Technology is the largest non-News division at AP. Our products are all technology driven, so this department is inherently part of producing the news and getting our products delivered to customers. Technology’s field team and the AP’s global support desk provide valuable support for AP employees. Our technicians, application developers, security engineers and a wide array of other technology specialists work in departments such as Application Development, Business Technology, Quality Assurance, IT Security and Technology Solutions.
