Networks are about more than just IT. They are about connecting people who make things possible. Close teamwork is key to understanding how IT can help integrate processes into systems. We put this insight into practice, and it's part of our success. 



We coordinate the planning and implementation of software rollouts across the defined releases of a pan European IT ecosystem. Our Team monitors planned changes to IT systems and ensure that all aspects of a release are considered altogether (functional and non-functional). The main objective is to enable with software releases and at the same time protect the quality and stability of the end-to-end integrated test and production environments of the IT ecosystem, by using formal procedures and control mechanisms.
