Defer ERP System Upgrades and Migrations Until ROI-Ready

ERP system upgrades and migrations are expensive, risky, and usually do not enhance competitive advantage or help drive revenue growth. However, ERP software vendors are forcing their customers to move from robust, stable systems to new and unproven platforms through forced end-of-mainstream-support deadlines and coercive audit or "limited time" license credit offers — without any clear ROI or business value. CIOs can choose to defer ERP upgrade and migration projects that do not contribute to revenue generation until there are proven business cases and demonstrated ROI.

Don’t implement an ERP software upgrade just to stay fully supported

ERP software upgrades used to provide significant, valuable new functionality. Now, instead of looking forward to new features, many ERP customers dread the expensive and disruptive upgrade treadmill — with little perceived new value. Don’t be forced into an upgrade for a system that is performing very well or into an ERP system upgrade only to stay fully supported. Potentially costing millions of dollars, upgrades can also pose significant risks and disrupt business, requiring rebuilding and retesting of customizations and integrations. Maintain full expert support for at least 15 years without any required upgrades or migrations by switching to Rimini Street Unified Support Services.

Achieve strategic flexibility and freedom to choose best-in-class cloud options

Enterprises can take control of their IT roadmaps and make ERP platform migration decisions based on business priorities, including migrating to the cloud on their own terms — instead of giving in to software vendor pressure to "rip-and-replace" well-running, customized systems. Wait for next-generation ERP solutions to mature and for a clear ROI to emerge instead of being pressured to migrate to new software vendor platforms now that may lead to long-term lock-in to an ill-fitting solution. Rimini Street provides full support of current releases, allowing additional time to evaluate future software and release roadmap options from multiple vendors, including new modern options.

Maximize the lifespan and value of current ERP releases

Today’s proven software applications are highly functional, reliably supporting tens of thousands of organizations and billions of dollars in transactions. Existing, stable releases, customized to meet unique business needs, can be run another 15 years or more. Leveraging Rimini Street support can delay or avoid costly and disruptive ERP system upgrades and migrations to focus people, time, and money on strategic initiatives that will help improve company profitability and growth.
