With a heavy investment in the legacy ERP system, many customers are not in a hurry to move to a cloud native ERP platform (i.e. SaaS). For these customers, the best path forward is most likely a migration project moving to either a public or private cloud for the underlying infrastructure, aka “Lift and Shift”. For a fraction of the cost customers can quickly alleviate concerns in regards to many of the most pressing issues associated with the legacy ERP platform including hardware refresh on a regular basis, outsourced maintenance, improved monitoring, ready access to top tier support professionals for urgent issues, greater scalability, enhanced business continuity service levels and improved security (yes, in most cases a properly architected cloud solution is more secure than the typical on-premise legacy platform). But, just like any business initiative, proper planning is the key to success and this panel of experts will help shed light on many of the key issues to consider based on dozens of successful Lift-and-Shift engagements.
