Legacy and ERP Modernization through BPM
How BPM can mitigate the risks of modernizing legacy systems
Modernization of legacy systems and ERP deployments is a daunting challenge facing most organizations today. The business case for modernization is strong: legacy systems slow businesses down and consume an unnecessarily large amount of money and time. IT departments focus most of their resources on maintaining legacy code and dealing with hard to change ERP or packaged/point solutions.
But, all too often, often modernization efforts take too long, run over budget, and fail to achieve the intended results. So how can businesses embarking on legacy modernization mitigate these risks?
Business Process Management (BPM) - especially with modern capabilities such as dynamic case management and analytics - can provide an ideal approach to bring IT and business together to build and deploy solutions with tangible business value.
In this webinar, Dr. Setrag Khoshafian, Vice President of BPM Technology at Pegasystems, shares over 25 years experience to explain how you can use BPM to modernize, extend, innovate, differentiate, and empower existing assets in legacy code or point solutions.
Join this webinar to:
- Identify the problems with legacy and ERP solutions and common pitfalls associated with modernizing them
- Learn how BPM – especially case management – can be used to wrap and renew ERP and/or legacy systems
- Understand the roadmap for ERP and legacy modernization and hear practical tips on how to get started
