Upgrading an ERP system presents a number of challenges to many organisations. However, many of these challenges can be alleviated by integrating a business intelligence (BI) solution during the upgrade process. This is especially true if the BI solution is based on a data warehouse and implemented using a data warehouse automation platform.
Data conversion is one of the key activities involved in upgrading an ERP system. Therefore, it is also an appropriate time to assess the quality of the data that will be converted. Businesses that decide to implement a data warehouse during the ERP will discover that doing so provides an opportunity to address all their data quality issues.
“The tasks involved in the ERP upgrade process become more straightforward and less time-consuming when a data warehouse and BI solution is part of the upgrade.”
Traditionally, report conversion is another key activity of the ERP upgrade process. However, when businesses are implementing a data warehouse at the same time, they have an opportune moment to reevaluate their reporting needs to avoid spending time converting obsolete reports.
This whitepaper will examine the challenges of data migration and report conversion in an ERP upgrade and how integrating a data warehouse-based BI solution into the project can help.
