Database project management Plan
Database project management involves the creation and the support of databases, as well as the designing and the implementation of processes and workflows to support them. This is a vital department within Information Technology (IT) management and one of the most important aspects in many business applications because it supports all departments involved in its functionality - production, sales, technical, and even service, with the database project management plan supporting each department's efforts via the information it provides, both on-the-ground and off-site. Without a well-designed and implemented database project management plan, databases that would support a department's activities are unstable and prone to failures. This can cause processes that are vital to the performance of the department to fail, affecting the products and/or services produced by the company.
When it comes to the design of a database project management plan, a few general things should be kept in mind: first, it should always include an IT governance policy, which stipulates the procedures and standards to be used when developing the database and keeping it up-to-date. Second, the policies should include a procedure for periodically reviewing and updating the security policy, which is very crucial in the data centers' operations. Most of these policies are incorporated into the IT governance policies through the use of formal and informal self assessment techniques - these are the steps that should be considered when forming a database self-assessment plan. The third and most important part is the identification of the roles of all personnel in the company involved in database management. The other areas that the self assessment will cover include the staff levels of every department involved in database project management, the scope of their tasks, the roles they will be given, the responsibilities and limitations of each individual, and last but not least, the specific processes that will be undertaken in order to ensure that the entire project is successful and efficient.

The planning, development, implementation, and management of a successful database project management plan requires the right questions to be asked and the right answers to be given. The wrong choices would mean failure to achieve goals and results. The right questions will lead to a better understanding of what is needed to achieve the objectives, as well as the right answers. When the IT governance policy and the performance assessment are considered together, they form the basis of the IT governance process group, which works to ensure the success of projects and policies.
