Always good to see tech teams getting some well deserved recognition.
We often hear of the cool innovations and technologies put in place by tech teams to move the business forward but a huge part of the business is done in the background to make sure everything is running smoothly. Without a solid foundation of smooth running infrastructure, it wouldn't allow us to do the "fun stuff" and be value generators.
From the article:
“It’s like the long snapper,” Spielman said. “As long as everything is running smoothly, you don’t hear about them, until something comes up and everybody wants to jump on them. Well, our IT people, you don’t hear anything about them because of how capable they are.”
