Good morning, All -

The time is now 3:52 AM on Sunday, January 21, 2018.   

At exactly 4:00 AM, we will officially begin our scheduled outage for the Final Cutover of the ADOA Mainframe to the multi-tenant zCloud environment in Boulder, Colorado.

The LPARs will begin to be brought down from Phoenix, conceivably for the final time, and brought back up in Boulder, with a user verification testing period that is scheduled to run from 6:30 AM until 9:45 AM.

At 9:45 AM, we will have a conference call with all of the agency stakeholders (decision makers) to obtain a FINAL GO/NO GO DECISION.   If we are a "GO," the data will continue its final replication to Boulder and the mainframe system will remain in Boulder from this time forward.   It will, essentially, be "business as usual" from Boulder from this point.

We are all excited for a successful Final Cutover this morning, and congratulate the many ADOA-ASET, IBM and State Agency Representatives, whose incredible collaboration and partnership were the catalyst that drove this project to this point.

The next posting will occur at 5:00 AM this morning.
