Brandon Lage presents a case study example on how to achieve maximum value from your ERP in half the time and half the budget
Every year, the average organization’s data volume increases by more than 300%, according to a Gartner report. Never before have we seen the need for more technology-enabled services and digital transformation requirements than now. And one thing’s for sure - it won’t stop, and businesses will need to respond to stay competitive. So let’s ask ourselves: Is my organization’s IT landscape ready to support the next generation’s business requirements to ensure growth? Your competitors are already doing this! Now is the time to get ready for what SNP calls Business Transformation 2.0 – modernizing your IT landscapes for growth.

9:30 am - Beyond the ERP mega-suite - Your path to next generation IT architecture

Are you on-track to achieve cutting-edge ERP? It’s no longer just about the mega-suite, but instead leveraging best-of-breed applications in a blended architecture. The key to unlocking this potential is interoperability which can only be achieved through modernization. In our experience, many SAP customers are still on SAP R/3 4.6C and even those on SAP ECC6.0 are not on the latest SAP EhP, and still on non-Unicode systems. There are many business and technical stops on the ERP modernization roadmap. In this session we will focus on all elements of successful modernization and showcasing a best-of of our customer case studies.

11:30 am - Why an un-organized Interface Landscape can ruin your modernization project

An important component to ensure the rapid and accurate modernization of your ERP system, as well as overall system and data security, is the assessment of your system’s interface landscape. Learn how leading companies quickly determine incoming, outgoing and bi-directional interfaces, including which interfaces are used and which are no longer necessary. This results in reducing the manual and documentation analysis by up to 90% and increases overall system security.
