Too Many Things Can Go Wrong During Implementation

Not only is data migration the highest cost in your ERP project, but approximately 70–90 percent also fail from time or budget over-runs. The typical approach is to bring all transactional data into your new system, which poses a huge risk to the larger project.

After decades of compiling customer, vendor, employee, and shareholder data, what do you do with it all? If you ignore it, you could impact how you measure and analyze performance, as well as how easily your users adopt the new system. If you migrate it all, you risk importing poor or irrelevant data and driving up costs.
