Your Business Challenges

Upgrade services help organizations transition from a prior release of PPM to the current release. These may be contracted and performed together or separately.

The assessment identifies risks and benefits that impact technical and business stakeholders and develops a tailored upgrade strategy for your organization. Working with your staff, the team also evaluates opportunities to improve processes and solution performance.

The solution upgrade is designed to implement the current PPM release in a manner that captures your deployed features and options, which will reduce the work required of your team while accelerating your transition to the current release.

Overview

Upgrade services provide an efficient approach to assess risks and opportunities associated with upgrading your solution and to perform the actual upgrade. This model allows you to decouple the planning and design phases from execution to provide flexibility for scheduling, staffing and work required to improve readiness prior to transitioning to the current release.

Enterprise Studio will work with your team to gather important data about your business needs, your current implementation and adoption of PPM as well as the supporting IT infrastructure. The process segments and analyzes these findings to deliver an end-to-end upgrade strategy tailored to your specific needs.

To proceed with the actual upgrade, the team incorporates these findings and recommendations into an upgrade plan to transition from a prior version of PPM to the current version. These services also help to discover ways to derive additional value from PPM through better product usage and increased utilization of functions that can benefit your organization. Recommendations will cover a wide range of areas such as ways to improve solution performance and business processes through the support of new solution enhancements.
