What is Change Impact Analysis?

Change Impact Analysis provides a structured approach for looking at a proposed change. This process helps identify the impacts or consequences of the change. This makes it an important tool for evaluating the magnitude of work involved in a project and whether there are sufficient resources to see it through. It also helps identify and manage critical issues that may arise during the course of the project.

Impact Analysis is crucial to successfully manage changes and implementations to complex applications. Failure to accurately predict the impact of changes may invite unforeseen consequences and can derail an IT project leaving you and your team high and dry as the deadline looms.
