Visualize your Endgame - Develop a Roadmap to the Cloud

Track: Exhibitor

Session Number: 9946
Date: Mon, Feb 27th, 2023
Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Description:

Like many universities, the University of Alabama is in the early stages of considering how to migrate its enterprise systems to the cloud to keep pace with technological advances and to avoid a hurried approach when on-premise systems reach their "end of life". Replacing legacy infrastructure can be a daunting task, but a clear roadmap to the cloud can help increase your chances of success. In this session, hosted by The University of Alabama and Huron, you will learn how to break down your journey into distinct, manageable phases with a focus on not just a cloud-ERP solution, but also the foundational technical and/or organizational efforts that should begin before the cloud-ERP effort begins. Topics will include the initial roadmap process for moving to a cloud-ERP, subsequent infrastructure and change management activities, the "data" connection that integrates all efforts, and the end game of being a better, more data-drive institution.
