A crucial or necessary project?
EPM platform migration
Migrating your EPM platform can be a necessary evil or an opportunity. In either case, oversight of a migration project is vital in order to guarantee continuity of platform use.
When your Enterprise Performance Managament solutions (EPM) are installed, monitoring of the publishers’ new releases becomes necessary. Questions then arise, such as:
How long is my version supported? Which new version should I install? What new functionalities are provided? What impact will the use of these new functionalities or versions have on my existing applications? My enterprise is migrating to Internet Explorer version X: will my management platform still function? How much time does a migration take, and how can it be inserted into my users’ reporting calendar with no interruption of service?
Migration, your challenges:
- Ensuring compatibility with third-party systems
- Taking advantage of new functionalities
- Maintaining publisher support
