Yana Weber, Team Lead VIG IT DS
After various software development projects in international consulting companies, I started at VIG in early 2010 as a system architect in one of our IT departments. My next step was to lead the system architecture team, and after two years I was also appointed deputy head of department. For a short time now, I have been allowed to lead the Architecture and Innovation team. Together with my team, I support the development of the Enterprise Architecture Management domain and the transformation of the IT landscape within Vienna Insurance Group.
