  MAX IV Laboratory, inaugurated in June 2016, has for the last 8 months accepted synchrotron users on three beamlines, NanoMAX, BioMAX and Hippie, while simultaneously pushing towards bringing more beamlines into the commissioning and user phases. As evidence of this, the last call issued addressed 10 beamlines. As of summer 2019, MAX IV has reached a point where 11 beamlines simultaneously have shutters open and are thus receiving light under stable operation. With 16 beamlines funded, the number of beamlines will grow over the coming years. The Controls and IT group has performed numerous beamline system installations such as a sample changer at BioMAX, Dectris detector at Nanomax, and End Station at Hippie. It has additionally developed processes, such as automated IT infrastructure with a view to accepting users. We foresee a focus on end stations and detectors, as well as data storage, data handling and scientific software. As an example, a project entitled "DataStaMP" has been recently funded aiming to increase the data and metadata storage and management system in order to accommodate the ever increasing demand for storage and access.
