 AMBER

 

 Report by Franck Bergeret for November 2013

 

Achievements in last period

  • Closing report has been sign offed by project team

Issues

  • Waiting for guidance from Project Sponsor whether to address remaining issue and enhancement. Further funding would be required to address:

    - outstanding post live issue: error reported on the PGOD export.(I1311015-0105). It is inconsistently happening on several browsers. IS Apps Management has investigated it. . Error logs have not shown any issue. This is not a showstopper as users can make it work by repeating the process.

    - Enhancement: Sponsor would like a functionality to be able to download and export archived data (it currently only allows it for current and future data) .

Next Steps

  • Meet Sponsor and either

    • Close project
    • or agree more funding to complete work
