Intranet and Public Website - Major Upgrade (Squiz) 17th - 28th November 2023

What is being done?
Squiz are applying a major upgrade to Matrix, the content management system that provides our public website and staff/student intranet sites.

When is it being done?
From Friday, 17th November to Tuesday, 28th November 2023.

Who will this affect?
All users of the public website and/or the staff/student intranet sites.

How will this affect service users?
The intranet and public website will be available throughout, but content editing will be frozen for the duration of the upgrade. The service may be temporarily degraded while the production database is cloned. This step of the upgrade should be completed by midday, Saturday, 18th November.

The switch to the upgraded system should take place during the morning of Tuesday, 28th November, but content editing is likely to remain frozen until the end of the day. There may be disruption during the switch over.

Why is it being done?

This is required to maintain support from the service provider and provide enhancements to the service.
