Recently, Network World published an article discussing the simple (but very important) steps that companies can take to ensure that their ERP upgrade efforts remain both on time and budget.
Interestingly, two of the biggest factors listed in the article relate to TESTING! Of course at Worksoft we know well that companies who utilize automated testing as part of their SAP upgrade and maintenance processes reduce their time, effort and costs dramatically. They also ensure that the deployment is high quality, significantly reducing their risk of problems.
Here are a few of the important steps detailed in the article:
- Embrace testing as your friend
- Conduct Comprehensive Load-Testing
- Communicate (maybe this should say over-communicate!)
