Comment from Mark Simmons:

What does “decided to move” mean?  I’m not joking.  The first pitfall is thinking your got approval for one thing when those who “decided” had something else in mind (or maybe each individual had something different in mind).

We completed a comprehensive overhaul of our IT environment in 2014.

1. It started by making a case for the need and giving a broad brush on what needed to be replaced/done and the ballpark cost.

2. Once everyone agreed on the need we moved on to making a specific set of recommendations, including timeline.  At our church I’m a one man band, so I formed a Technology Task Force to pool skills from the congregation to sift through the possibilities and come up with a specific set of recommendations.

3. We then got this approved by our church board.  Even in Silicon Valley most board members have little to know expertise or opinion, EXCEPT when it comes to Mac vs. Windows desktops and WiFi.

4. We implemented infrastructure upgrades first, then desktops and software.  The latter we did in waves where we configured a number of desktops, then set them up in a conference/classroom for user training.  At the end of the user training, we moved the systems to their offices.  One of the best things we did.  Everyone got trained and then got to applying their new skills immediately.  Made the transitions in hardware and software quite smooth.  The staff LOVED this approach.

I wouldn’t begin to advise you on specific products or configurations without knowing a lot more about your environment.

Comment from Aaron Sudduth:

Jason (Lee or Powell),

I certainly could assist in some aspect.  In another thread someone posed the question of recording and posting video of the various sessions and I commented that I certainly could assist in some part of the workflow. (perhaps that would be converting to a usable format, editing, Uploading to an appropriate channel, etc – could also assist in setting up cameras/audio, recording, operating a camera, etc) – although I don’t want to be too involved as where I’d miss the event. (Since I am a volunteer IT guy and actually take off time from work to go to the event)

With that said, certainly ping me and let me know how I can assist and I’ll get out my video director/producer/editor hat :)
