Success Path
Everything you need to implement IoT for remote monitoring

Finalize Project Plan

Compile the work you’ve done to create your IoT strategy into one project plan. 

Gather detailed costs

With your IoT initiative planning nearly complete, next compile a final list of project costs.

Add up the final costs of:

  • Equipment such as hardware, software, and networking
  • Internal and external resources
  • Any potential financial impact this project could have on current operations due to outages, shortages, etc.

We recommend that you include a 10-15% contingency on your final budget to support unplanned costs that may come up during the project.  

Document final project plan

Your project plan should provide a detailed view of everything you need to do to complete your project. This plan should include:  

  • Specific tasks
  • The people responsible for tasks
  • When each task needs to be completed 

Use the documented strategies you’ve created so far as your starting point. No task is too small. Include everything from development and launch tasks to training and communication plans. Also include critical project milestones you can report back on to your stakeholders.    

Get approval on the final budget and project plan

Take your detailed costs and final project plan back to your executive stakeholders for final review and approval.
