TMK discusses IT function transformation with SinTZ and STZ teams
Leaders of TMK’s IT function have discussed with relevant teams the integration of IT units at Sinarsky and Seversky Pipe Plants (SinTZ and STZ) into a single structure.
To boost the performance of its IT function, develop common standards for digital services and create a favorable environment for employee development, TMK is transitioning to a centralized IT management model. IT teams will be included in a single organization with centralized operations management and role assignment, and engage with internal customers through a unified approach and using standard service-level agreements.
All employees of IT units will work under the new TMK++ brand. Through this merger, the Company will benefit from more effective planning of training and certification programs, with common incentives and social guarantees used within the IT team. In addition, employees will benefit from wider opportunities to develop their career and get involved in projects.
During these meetings, IT leaders presented plans for reengineering the IT organizational structure to the relevant SinTZ and STZ teams. The meetings also discussed the main goals and stages of the transformation project, adapting to new conditions, collaborating within the combined team, and assigning tasks, as well as the approaches to standardizing key working processes and other matters.
Dmitry Yakob, TMK’s IT Director, said: “The combined IT function will ensure the continuity of the Company’s business processes and the ongoing digital transformation of our operations. To handle all incoming tasks promptly and with the same high level of quality while staying as available and transparent for our internal customers as possible, we are reengineering the organizational structure of IT units. This is particularly relevant given the expansion of the Company’s organizational structure and the integration of new practices and products. We are now merging teams under the new TMK++ brand, centralizing management and transitioning to a service-based model of work in line with best practices. Every member of our IT teams will be involved in this process, so it is important for us to meet with our colleagues on the ground, answer their questions and discuss next steps to maximize synergies.”
