Programme Commentary

In this reporting period good progress has been made on the Drupal development. The project is now entering the final development iteration before release of the MVP client. Theming for the additional content type is also on track to deliver within schedule. The UWP site has now gone LIVE on EdWeb.  A lot of progress has also been made with the user story backlog in preparation for the next release. 

The migration project UWP010 has finished planning with work on the JIRAs generated from the predecessor project started.

The next period will be very busy, in addition to the MVP release and starting the early adopters migration, 3 year planning is now in full swing. The directional statement for UWP has been agreed. Work will now concentrate on developing the planning proposals and estimation before the next milestone 21/11/14.
