Preparing for and Delivering Cloud ERP Transformation (separate registration is required)

Monday, March 18 | 1:00PM–5:00PM ET | Room 551
Session Type: Industry Led
Delivery Format: Preconference Workshop
Transformation of legacy data and manual processes to a modern, cloud-based system presents challenges that institutions must consider when implementing a new technology. In this session, the presenters, industry experts, and cloud adopters will guide you through a road map of recommended approaches when planning a move to the cloud. Hear form industry experts from the Tambellini group, who will provide you with insight and unbiased analysis of the market. Learn about tools available to assist as you build the case for change in a manner that is straightforward and easy to present to executives, boards, and presidents. Once we have discussed making the case for change, we will address how to plan for the project to ensure that you deliver the value of cloud transformation. Through case studies presented by system implementers and an interactive customer panel, learn about considerations in the planning phase and the structuring of governance, design, and deployment, as well as the institution’s transition to support. Examples include approaches to facilitating design and conversion, managing scope, and driving user adoption. If you know that your aging on-premise administrative and student systems can’t keep pace with the needs of the modern institution but are not sure where to start to get the support, funding, and legacy data ready for a change, you won’t want to miss this session!
