A well-organized project plan and reasonable resource costing are important for securing project approval from senior management. Use the Applications Review Work Plan Costing Tool to create a detailed application inventory analysis plan. Include time and cost estimates for each activity, project an overall estimated amount of resource investment for the complete project cycle, track resource time allocated in each phase, and monitor the progress of application review analysis.
With this tool, IT leaders will be able to determine the feasibility of a consolidation initiative by assessing the following factors in detail:
- Projected activity schedule.
- Required staffing model on the application review team.
- Relevant resource costing estimate for the project.
Based on the assessment of these factors, IT leaders will be able to anticipate potential objections and pitfalls, formulate strategies to overcome those challenges, and bring about a successful, satisfying result by project completion.
