What is IT Project Management?

From email to server rooms, technology is a core component of most modern businesses.

The technology goals of organisations have to be appropriately managed for the company to develop and be successful. IT project management is the planning and IT project implementation of these technology goals. These projects can range from simple website updates to server upgrades and cloud migration.

As IT is essential to businesses, upgrades to infrastructure need to be completed without interfering with operations. Outsourcing IT Support and your IT project management is a way to ensure that projects are completed with minimal downtime and maximum efficiency.

IT Project Implementation

Every business is unique, so our IT project management is tailored for you. Our initial consultation will identify your technology and business goals. Following this, an on-site review of your current infrastructure gives our project management team information to begin planning your project.

Our specialist team of System Architects have in-depth knowledge of current and emerging technologies. Our project managers work with these experts to develop a complete plan and project schedule. This is shared with your team, and any changes are then made to ensure minimal disruption to your business.

We provide regular updates throughout the project timeline. After executing the plan, we run tests to calculate key performance indicators and monitor stability. Once the project is completed, we perform a full handover to your business. We provide any necessary training to ensure your new service integrates as smoothly as possible into your operation.

IT Project management services FAQs

Does my business need an external IT project manager?

IT project planning and IT project implementation is a complex process that can be difficult for an in-house team to manage. Good technical skills and project management knowledge may not be enough to deal with unforeseen circumstances, such as team members becoming ill or system blackouts.

An external IT project management service can support internal teams to prevent failures in service delivery and ensure the project runs smoothly. External vendors have resources at their disposal that allow for rapid application development and system implementation. Whilst your systems or hardware are being upgraded, these vendors will have alternatives to keep your business operating, minimising downtime and potential loss of earnings.

What should my business look for in an external project management service?

An IT project management service should provide a full lifecycle approach. This ensures that the solution is always up-to-date, even after the initial rollout phase. When selecting an external partner, the vendor’s business ethics and financial stability should be considered. Any companies your business works with should be sensitive to your business needs and communicate efficiently. A reputable vendor’s client testimonials should be reviewed before an initial meeting to ensure they are confident in their services.

What is an example of an IT project?

Any project that involves IT infrastructure or software. This can include website, software and application development, hardware installation, database management and cloud migration.

What are the 5 phases of IT Projects?

  1. Project initiation: The project objective is identified. A feasibility study is conducted to evaluate the project’s goals and timeline against the cost. Should this be successful, a project plan is made.
  2. Project Planning: The project tasks are identified, and resource allocation occurs. The critical path method highlights crucial tasks for project completion. As the IT industry is subject to rapid changes in technology, an agile project management method is needed. This allows for changes in the plan should new technology be developed or priorities change.
  3. Project Execution: The project plan is executed, and the IT project manager guides the team to deliver the service for the customer.
  4. Project Monitoring and Control: This is an ongoing process throughout the project lifecycle. The IT project manager conducts risk management and ensures the project stays within budget and is meeting deadlines. Key performance indicators are monitored to ensure the hardware or software integrates into the existing systems.
  5. Project Closure: Successful project delivery is achieved once the final deliverable has been completed and approved. Ownership is transferred from the project team to the clients.
