10 Tips For ERP Upgrade Success

ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) upgrades are mainly planned to take advantage of new technologies and software functionality that will allow the organization to align its business strategies. Upgrades are usually done voluntarily and is generally triggered by a need for expansion, consolidation, centralization or new functionality.

ERP upgrades is one of the important activities in the ERP software lifecycle and an efficient upgrade has a tremendous impact on an organization’s continuous business process improvement. Because it is such an important part of the ERP post-implementation stage, it is essential that organizations understand and succeed during these activities because a significant amount of time and money will be spent on the upgrade project. Lack of experience in your software upgrade partner or project manager will cause the costs and timeframe of the project to exceed what was budgeted.

Question…… If you had to obtain open heart surgery, would you hire the best surgeon you could afford or the cheapest one you could find? If you are like most people, when it comes to your heart, you are going to hire the best surgeon you can afford. This same principle should apply to your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, because it is the heart of your organization. Now if you don’t think this is true, have your ERP system go down for a day or two and watch your business come to a grinding halt, even with business continuance policies and procedures defined. Why? Because your business partners are also expecting to receive computer generated information from your organization via electronic computer interfaces.

JDE 101 Training – A Long Overdue Solution!


I’ve been meaning to bestow accolades upon the team of JDE101 and more specifically to Andy Klee of JDEtips for his efforts in all things related to JD Edwards education. Like many of us old timers at Mitchell & Associates, Andy has been a JD Edwards evangelist for over 20 years.


Realizing there was a shortage of JD Edwards resources in the market place due to retirements, recession and lack of post-secondary training, Andy took it upon himself to initiate a training experience to fill this void in the market place. Having worked in the JD Edwards arena for over 20-years, I can attest to the lack of talented individuals in the pipeline ready to fill open JDE positions. Sadly, I’ve even had a few of my guys retire this year, although they are loving it.
