Case Study – IT Project Management
A global Malaysian bank specialising in retail banking with the biggest network in ASEAN.
Relocating 3 floors of office IT infrastructure with a tight deadline
Relocating 2 x separate trading floors, and 2 x separate data centres
Coordinated the installation of over 15 lease lines (with 8-week lead times).
Making sure all 10 vendors work to the schedule to make the deadline
Downtime had to be kept to a minimum
Planning for Success
After coming on board, we spent several meetings understanding their current infrastructure and what was required at the new site. This time was spent determining the most time critical components and making sure the business knew about the deadlines for approval.
Knowing the long approval process would be a risk to the project, we had to find alternative solutions, that would still allow the entities to relocate their staff while keeping their infrastructure in place.
Both entities already had preferred vendors for the relocation and hardware purchases. With services relying on multiple vendors we assisted in coordinating and creating a time table for the installation and testing of the equipment at the new site.
Problems we Solved
During the move, a vendor had tripped the power which cascaded to the server room’s power box, causing the server racks to lose power, because the UPS had not been installed yet. We coordinated between the power vendor and server technicians to make sure power was back up and wouldn’t trip again, before the equipment was powered up again and they could continue configuring.
After we had finished the move, the phone lines didn’t work. We had to coordinate with the telephone vendors and network engineers to get the line working again.
