Keeping up with and aligning all the security needs, hardware and software lifecycles, resource management, and budget allocation requires unique project management skills in an IT environment. In addition to the general project management pieces such as planning, scheduling, implementing, documenting, and testing, here’s some areas to keep in mind as you manage the process for IT:
- Budget for capital expenditures such as a new server, switch, UPS, workstations, firewalls, etc., plus consider ongoing operating expenses related to service and support
- Develop a timeframe for new installations, upgrades, and general maintenance of your network.
- Include time and determine frequency for researching upgrades or new solutions to improve your environment.
