Track: Exhibitor

Session Number: 9965
Date: Mon, Feb 27th, 2023
Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Description:

When starting a digital transformation, it is best to know why you're doing it. Is moving to the Cloud a means to an end, or an end in itself? In this session we'll take a hopefully sober, and likely sobering look at outcomes you can expect when you put these three objectives in various orders. Moving to the cloud will definitely change user experience and functionality - probably in both positive and negative ways. Cloud moves always change cost structures - but don't automatically reduce cost.

Your priorities should dictate the timing of your Cloud move, and may contradict herd mentality. You may find it worthwhile to invest in dramatically improving your PeopleSoft user experience today while you are preparing for your Cloud move. Sorry if we're the first to tell you this, but SaaS won't magically make everything better.

Warning: Sacred cows (and conventional wisdom) are not safe in this session! We will explore possible paths that start with Moving to the Cloud, Making Users Happy or Saving Money. With each path comes unique insight and tips to making that path a success - and the pitfalls you can expect. What, did you think this was going to be easy?
