A paper for digital project managers who want to understand the key risks they will find with large-scale website developments
Your enterprise website needs an overhaul, and your development team has been asked to make it happen. Your ability to simultaneously move all four of the project pillars - technology, infrastructure, team skills and communication - will have bearing on the success of the site project. Of all the different IT projects an enterprise can undertake, perhaps none is as challenging as a website deployment. We have seen these challenges come in different shapes and sizes at Magnolia, ranging from migrating existing content to making sure that developers who are actually implementing the project (you) are adequately trained. Understanding what to expect will help you create an effective risk mitigation plan and ensure that your website project doesn't go down in flames.
