Review the migration of the U.S. Department of the Interior’s agency-wide ERP from government data centers to commercial cloud-based hosting: What worked, what didn’t work, what surprised, what disappointed. In retrospect, what would the Department of the Interior do differently? The presentation will cover:

  • Making the case: Explore benefits and opportunities you can reasonably expect
  • Pitfalls and potholes: Understand problems you are likely to encounter
  • Why a pilot and a contractual escape hatch are “must-haves”
  • Crafting a workable process for SLA enforcement and service credits
  • Eyes and ears: Monitoring and managing activity for cost control and invoice validation
  • Things the department wished it had known going into the project
