Welcome to Shadownet Computing
Managing an IT project is like juggling 5 balls at same time: It's neither easy nor pretty. Information technology is especially slippery because it's always moving, changing, adapting and challenging.
Shadownet Computing principles of IT project management
IT Projects are short-term efforts to create a unique product, service or environment, such as removing old servers, developing a custom site, creating new desktop images or merging databases. All Managed IT projects are constrained by certain factors:
For a project to be successful, these three constraints must be in balance. There must be If any constraint is out of balance, the project is heading for disaster. We manage IT and have briefing with specialist IT consulting prior to the project.
Our managed IT projects, move through phases in the project management development:
- IT Consulting
- Monitoring and controlling
- Closing a successful project
Each of these phases contains processes that move the project from idea to implementation.
Shadownet Computing IT Project planning ensures that all challenges are met, such as:
- Budget constraints
- Enough qualified Engineers to devoted to the project
All technology challenges are also met, such as:
- Hardware compatibilities
- Operating system
- Network or database afflictions
- Security risks
- Interoperability issues
- Changes manufacturers make to their hardware and software configurations
Shadownet Computing pride ourselves to deliver with excellence and high standard Managed IT projects with sufficient planning considering the resources it needs to devote to a project, the skills required and the people who need to be involved, and realistically consider the time it will take to create, test and implement the project deliverables.
Shadownet Computing understands that companies today rely on IT Consulting for a competitive advantage, they speed through development efforts and systems implementations in order to be first to market with new, IT-based products, services and capabilities. Organizations often feel that, to remain competitive, they must cut costs and maintain business operations, but that adds to the pressure on a big, expensive project such as an ERP (Enterprise resource planning) implementation or a platform upgrade hence Shadownet Computing makes sure a project is adequately planned, risk assessments and testing are done from the start.
Finally, Shadownet Computing will ensure each Managed IT project with a large scope will be executed by breaking it down into a series of smaller, more manageable projects. For example, a project to convert all of an organization's historical records, forms and transactions from paper to an online digital database can be incredibly complex and time consuming. A series of smaller projects allows for more manageable actions, such as first converting the existing records to digital, and then a second project to use the digital database internally, and then a third project to bring the database to the Web. These smaller projects can be completed sequentially and with more flexibility than a large, complicated and immense project.
