Our Lucas County Oracle Cloud Implementation Project has a new identity!  Going forward we’ll refer to the project as AMP – Applications Modernization Project. When you hear this acronym in the future you’ll know they’re talking about our Oracle Cloud Project.

Process Improvement Teams (PIT) 


The PIT teams are tasked with identifying process improvements that can be implemented during the migration to Oracle Cloud. The PIT teams are meeting regularly to compile current reporting documents and needs that can be implemented with the new system. The PIT team leads are meeting weekly with the Project Manager, Pavan Pasam, to review progress and updates.
 

What’s Next?



Negotiations are underway with Sierra Cedar to finalize the implementation contract. These should be completed by January 31, 2019. Sierra Cedar onboarding will begin and as quickly as possible after the final contract is approved.
