Modernize and Optimize ERP System Application Roadmaps
The answer from most ERP software vendors to any question is an upgrade to its latest and greatest platform or solution – even if there is a perfectly running ERP system already in place. Now the software vendors are urging customers to migrate to their new platforms, with little regard to what is best for the IT department or company. This dictated roadmap is not driven by business value but by the software vendor’s need for revenue. Modernize and optimize ERP system applications based on a Business-Driven Roadmap, not one that is vendor-dictated.
Strategic enterprise application roadmapping
Many companies today have invested millions in their current ERP systems, but are feeling pressured by software vendors to migrate to leave behind current proven releases for new unproven platforms. Deciding whether to migrate to vendor-proprietary ERP clouds or adopt best-of-breed options to replace specific ERP functionality (e.g. CRM, HCM) causes further uncertainty and unclear application roadmaps. Gain time to evaluate future software and release roadmap options with Rimini Street, with no required updates or migrations for at least 15 years. Leverage Rimini Street roadmap services, with insights from the business-driven roadmaps from thousands of clients, to plot a strategic path forward.
