01/18/12: The system upgrade was completed on schedule, the appliance has been deployed, and initial reports and alerts have been configured. This project is now complete.
12/12/11: The project has been delayed, as the vendor was not ready to perform the system upgrades required to enable the necessary alerts and reports within our originally-scheduled time frame. System upgrades began on 12/6/11 and the process should be completed by 12/16/11. Once the upgrade process is complete, we will move ahead with enabling alerts and reports.
