Solutions to Support Unlimited Possibilities
Go-Live date is September 1, 2013
In mid-October, the UTShare Project Management Office (PMO) Team conducted a go-live checkpoint to review progress towards key milestones, and the remaining effort needed to meet the April 2013 go-live target. The prior adjustments made have held us constant, but we have not been able to move forward at a pace that would allow us to make an April 2013 date. We do not consider this a failure by any means. It is a reflection of the complexity of both our collaborative efforts and the magnitude of our task.
The Executive Committee reviewed several options and decided on the following:
Our new Go-Live date is September 1st, 2013. We must be ready for Go-Live no later than August 1, 2013 to prepare for cutover.
We have decided to defer the implementation of eDevelopment and ePerformance, to a later date. We will begin working on the implementation of these modules once we have achieved stabilization of our system.
We believe this adjustment supports our goals of ensuring a quality implementation through adequate testing while building internal capability. These adjustments do not mean we can slow down. We must strive to meet our key milestones along our critical path and be ready no later than August 1, 2013, allowing us a smooth transition to our new PeopleSoft system before the end of this fiscal year. The PMO is working to revise the detail schedule and will be sharing milestones in follow-on communications. Please continue to work on preparing for integration testing by focusing on conversion validation and system testing.
