Description

This is becuase flash will no longer be supported, and the current tools to configure Degreeworks rely on flash. The de-support issue is the primary reason for the upgrade. While we review the various versions that we can upgrade to, we will need to decide which version will best suit our needs, and we may need to revisit some of our customizations.

Goals

  1. Tech Plan - Data Analytics and Reporting

Risks

  1. Medium Impact On Other Projects

    There are many other competing projects in IIT and in the business units

  2. Medium Increased Workflow Complexity

    We do not yet know how much work it will be to install the new version. There appear to be new required components, and our in house expertise for those components is minimal to none.

  3. Medium Learning Curves

    There appear to be new required components, and our in house expertise for those components is minimal to none.

  4. Medium Resource Bottlenecks

    There are many other competing projects in IIT and in the business units

  5. Medium Unknown Complexity

    We do not yet know how much work it will be to install the new version.
