Section One: Programme Commentary, RAG and Resources Update

Programme Commentary

There are still 4 open projects in the programme, and at the time of reporting things were looking positive for all of these. The latest Wiki upgrade had been successfully deployed to Live in late June. This was further testament to the good work done by the project team, and was hugely helped by their flexibility in working out of standard hours. The JIRA upgrade was still in planning, and being managed by our student intern. The SOA upgrade (COM043) had gotten over the reported issues in Test, and was ready to be deployed to Live in early July. And, on the back of the resolution of these issues, the IDM database upgrade (COM045) was being readied for migration to Test, with new milestones being drawn up and the eventual delivery being moved back again into 19/20.

However, while COM046 and COM047 can now advance, respectively, towards closure and build (in Dev), the latter two projects have hit issues again with the problems encountered when the SOA upgrade was deployed into Live, then rolled back. This is still being analysed and the final  impact on COM043 and COM045 is still to be determined.

AMBER. Project delayed due to COM043 SOA upgrade.

Report by Chris Konczak for June 2019

Achievements in Last Period

  • No further progress on project during June due to waiting for the TEST environment to be released from COM043 SOA upgrade project.
  • Milestones have been replanned and project re-resourced from the next available COM043 deployment date communicated at the time which is now 09/07/2019.

Issues

  • Continuing issues with COM043 have prevented progress with DEV sign off and with the migration to TEST on COM045. A new go-live date for COM043 is now the 09/07/2019. COM045 TEST has been replaned to begin after this date.
  • WIS milestone changes has been rejected on 28/06/2018 as there needs to be confirmation of the 27 days carryover into 2019/20 on the project from Head of Production. This has increased from last month as the project has been pushed out further. Head of Production is on annual leave until 22/07/2019.

Next Steps

  • DEV sign off
  • 2019/20 budget confirmation from Head of Production
  • Commence the TEST upgrade
  • Begin integration testing
