Report for December 2017

Report Date
December 2017

Achievements in Last Period

  • DEV build still in progress. Was planned to finish 22/12, but there are still a number of complexities to be addressed. Progress is being made, but much slower than anticipated. It continues to be difficult to estimate a DEV build completion date, as much of the work relates to new architecture and configuration. We are closely monitoring progress against a triaged and prioritised list of tasks. The EDW build is at the technical leading edge, and the experience gained will prove useful for other non-DTI work.  
  • BI/MI service organization tasks underway.   
  • Org / Hierarchy build complete. Session held with Talend technical pre-sales consultant to review design.  End-to-end demonstration held.
  • Technical guidelines documentation in progress.

Issues

  • Slow progress on DEV infrastructure build (see above).

Next Steps

  • Complete DEV build.
  • Commence TEST build.
  • Continue BI/MI service organisation analysis.

The project is currently reporting AMBER, until either a) the DEV build is complete, or b) the project delivery dates are adjusted.

RAG Commentary
EDW Build is taking longer than originally estimated, due to its bespoke nature.
