Report for January 2018

Report Date
January 2018

Summary

The build of the VSAN solution to replace the Atlantis is now complete.

One outstanding fix for the Netscaler in regard to HTML5 needs to be done, but otherwise there is no more build required from Softcat and the Desktop team have started development in January as planned.

The project plan has been updated and the scheduled dates for completion of build, testing and delivery of the new service, agreed as realistic and attainable by the project team. The project manager has sent an update to the project board early January, to include the new payment schedule and UAT dates.
