Lunch and Learn – Successful Software Implementations and Upgrades

Event Start From January 31st,2017

This Lunch and Learn took place at the DeVry campus in Downers Grove Illinois on the morning of Tuesday January 31st, 2017.

The focus of this particular event in our popular Lunch and Learn series centered on how to prepare for successful ERP software implementations and upgrades. By exploring real life examples, sharing lessons learnt and leveraging tools, this Lunch and Learn provided tangible steps to help ensure you are ready for your next ERP project.

We discussed an ERP case study that exemplifies common planning oversights and the resulting implications, including:
• Unexpected materials and inventory carrying costs that significantly impact business
• Missing use cases prior to implementation

In addition we reviewed a real-life business scenario showing the consequential financial loss. We then looked at testing best-practices process improvements to prevent these oversights from occurring. Finally we showed how you can implement these best-practices using test automation and a quality management solution.
