About this webinar
If your company has not recently completed a PLM migration project, then one is coming up whether you know it or not and you should be prepared.
One of the first most important topics will be to “Do-It-Yourself” (DIY) in house, or with and outside company or one of system vendors involved. Often times a system vendor will create a mystique around large migration projects to either talk you out of migrating most of your data or to talk you into a paying for a large migration project. As with home DIY projects there are significant savings and advantage to doing your own migration. However, there also can be substantial also risks. If your team is has the time, is moderately technical, and has a good understanding of the systems in use or planned, there is no reason you can’t approach this as a DIY in house project.
At this session, you will learn about some of the major obstacles that occur when planning and executing large or small migration projects. You will also gain practical advice, best practices examples, and even budgeting tips for approaching a migration project. Too often organizations leave migration concerns until the end of a project. By then they are out of both money and time, and this results in rushed, poor quality migrations which can have ramifications that last for years. Migrations can be hard, and are often painful, but they don’t have to be! Real world examples and customer use cases will be presented. Let us show you how to make migrations easier.
What You’ll Learn
- Types of migration strategies
- What are the common mistakes to avoid?
- How to budget properly for your migration
