Is it possible that your homegrown, highly customized ERP has outlived its usefulness? For even the most agile IT organizations, the time and cost needed to maintain limited functionalities can be too steep to justify as data, processes, and people hold deeper insights and opportunities for competitive change and company growth.
In this session, we will hear from guest speaker Liz Herbert, VP, Principal Analyst from Forrester on making a business case for a successful digital transformation journey. With an overview of industry trends and insights, Liz will discuss the role of design thinking, brownfield vs. greenfield, and cloud.
Mary Sibley, VP SAP S/4HANA Center of Excellence will then host a fireside chat and question/answer session featuring Liz.
