A project management has five different phases to it, which basically comprises the whole ITPM lifecycle. The way the lifecycle is managed has a huge impact on the whole IT project management.

A popular and widely used ITPM method is the Waterfall methodology. This is a linear process where an overview of the project is first made. Then the project is divided into phases, following one after the other, and is executed in the same way.

An iterative method is another variety of lifecycle method which doesn’t necessarily follow a strict order. Repeating the phases is a common procedure in this method as the ultimate objective is to achieve a specific goal at the end of the iteration.

How it works

The Process

Initiation

The first step is to identify the project goal, need or problem. Then a project manager is assigned and project charter is created

Planning

The project manager and project team collaborate to draw out a step-by-step plan to reach the ultimate conclusion.

Execution

With a proper plan, the team now moves on to execution in order to generate results.

Monitoring & Controlling

The team works on the execution process while the project manager determines the time, cost, scope, quality, risk and other factors related to the project.

Closing

A project closure is carried out at the end of each phase and at the very end to ensure that the entire project has been completed and approved.

Performance Management

IT performance management supervises the IT infrastructure of an organization to comply with the organization's objectives. It includes the software tools that allow monitoring and control of the infrastructure performance. These tools help the team to gather performance metrics and analyze them while identifying the underused resources. Performance management tools are imperative to virtualize the IT environment. The tools analyze the collected data to identify the irregularities that cause failures. They identify the root of the problems and eliminate them before any problems occur.

Enterprise Performance Management (EPM)

With the growth of your business, operating it becomes more complex. Eventually, you experience a reduced ability to adapt to a rapidly changing business environment. To maintain the pace of your business and stay ahead in the race, you need to implement a system that connects your plans with proper execution and performance analysis. EPM allows for real-time data availability. It helps establish an understanding of the market trends and the actions of your competitors. This helps in responding swiftly and fulfilling the business objectives.

EPM offers benefits like a recording of data, calculation, and sharing of data. You get more comprehensive information. It is now available as cloud-based software that is easy to use, reduces additional costs, and offers accessibility & security. This allows aligning with business goals like financial and strategic goals.

Configuration Management

IT configuration management allows management, organization, & control of the changes in the documents of the project. It helps in minimizing mistakes and boosting productivity. It also helps in maintain one coordination between the stakeholders. Moreover, you won't spend a huge amount on making changes to the system. The configuration audits validate that the software fulfills the baseline needs. The auditors conduct configuration auditing to ensure that it satisfies the goals of configuration management. The team of ConvoSync Solutions ensures that there is synchronization, concurrency, and version control while the software updates continually. When changes occur in the configuration object, we ensure consistency and quality through change control. Prior tracking of the changes helps to detect problems and prevent you from paying high costs. Our team tracks each release during the configuration management process through configuration status accounting. IT Configuration Management manages the configuration of the key assets of the project. Implementation of project change management and IT configuration management go hand-in-hand. It is critical to monitor and assess the changes to determine the impact on the project configuration.

Configuration Management Process

• The plan details the recording, control, tracking, and audit configuration.
• Identification of configuration requirements of a project including the design requirements, functionality requirements, and other specifications. It forms the configuration baseline of the project.
• Assessing and approving the impact on the configuration with alterations in the project scope. It accompanies the project change control process.
• Tracking the project configuration to determine the version on which the configuration is and maintain the record. The record of the versions helps to track the changes throughout the duration of the project.
• Audit tests to prove that the asset conforms to the requirements of the configuration. It helps in identifying the issues on time.
