Data center migrations are often complex and risky. These best practices will help I&O leaders invest the appropriate amount of time and money into planning, execution and testing in order to protect the business and maximize the chances of a successful data center migration.
Most successful data center migration projects share similar practices, such as expertise, preparation, management, execution, communication and business alignment. The purpose of this research is not to provide an extensive examination of each one of these practices. Rather, it is to provide a pragmatic list of best practices. This list was derived from observations of numerous Gartner clients involved in data center migration projects over the last six years.

Today, SAP’s solution portfolio looks very different and addresses different business needs than the SAP of a few years ago. Instead of primarily managing back-office enterprise resource planning (ERP) processes such as finance and the supply chain, SAP is evolving into a new type of software company that’s poised to enable digital business. Numerous acquisitions — including leading eCommerce solution hybris and cloud solutions Ariba, Concur, and SuccessFactors — and a new platform strategy based on SAP Hana, an in-memory computing solution, mean that the SAP core is positioned to support real-time digital business in the era of connected everything.

Today’s adaptive enterprises have to leverage data to remain flexible and responsive, but they need the right data.
But it isn’t easy: Many companies struggle to improve technical execution while maintaining the visibility executives need. That’s why we created CA PPM + CA Agile Central, a seamless integration of our agile-management and business-portfolio management solutions. Together, they provide unparalleled visibility into both funding and work across every level of your organization.
Several years into the app economy, business has changed. Accelerating product cycles and competitive threats now demand continuous planning. Change is constant and managing it is more important than ever. As a result, companies that for years have taken a traditional approach to managing initiatives are moving rapidly to implement agile business practices. And they’re seeing results, in the form of improved quality, faster delivery of value, reduced development costs and increased customer satisfaction.
But this transition also creates new challenges and responsibilities for the project management office (PMO). In fact, the success of the transformation often hinges on the PMO’s ability to expand the underlying concepts of the agile development methodology into a companywide ethos¬—a concept known as business agility.

This whitepaper looks into Governance, compliance, control, and audit, and how its been traditionally treated as afterthoughts, or even irritants, in the financial modules of classic “big ERP” software. It has been easy and, unfortunately, typical to ignore this topic when planning, building, and evaluating enterprise business software. Control concepts are not as urgent as transaction processing, as visible as financial reporting, or as exciting as analytics so they are almost always an afterthought. Today we can’t afford for governance to be an afterthought, and from day one Workday was built with that in mind.
