Upgrade Assessment

Companies that do not keep their software investments current with the latest releases do not benefit from the most up-to-date features that allow to keep pace in today’s competitive marketplace. They may eventually find themselves in situations where their applications are no longer supported by their software vendors. Upgrades could span across multiple releases and become large projects that involve databases, platforms and applications.

  • Evaluate application functionality, technological enhancements, operational and adoption considerations.
  • Conduct interactive, solution-based sessions that explore upgrade options and evaluate readiness.

  • Provide detailed impact analysis, upgrade roadmap, and effort.
