In which phase of PPDIOO are the network requirements identified?
The Plan phase identifies the network requirements based on goals, facilities, and user needs. This
phase characterizes sites and assesses the network, performs a gap analysis against best-practice
architectures, and looks at the operational environment. A project plan is developed to manage the
tasks, responsible parties, milestones, and resources to do the design and implementation. The
project plan aligns with the scope, cost, and resource parameters established with the original
business requirements. This project plan is followed (and updated) during all phases of the cycle.
