This was followed by a brief overview of the Integrated Financial Management System (IFMS) project which went live for its first cohort of users in July 2023 and the Estates project NEIS which completed its third phase of deployment during the year. IFMS is one of the major national projects currently in the HSE. We were delighted to introduce our guest speakers, Fran Thompson, Chief Information Officer and Helen Coughlan, Chief Technology Officer. In Fran’s presentation he acknowledged the fundamental role of Corporate Delivery Staff. He gave the team an overview of the last 12 months and discussed the plans for the year ahead. Helen gave an insightful view on HSE Technology Office and how to engage with the various teams within her office such as Cloud, SaaS and Hosting Request Process. Helen updated Corporate Delivery on the positive progress of user and device migration and the benefits we are seeing because of this. Clarification was also provided on the roles and responsibilities of the newly restructured Tech Office, highlighting how Cloud Services and On-Premise solutions can be requested, managed and supported.
