Every organization handles their IT transformation projects differently, depending on their business requirements, applications used, IT team and other available project resources. However, there are some major commonalities when you look at enterprise migration projects larger than 5,000 seats. They are always incredibly complex, costly, and can seemingly take forever if not managed right.
Let's look at a Windows 10 migration as an example. There are different approaches to tackling a project of this scale: You can run it in-house with hand-cranked databases and spreadsheets, you can hire a service provider such as HP Enterprise Services, Atos, Microsoft Consulting Services, Wipro, Fujitsu or HCL to handle the migration on your behalf (they all use Dashworks by the way), or you can deploy Dashworks in-house to enable your team to get organized and stay in control with a central command and control center.
Irrespective of whether you are opting for keeping the project in-house, or using a service integrator, look out for these tell-tale signs that you should leverage the power of an IT transformation project management tool instead of going it alone.
