TAP continues to grow and, in this case, also within doors, with the integration of Megasis into the Company. The transition was held on 1st of April at the Auditorium of Hangar 6, in a clarification session conducted by Raffael Quintas, TAP Chief Financial Officer (CFO), with the collaboration of Eduardo Rodrigues, responsible for TAP IT, and the presence of more than 100 invited employees.
Thus, another step proposed by the current Administration of TAP was achieved. According to Raffael Quintas, "it made perfect sense for the IT team to be integrated into the company and become a strategic business, transformation and growth partner for TAP." This merger eliminates possible communication and alignment gaps, enhancing the feeling and the culture of belonging.
The present Employees were able to know the IT strategy and priorities for 2019, highlighting the consolidation of IT management in the new unit resulting from the merger of TAP with Megasis, the promotion of the internalization of the critical resources needed to implement the respective model, and the streamlining of processes, organizational structures and the relationship of the organization to its human resources.
In his speech, Eduardo Rodrigues corroborated those priorities, emphasizing the optimization of resource management for the most important areas of the company. "It is essential to get closer to the business, perceive it and determine the factors that affect it in a positive and negative way," said TAP IT manager.
Although the integration process was initiated a few months ago, the Company's Executive Committee made it a point to hold this meeting with the Megasis Employees, especially "to convey a message of confidence and show that TAP is stronger than before and to go the right way",said Raffael Quintas, adding that soon the organizational structure of this new direction of TAP will be announced. The physical integration of IT in TAP buildings (25 or 27) is also foreseen, since, according to the Company's CFO, "nobody can work in isolation. One of TAP's main challenges for this year is communication."
