IT deployments can be complex. Given the critical nature of most business technology it is essential that any project is managed professionally, from start to finish, to ensure minimum disruption to day-to-day operations.

Project management is more than simply overseeing an installation. Our project managers act as the lynchpin for technology upgrades and new deployments. The central point of contact for clients, the project manager is involved in every aspect of the project, from initial systems design and configuration to installation, testing, user training and acceptance.

Quality Assurance

ONI project managers are ultimately responsible for ensuring we deliver on our promises. They work closely with our team of consultants and systems designers throughout the stages of project delivery and are responsible for overall risk identification, assessment and mitigation.

The project manager is responsible for overall quality assurance and project delivery; including key-stage sign-off, customer engagement, reporting and change control. Post-implementation they will also ensure users receive the right training so you can make the most of your investment in technology.

Best-Practice Methodology for IT Project Management

ONI adhere to two Project Management methodologies; MSP (Managing Successful Programmes) principles and PRINCE2 Project Management. For complex transformational programmes – MSP is a best-practice framework for delivering transformational change in accordance with long term corporate strategies with the goal to deliver new business capabilities which in terms produce business benefits.

Like Prince 2, MSP was developed for and is owned by the UK Office of Government Commerce (OGC). It provides a framework of best practice principles and concepts for programme management drawn from latest experiences and proven practice in setting up and managing programmes.

All projects start with identifying the business case and establishing defined roles and responsibilities. The framework allows for greater control over both project resources and risk management.

By adopting a consistent, repeatable approach to project management we are able to maintain transparency, ensure effective communication to both technical and managerial stakeholders and monitor project performance across a range of KPIs.
