Somewhere in the overlap between software development, process improvement and psychology

Going live on time

After over a year of work my team finally managed to go live with RPM (Rational Portfolio Manager) this week. On time. Bizarre as that sounds, in fact we actually went live a day early but didn’t tell anyone 😀

We’ve been using RPM at a particular client with a small subset of the user base to capture demand for projects and therefore the development budget for the year since March, as of the 1st of July we went live to the rest of the user base which involved:

  • A tool upgrade from 7.0.5.5 to 7.1.1.1 – not as simple as it sounds in a completely outsourced operational environment
  • A whole load of security configuration, layouts, process definitions etc.

Now we just need people to use it!
