Going live on an enterprise software upgrade in a smooth, cost efficient manner takes planning, testing, and end-user involvement, but it starts by narrowing upgrade scope. A leaner, more technical upgrade simplifies end-user training, as well as testing.
To sum up, the keys to a lean, efficient software upgrade process include:
By following a leaner, technical upgrade, time and cost are taken out of projects via factors such as less user training and acceptance testing.
By doing away with many customizations via the use of configurable fields or standard functionality, there will be less time spent redeveloping and testing customizations.
Time spent on upgrades by “super-users” and other users is broken down into more manageable phases when you follow a technical upgrade with targeted mini-projects to roll out select enhancements.
By shortening the time involved in upgrade projects, there is less disruption to the business.
From a software lifecycle perspective, a lean upgrade process delivers lower TCO while enabling the steady addition of desirable functions.
