“We’re so glad that we brought Sikich in. The experience that they gave us and the help that they gave us is irreplaceable when you’re talking about migrating all of your data, all of your information from a very antiquated operating system into a cloud-based system, it can be a little bit intimidating. They were eager to get into the nitty-gritty with us and figure out; this system can do for us. In my opinion, we succeeded greatly, and we did not miss a beat.”

OPPORTUNITIES NOT TO BE MISSED
Is your ERP system delivering value to the business, or is it merely part of the status quo—the way things are done? Technology, including ERP, should not be an end in itself. It needs to support your company’s vision and strategy. If your solution is highly customized, difficult to update and manage, or experiences latency, which frustrates users and slows production, it’s time for an overhaul.
Modernize your systems with flexible, intuitive solutions that will help attract and retain the right talent.
Connect to IoT, VR, and AR to facilitate innovative engineering and product development.
Make better, faster decisions across organizations with real-time data that users can get their hands-on.
Anytime, anywhere access to ERP capabilities and data.
SO LONG, LEGACY ERP
Some companies customize their older ERP systems to a very high degree as their requirements change. Over time, these customizations become less and less effective as the software becomes more challenging to update and manage, and the effort to keep it aligned with the business never lessens. Integrations of older ERP systems with other software or data sources can also become unmanageable and unreliable or present security vulnerabilities.
Since your initial ERP implementation, the mandates of regulatory compliance impacting your business have likely changed and have become more complex and stringent. New regulations for recognizing revenue, managing and securing sensitive data, and other aspects of your operation need to be reflected in the ERP infrastructure, or you may be at risk for penalties and a loss in brand equity. Not all older ERP systems can keep up with contemporary compliance frameworks.
Both the company’s custom-built systems and vendor-provided solutions can become legacy ERP. Many trends and events can come together to devolve a once-promising software product. Sometimes, staff turnover and the loss of specialized expertise leaves software created in-house without support. Similarly, vendors stop providing updates and service plans for older products. Security vulnerabilities and performance issues that cannot quickly be addressed are another indicator of legacy ERP and the need for a fresh start.
