In complex scenarios we take over the project management for the entire project or the sub-project management for specific project phases

Definition

In a first step, we support you in the needs analysis as well as the estimation of costs, required resources and the time involved. Project risks are identified and possible approaches for implementation are assessed. Based on the results, the management can make a well-founded decision regarding the implementation of the project.

Planning

Once the decision for the project has been made, it is important to develop a detailed project plan in cooperation with your specialist departments and the stakeholders. Particular attention is paid to the detection of dependencies in the infrastructure and the associated risks during migrations or major hardware changes. Early communication with the business units regarding possible service degradation and the planning of appropriate resources is crucial for reliable planning and successful implementation.

  • Assessment of the existing IT infrastructure
  • Idendification of existing dependencies
  • Business Impact Analysis
  • Risk assessment
  • Communication matrix
  • Resource and cost planning
  • Spare part planning
  • Creation of test scenarios and runbooks
  • Request for proposal
  • Work and process planning
  • Date and milestone planning

Execution

Since physical changes or migrations are often related to a key date, special attention is paid to quality management during preparation. For example, error-avoiding work routines are established in preparation, new installations are verified, various scenarios are tested and procedures are practiced. 

  • Team coordination and operation control
  • Performance and cost controlling
  • Scheduling
  • Problem and change management
  • Establishment of error-preventing work routines
  • Verification of new installations
  • Disaster recovery testing
  • Business continuity planning
  • Reporting to stakeholder and management

Closure

At the end of the project, the new environment will be released for regular operation. All associated documentation is up-to-date at this time and possible lessons learned can be adopted. Preparations for a data center migration often result in improvements for existing standard routines, business continuity or disaster recovery plans.
