Report by Karen Stirling for February 2015

Achievements in Last Period

  • Release 3 - 37 JIRAS raised with 19 resolved and tested, 18 remain to be resolved of which 7 have been prioritised as 'must haves'
  • Release 3 Migration Tracker updated with sites migration dates
  • Additional 24 days effort included in project budget to cover migration co-ordinator role activity, to be managed by Project Manager from March 2015 onwards

Issues

  • Due to dependency on local VM to complete migration development activity and UAT, together with the volume of sites being required to be reset, has resulted in a slow running VM which has delayed UAT. The project has requested a new VM to be created for UAT purposes. Update on progress :  VM is now cloned and configured with required name/ip expecting buidl to be completed by 6th March
  • Revised milestones for release 3 and 4 following reviewed of timescales

Next Steps

  • Handover to be completed for migration co-ordinator tasks
  • Resolve and test remaining 'must have' JIRAs
  • Commence auto migration of Release 3 sites to STAGING from 11th March
  • New UAT VM available

 

The project status is GREEN
