About the Project About the Project

Consultation

In most case, key managers in your business area will have been in discussion with us about report migration, but if you want to know more about the migration process, or are a report owner and have further questions, please contact Adam Green (Management Information) or Leon Doughty (Operational Reporting) in the first instance.

Accessing reports - timeline and milestones

Our previous reporting tool, Oracle Discoverer, was withdrawn in August 2016. The core project aim was to implement a successor and migrate all reports from the legacy system. The project team was made up of members from ISD and Planning, and the project was overseen by a broad board on which key stakeholders were represented. The board was chaired by Ian Callaghan, Director of Planning.
