Maxim joined the management team of Avtodom Group of Companies and AutoSpecCenter Group of Companies as IT Director in April 2022.
Nowadays, large automotive holdings as well as companies from various segments, that possess a modern efficient IT infrastructure, have a serious competitive advantage on the market. The main trends of the strategy of Avtodom Group of Companies and AutoSpecCenter Group of Companies have not changed, despite the ambiguous situation in the country. Companies are focused on the development of new lines of business and e-commerce, and in general are actively engaged in digitalization. All this entails a continuous complication of the IT landscape and requires modern approaches to IT management. Restructuring of a unified IT service, introduction of a service approach into the work of the IT department, transition to a unified DMS system, normalization and control of reference data, etc. are among the tasks of developing the IT direction.
â€œFirst we need to eliminate waste and identify the main value for the end user. Then we need to minimize the actions that do not produce it. We will create knowledge not in the form of disparate documents, but with the help of effective communications between team members and a single center of up-to-date data. Of course, we will have to optimize the whole. At the same time, we will take into account the overall improvement of activities, and not just local optimization, – Maxim Krivoshey, IT Director of Avtodom Group of Companies and AutoSpecCenter Group of Companies, shared his ambitious plans.
