The work streams are progressing well and issues are being tackled as they occur.  Indeed those streams that were Amber last month have returned to Green.

Rooms is noted as 'red' due to non-project related refurbishments in two rooms.  The project team are confident that if we can gain access to the rooms we can deploy our hardware.  At the moment one room has a finish date of the Friday before teaching.  Our plan is to access that room in the last week of its refit.  The other room has more contingency time, however should the estates refit be delayed further it will have a knock on effect not only for our project but more importantly for any teaching scheduled in those rooms.

PM Commentary

To put the effort within this implementation into context the original Media Hopper (Kaltura) was launched within 3 months of the contract being signed which was hailed as a fast turnaround.  Even with that it was launched as a pilot, with another semester before the official go live date. Media Hopper Replay is being launched just over 2 months after the contract was signed.   We did have access to our supplier before the contract was signed, but it was not full access.  Additionally, although this is a transition launch it is still a major launch across the campus.

Thank you to everybody for the huge effort to get to this stage.
