Report for April 2017

Report Date
April 2017

Overview

The supplier is currently updating the project plan based on the supply of SSD cards in June, and reflecting the conflict ITI teams are having with other high priority projects. We remain confident that Softcat will be on site in May to start the build, however the delivery dates are expected t push out. Once we have the technical implementation plan in place, then the plannining around service preparation, handover, modelling, the organisation of the UAT, and communications to the user community can be put in place.

Achievements in Last Period

  • updated plan with confirmed booking for ITI and Apps and SSD issue taken into account - not achieved
  • updated plan with SSD delay taken into account - achieved
  • documents ready by 4/4 for project board on 11/4 - scope restated, road map, world UX map - achieved
  • agreed design document - not achieved

 

Issues and Risks

  • SSD cards are suffering a global shortage resulting in a delay of 80 days  - we can resolve this by ordering high capacity versions
  • We have technical issue (from DTP003 Windows 10 project) that needs to be resolved- AD and DNS need configured
  • We have technical issue (from DTP003 Windows 10 project) that needs to be resolved - images can be propagated through university device management
  • Enterprise team cannot provide the people when needed to deliver the current planned build in June - replanning required

RAG Commentary
Issue – There is a global shortage of SSD cards - project team assessing viability of ordering different specification that can be delivered sooner. This could be more expensive (much less than 10% of project). Issue - We have technical issue (from DTP003 Windows 10 project) that needs to be resolved- AD and DNS need configured Issue - We have technical issue (from DTP003 Windows 10 project) that needs to be resolved - images can be propagated through university device management Issue - Enterprise team cannot provide the people when needed to deliver the current planned build which now moves into June - replanning required and/or re-prioritising conflicting projects No action by SMT required.
