We completed an integration between our Elavon and US Bank IT infrastructure, creating one unified system. We also made enhancements to our already-strong technology governance in Europe and opened our European Innovation Centre.

We're operating in an Agile and DevOps-focused environment, where team empowerment and self-organisation are keys to success. Today's IT leaders need to be flexible and embrace the transformation as we continue moving to a more interactive and collaborative mindset. Their roles needs to be that of a coach who can help their teams and their organisation adopt the transformation.
