Whether designing a server room space, building out a data center, or planning to upgrade IT equipment there are several crucial steps that go into successfully completing the entire project.
When a business utilizes in-house staff to act as project management to implement a project, the risk of having a misstep or problem with the project increases. Between their existing daily business activities and managing the project plan, in-house staff can be easily overwhelmed with work. Should a misstep occur in the project plan, a company will typically incur increased costs and project delays, not to mention frustrated team members.
By utilizing Instor’s Data Center Project Management Services, facilities managers and operators are protected from a myriad of problems. Data center project managers provide a structured and standardized approach to build outs. Project managers have valuable insight and experience from multiple builds that will lower the project risks and facilitate a predictable outcome. Using a project manager’s expertise will lower project costs, expedite project timelines, and ensure quality control.
Whenever it’s time to build out a project, Instor’s Data Center Project Management Services have you covered every step of the way.
With over 25 years of experience, we consult with our clients and know what questions to ask to best suit their individual needs. We consult with our end users to build out the space with the best data center solution the first time, while allowing for future expansion opportunities.
Project managers collaborate with end users to determine the overall scope of the project both from the technical standpoint and by determining the resources needed to complete the project. Project management allows a facilities manager and operators to focus on their own business instead of worrying about meetings, orders, and implementing a project.
A project manager also defines the parameters and scope of the project. Once the scope of the project is determined, project managers coordinate all communication and efforts between the contractors, the hardware and software providers, and the end users. The project manager clearly defines the specific roles and responsibilities of each member of the entire team according to a schedule. This ensures that there are no steps overlooked and prevents the duplication of effort throughout the project duration.
