Report for May and June

Report Date
June 2019

Achievements

  • Progress made on developing the mobile app for ID on phone with basic structure created
  • Apps Software Developer has set up emulator on PC for proof of concept on desktop as per development pathway

Issues

  • Development Service Resource Coordinator re-negotiated Apps Software Developer time to meet needs of a MyEd high priority project on 27 June: this caused suspension of developer work to 12 July from which point resource will be committed full time to USI016
  • Requirements from Apps Development Technology have been identified by Apps Software Developer: server for displaying the user interface on the phone; server for microservice to fetch data
  • Resources from Apps Development Technology are not scheduled: advice is resources cannot be committed unless conflict for time   
  • Proof of concept to deploy to Dev/Test for testing by select users is in doubt
  • Further steps after UAT would be needed: deploy to Live (UI/Microservice), set up Apple/Google account and complete process to publish the mobile app

Next Steps

  • Apps Software Developer to work full time on USI016 from 12 July.
  • Detailed requirements for Dev/Tech are to be provided by Apps Software Developer to Mark Lang/Gillian Henderson for review.
  • Raise conflict for Dev/Tech resource.
  • Reallocate projected underspend of £1710 for USI016 for Dev/Tech work; or return to Innovation Programme if unspent.

RAG Commentary
RAG Status for Time is red because Apps Dev/Tech resource has not been secured to enable proof of concept mobile app to be developed beyond local desktop of Apps Software Developer. Cost is Amber because Apps Dev/Tech resource has not been estimated: however, project has £1710 unallocated which could be used for this purpose, or returned to the Innovation Programme if unspent. Scope is Amber because the project will deliver a proof of concept to desktop; may deliver proof of concept to test, but will not deliver to Live. Overall RAG is red.
