The VANIX Board launched a strategic plan at the 2019 annual meeting which was developed in order to articulate our direction and major goals for next few years. The strategic plan is not only important for focusing our attention as an organization on what we need to do to succeed, but also to help us avoid unproductive distractions.
The process the Board followed to arrive at the plan was facilitated by an expert in the field and included an extensive environmental scan, board surveys, and interviews with key stakeholders, including a sample of our participants and members, other network operators and potential peers, as well as representatives of other relevant national and international IXs and related organizations. All of this information was taken into account when the Board spent a day engaged in a workshop to articulate the strategic plan.
The process outlined culminated in revised Mission and Vision Statements and the adoption of key priorities for 2019 through 2021, with each priority supported by a number of objectives.
Interconnecting networks to reduce costs and improve performance for the benefit of our community
A region that is an essential destination in the global internet ecosystem
- Increase the value of the IX to participants
- Enhance VANIX’s profile
- Grow organizational capacity
The Board will periodically provide updates on our progress in pursuing the objectives that support the plan. Please feel free to contact VANIX at firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments or questions you may have.
Thanks to you for your continuing participation in, and support of, VANIX.
