Managing IS/IT project risks

Your city has decided to install e-voting systems across the region for the upcoming election. These systems should simplify the process of counting ballots and votes and ease voter tensions and concerns about election rigging. But what are the risks? How, as a project manager, would you manage the risks associated with this e-voting project’s life cycle?

Explain why project managers should analyse the risk of failure as an essential part of the planning phase of an IS/IT project. What additional risks does a project manager take when he/she fails to plan for supportability, maintainability, scalability and recovery when designing and selecting potential solutions? Which mitigation approaches are more likely to be used for system-related and project-related risks?
