital
