        Data Center Projects: Systems Planning

        Planning of a data center physical infrastructure project need not be a time consuming or frustrating task. Experience shows that if the right issues are resolved in the right order by the right people, vague requirements can be quickly translated into a detailed design. This paper outlines practical steps to be followed that can cut costs by simplifying and shortening the planning process while improving the quality of the plan. Read White Paper #142

        Data Center Projects: Standardized Process Project Management

        In data center design/build projects, flaws in project management and coordination are a common – but unnecessary – cause of delays, expense, and frustration. The ideal is for project management activities to be structured and standardized like interlocking building blocks, so all parties can communicate with a common language, avoid responsibility gaps and duplication of effort, and achieve an efficient process with a predictable outcome. This paper presents a framework for project management roles and relationships that is understandable, comprehensive, and adaptable to any size project. Read White Paper #141
