What you need to know about SaaS Implementations

All successful projects require a clear articulation of the future vision and the roadmap for how to achieve it. Sierra Systems’ Susie McLeod and Ambar Singhai draw from their years of Oracle experience to explain the attributes of a SaaS implementation project and how it follows a different cadence and approach than traditional ERP projects. We will also discuss three steps that will help form the basis for your go forward strategies for key aspects of the project such as configuration, data migration, integrations, security, etc. Written to help Canadian organizations who are embarking on a cloud implementation project in the near term, this presentation sets expectations for what you can expect, and presents best practices for Oracle Cloud implementation strategies.

This is the second episode of a three-part series looking at your journey to cloud from beginning to end. The first episode discusses the upfront rationale and options to move to cloud. Following this second episode we discuss cloud sustainment or Day 2 operations which is once you are live and using a SaaS solution. The target audience for this series is current Oracle on-premise customers, however, the information shared is foundational and can be useful to any HR or Finance organization that is considering a move to cloud.
