Project Request

Use this service to request an IS project.

Project management is the discipline of planning, organizing, and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives.

A project is a temporary endeavor, having a defined beginning and end (usually constrained by date, but can be by funding or deliverables) undertaken to meet particular goals and objectives, usually to bring about beneficial change or added value. The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast to business as usual (or operations), which are repetitive, permanent or semi-permanent functional work to produce products or services. In practice, the management of these two systems is often found to be quite different, and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and the adoption of separate management.
