Managing IT During High-Growth
Databricks is a software platform that helps its customers unify their analytics across business, data science, and engineering teams. Founded in 2013, the company has experienced rapid growth in the last two years. Databricks more than tripled in size from 400 to 1,300 in 2019. With 50-80 new people joining the company each month, IT was busy managing the new scale and technology to support this growth. All with a workforce that was 30% remote before COVID.
Mike Hamilton, the Head of IT, joined during what he referred to as the “wild west phase” of start-ups. A phase with high-growth, no formal PO process, and departments frequently buying new apps and add- on licenses. As the company matured, IT needed more visibility into the SaaS portfolio and to create structure while remaining nimble. Mike saw the opportunity to think more strategically about the SaaS portfolio and partner with business groups.
