IT Project Management - You've got a job to do. You have to deliver an IT project on time and on budget. Things start out ok, you're making routine progress on the road to completion... your project is flying along. But then...
Headquarters calls with a new plan. Everything you've done up 'til now is invalid. You have to deliver a more complex project, sooner, and with fewer resources at hand. You have to work nights, weekends and holidays, and attend endless meetings. Your team spends most of its time overcoming project obstacles, including resistance from your own leadership. Productivity is WAY down.
Everyone on your project team is on edge, stressed out, ready to snap. But finally, you can see the light at the end of the tunnel, you're finally ready to roll out and go live, and then...
At the last minute, something goes wrong in testing. Something that should have been discovered early on, but wasn't. Something that puts the whole project in jeopardy. As project leader, it's all on you now. Your project, your career, your sanity are at stake, and you're going to have to take drastic measures to get the job done...
Have you've seen this movie too many times before? Projectcomp can re-write the script.
Disaster Planning - Bad things happen, and you need to be prepared. But assigning staff resources to develop, maintain, and test disaster recovery plans is tough. Everybody is busy, and nobody wants to do it. Writing and reviewing documentation, revising and re-designing plans to meet changing business needs, coordinating tests and evaluating results - all necessary, and all about as popular as a trip to the dentist. But the alternative is unthinkable. If lightning strikes and you're not ready...

Facilities Analysys / Management - The best equipment with the latest software in a bad facility causes outages, premature failures, and is the single largest cause of poor service levels.
Planning, budgeting, and maintenance of its data facility can maintain consistently high service levels for an organization. But when business demands force budget cuts, and maintenance is dropped or neglected, an inordinate amount of risk is assumed without the business realizing it. A PDU that is not maintained is more costly and dangerous then no power protection at all. Poorly grounded electrical connections, inadequate fire suppression systems, sub-standard cabling...

Let Projectcomp design and implement secure data transfer processes for you.
Backup and Retrieval - Data backup is routine and mundane stuff, until you find out that no one has noticed your tape drives have been failing for the last 6 months and you haven't backed up a single file for a long, long time... you've heard the horror stories. Or maybe you've lived them.
Let Projectcomp design a backup strategy that meets your business needs, protecting your data and minimizing your cost.
