Migration to the cloud, transformation of a computer park, relocation, adoption of new telephone solutions, adaptation of solutions to technological changes,… IT projects are becoming increasingly complex due to the diversity of players involved and the direct impact of these projects on the client’s environment. The objective of IT project management is to ensure that this impact is minimized as much as possible.
IT project management are increasingly requested by companies of all sizes and are therefore becoming an effective organizational method.
The different stages of IT project management
– The first step is the definition of objectives, where the client’s needs are clearly identified. It is also at this stage that a budget and a deadline are set.
– This is followed by the drawing up of the project specifications. It is here that the project manager will propose the appropriate technologies, both hardware and software, while respecting the client’s requirements. This project specifications will also mention all the resources to be used during the project.
– Once the offer has been validated by the client, the concrete implementation of the project. It is during this stage that the project manager will take charge of and manage relations between the various stakeholders (client, suppliers, technicians, etc.), guarantee technical compliance, respect for constraints, and validate the final deliverable (by ensuring that it meets the client’s expectations).
Throughout the project, communication will be essential. On the one hand, the service provider will maintain communication with the client for each stage of the project, in order to provide maximum support. On the other hand, he will also have to coordinate communications between the different actors involved.
– Once the project has been finalized, the service provider’s work does not stop there, as post-project support is provided. This includes, if necessary, any corrective actions, training sessions for end users, or the drafting of explanatory documentation.
It is important to be fully aware the problems can arise during the course of the project, and you must be able to manage them. The same applies to deviations (from the schedule, the budget, or the chosen technologies- which may occur as a result of the service provider’s changing understanding of the client’s needs or, on the other hand, as a result of the client’s better understanding of the technical specifications.
It is therefore necessary to show great flexibility and responsiveness in order to be able to adapt: by modifying an element in the initial project, or by completely creating a new project in parallel for the same client.
