Large Migration Projects. It's Not About the Software. - #15NTCmigration

The mere implication that one of your major technology systems may need to be replaced strikes fear into the most experienced of IT directors. It is estimated that almost 40% of large projects fail outright, while more than 80% go over budget and/or time. The cost and intricacy of large systems often overshadows the change management aspects that are required to succeed. Staffing, training and business procedures are every bit as important in a large migration project as the technology you choose and its cost. It is crucial to clarify to leadership and stakeholders that these projects are much more about transforming the way you do business, than about computer purchases and software installations.

Join us for this panel that will discuss how important communication, efficiency, and project management are to a successful migration. We will walk you through some of the most important steps, including preliminary audits, RFPs, managing expectations, sponsorship, change management, effective timelines, planning for day 2, and more. Be one of the 20%!
