We continue to improve Sprint 2 software quality while the Sprint 3 release Beta Testing is starting this week:

  • Validated the S2 release again and approved all fixes OMBU made based on our reported defects.  There is only one outstanding hot bug to be fixed.
  • OMBU demonstrated Sprint 3 release and deployed it for testing on Monday (11/21/16).  Also, test instructions (including video) were in place to guide Beta Testing.
  • OMBU plans to merge some Phase 3 and Phase 1 work together with an extra sprint in Phase 1 (to be completed by Jan 2017).  This would allow OMBU to complete all Data Model work during the CRM development phase.  We are assessing the risks and determing our next steps

We are making progress to improve Sprint 2 software quality while the Sprint 3 release deployment is delayed for two days.

  • Validated the S2 release and approved 3 major fixes OMBU made based on our reported defects.  They are #20171, #20024, #20170.
  • OMBU needed to delay S3 SW demo and deployment from this Thursday to next Monday (11/21/16).
  • This will allow OMBU time to ensure the Sprint 3 release is ready for prime time and test instructions (including video) are in place and fully tested before the release is deployed.

We extended the S2 Beta testing for an additional week because the SW is difficult to use and lacks sufficient test instructions:

  • We extended the Beta testing for one week to prepare for and educate beta testers on how to test the S2 software.
  • Validated the S2 release, identified issues, and submitted defects.
  • Communicated to OMBU that we would not accept S2 release until the quality is improved.

We are continuing to move forward on the CRM & IT Tools Software. We are currently Beta-Testing Sprint 2. Steps taken over the last few weeks:

  • Accepted Sprint 1 with minor defects. These defects will be addressed with OMBU over the next few weeks.
  • OMBU demonstrated the Sprint 2 release on Oct. 27, and deployed the software to the staging site on Oct. 28.
  • We are now beta-testing the Sprint 2 features, including memberships, groups, opportunities, and campaigns.
  • We have identified some minor bugs in Sprint 2, in addition to one major functionality challenge.
  • We will be providing OMBU with a detailed bug defect report by end of day on Wednesday, Nov. 2.
  • With what we have currently identified in Sprint 2, we are expecting to be able to sign off on Sprint 2 with only minor defects.
