One of the top critical success factors to any SAP implementation is a successful data migration from the customer’s legacy systems into SAP. It is an inherently high-risk factor because SAP requires its master data and open transactional data to be properly matched and attributed in order to function and a translation must occur from a customer’s legacy system in order to map the data correctly. In addition, Master Data should be organized in a way that can support Reporting and Analytics so that customers can truly harvest the value of their data to drive business results. Applexus has developed a comprehensive data migration approach embedded into our proprietary agile SAP implementation methodology “RunningStart” to reduce the risk and streamline this workstream. Our SAP Data Migration Delivery services solution includes robotic process automation and prebuilt content with state-of-the-art tools like SAP Data Services, Information Steward and IRPA. In addition, we leverage a data factory approach leveraging our offshore migration experts in a Center of Excellence model enabling us to deliver these services with robust quality processes in the most cost-effective manor.
Industry studies consistently show that the leading causes of ERP projects failing is lack of user acceptance. At Applexus, we believe that one of the top keys for user acceptance is the quality of the solution in meeting the user’s needs both functionally and technically.

To ensure project success, we have built our Quality Engineering and Testing Services (QE&T) into every step of our agile delivery process “RunningStart”. With our services embedded from the project prep phase through user acceptance testing and go-live, our Quality Services are designed to reduce the overall project timeline by eliminating re-work and solving quality issues earlier in the project than traditional testing approaches.
