Most exciting thing that's happened this week is publishing the floor plans for the new building we're moving into in a couple of months. Always a bit traumatic, trying to work out where everyone should go, getting working relationships right, making sure we've got enough kitchens, social space etc. There's been a lot of hard work over the last week, but, we've done it now. Will be great for many of us to be in one building, rather than spreadout across many as we are now. Seems to be some disappointment that the plans don't show a hot tub or brewery, both of which could apparently be heated from the data centre next door.....
Other exciting things happening at the moment include a major SAP upgrade happening right now, which is the culmination of a lot of very hard work - more on that next week. It seems to be going well, but I don't want to tempt fate too much!
We've had a strategic liaison meeting with the Faculty of Social Sciences. where we talked a lot about the need for identity management, especially for handling some of our international ventures, and the eLearning strategy that we're currently developing.
And that's it for this week from me - I've spent most of it without a voice, with a sore throat and an aching head. Home for the weekend to recover!
