Preparation for a Successful Cloud Migration

Why Read This Report

Only 5% of U.S. institutions have selected a modern cloud ERP solution. The other 95% are thinking about it or making plans for it. The question is no longer “if” you move your core systems, such as finance, HCM, student and CRM, to the cloud. It’s “when”. We spoke with many colleges and universities to understand their cloud transformation experience and to capture best practices. Find out the key ingredients and critical factors that surfaced through our research and conversations. Plus, when you make the decision to migrate to the cloud, get helpful insight on the pre-implementation work needed for optimal outcome.

Key Questions Answered:

  • What are the migration successes and failures from actual institutions?
  • What are the major challenges of cloud transformation and how can you overcome them?
  • How will the move to the cloud impact your business process optimization, training, security, and more?
  • What are three kinds of campus stakeholders who can make or break the cloud project?
  • Which group does your institution falls within and how it will impact your end results?
