Section One: Programme Commentary, RAG and Resources Update

Programme Commentary

The two main bits of progress to report on are the deployment to LIVE of the JIRA upgrade, as planned, in late August - ahead of the change freeze. Many thanks to the project team for their good work in getting this all done. And the continuing analysis into the issues with SOA, which has not yet found a definite solution. The COM043 project team are to be commended for their persistence in seeking a resolution (with assistance from Oracle) and it is hoped that this will be sorted soon.

COM045 remains suspended until October, at least.

The figures and planning have all been published for the new financial year, and the first new COM project - Office 365 Security Hardening - is due to commence in September now that we have a PM for this one.
