This is an excerpt of an email I sent to our employees. I am proud to be a part of this organization change and milestone with Lanvera’s IT department.
We Are All ITO
Historically, “IT Operations” was one department, one team, all functions. This model hasn’t made sense and wasn’t positioning this department to scale to the next level. Since May 2017, we’ve seen more than a few organizational changes, restructuring functions, and changing of personnel roles. Now the dust has settled, it’s a good time to mention our brand and mission for this year.
My team’s theme for 2018 is NIHIL SINE MAGNO LABORE. Latin translation is “Nothing Without Great Effort”. Steve talks a lot about our IT transformation, having achieved much, but have more ground to go. The phoenix seen here is representative of our transformational journey. I would like to extend this theme to all IT teams as we pull together.
To this aim, all teams fall under the department “ITO” and break out into three separate teams: Infrastructure, DevOps, and QA. Moving forward, teams will be identified as “ITO – Infrastructure”, “ITO – DevOps”, and “ITO – Quality Assurance”, respectively. The goal is unification of technology services and support.
Bringing us together.
