422 Group & Continuum Implementation

I previously posted about our new database. I’m the Project Manager. This is my first experience with something like this and everyone I know who’d been through it before was skeptical. Not of me, but of the intensity of the process. My husband, who was on the team for him former employer’s implementation, said this was going to be HARD! I remember he spent one whole weekend away from home, stayed up all night, slept in our SUV during breaks, etc. My best friend is a Systems Analyst and she has told me countless stories of staying up all night. My boss has also shared similar stories.

So how are we doing, just a few weeks in? GREAT! We’ve submitted all of our workflows, the Test Data file should be on the way, we’ve submitted all of our preliminary worksheets (except for one) and I think so far so good! I know we’re way early in the process, but our Project Liasion has been really encouraging and told me we were on the right track, getting things in really early. Hopefully that’s just a sign of things to come!

I’m on vacation one week from tomorrow and from what I can tell, we’ll get access to the test database right before I return. Perfect timing! I know there’s a lot to go but I’m so excited about how things are going! I think we may be able to pull this off with a little time to spare. Or maybe just some time to have room for error, huh?
