Hiring a Freelance IT project manager

The value of IT Program Management

Delivering real change is difficult without a central point of focus. Trying to manage change or a specific delivery of IT infrastructure or software, either on premises or in the cloud must be orchestrated by a single point of reference.

Just as a conductor ensures an orchestra is in sync to deliver a stunning piece of music with various pieces coming in at different times according to a schedule, so too is the program manager instrumental in ensuring the correct delivery model is deployed, whether that be waterfall or agile, or a mix of the two. The program manager is the conductor.

IT Program Management ensures that constituent parts of a program or project are progressing as per an agreed plan, helping to provide regular updates to stakeholders that have a vested interest in the outcome of the delivery of a product or service.

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail

The role is essential to the successful delivery of any program of work, without which is likely to result in delivery delays, budget overruns, and expectations mismanagement.

At Outvise, you can find experienced IT Program Management experts in just 48 hours.

Be that for a simple and quick migration, a full end-to-end transformation involving hardware, software or data either in the cloud or on premises, or simply an assurance review of your current state.

Challenge, Context, Problems to be solved

The company drive embodies being able to deliver excellence in experience for all participants in its value chain. This includes being able to bring disparate parts of the organization and its ecosystem together, in a digitally-led world. In order to achieve this, big data and data analytics sits at the heart of the way the business is driven – being able to understand what has happened in the past and the future effects of it, as well as the actions that are required.

Mission, tools and methodology

The role of the IT Project Manager was to build a new platform from the ground up; something which would be robust enough to support all the company’s current and future reporting and analytics requirements, as well as something that was capable of IoT, machine learning and deep learning in the IR4.0 era.
To enable this, a profound change was required in the way people, processes and technology interrelatedly operated.
