Increasing Project Success Rate Through Good Change Management Practices

There are various reasons why projects fail. It could simply be the result of insufficient project requirements, high complexity, unrealistic project expectations, even poor leadership, among many others. What many Project Managers (PM) underestimate is the social factor in project management—an inherent risk to any project.


Benefits of Identity and Access Management (IAM)

Identity and access management (IAM) is the discipline to enable the right individuals to access the right IT resources, such as systems applications, files, and networks, at the right time for the right reasons. This often needs to be enabled across diverse technologies and the resulting processes must meet the security policies of the organization. The IAM system is a critical part of IT infrastructure of any larger organization.


It projects complete on time and on budget

The comparison with projects in other industries shows that IT projects are increasingly failing and are being cancelled. Or they end, but are over deadline or budget. According to an international study by the Standish Group, representatives of large companies in DACH, UK and North America stated that 84% of the projects would not be completed or fail in line with deadlines or budgets.


Importance of data migration tests

The ever-increasing amount of data is becoming a major challenge for our companies. The variety of data ranges from employee and customer information to complex scientific data—data that impacts decisions and strategic business movements.


Agile Projects, SCRUM or XP?

SCRUM has been made an everyday term by Jeff Sutherland and you are often confronted with it. Certain elements from SCRUM, such as the Kanban Board and the daily standup meetings, were very well received – even outside of IT.


Working safely in the home office

Our way of working has been turned upside down by the corona virus. Companies had to offer their employees the opportunity to work from home in the shortest possible time. It was not only a challenge to provide the necessary infrastructure. Not infrequently, the necessary safety precautions were also neglected. Thanks to the home office, productivity can be maintained as much as possible. But the new way of working is susceptible to hackers who want to profit from the current situation.
