Co-ordinating multiple vendors and, the delivery, testing and migration of new IT equipment, and systems, into a fully operational data centre build was challenging initially. However, through close liaison with the client and third-party contractors along with coordination of critical path items and activities optimised, the business environment was handed over successfully and before the deadline.
