ENTERPRISE CLOUD ROADMAP

Gone are the days of enormous on-premise ERP applications which are now turning into legacy applications. With the advent of cloud based enterprise solutions traditional on-premise ERP applications are being disrupted by the evolution of SaaS providers such as Oracle Cloud, Workday, Net-Suite, Success Factors and Salesforce.

Companies that are considering new cloud based solutions in today’s business environment often have to wrestle with the following questions:

  • What is the best approach to transform our business from on-premise applications to cloud based applications?
  • Is there a way to evaluate the business value, feasibility, and interoperability of new systems with our existing infrastructure?
  • How can we move away from managing our IT infrastructure onsite?
  • How do we reduce our total cost of ownership?

As part of Enterprise Cloud Roadmap service, we provide the following services:

  • Review existing technology footprint
  • Review and understand future business goals
  • Assess whether current technology fits the needs
  • Evaluate whether new technologies/products fit into the overall technology
  • Build a roadmap on how and what to implement to meet business goals

ENTERPRISE AUTOMATION ROADMAP

Organizations are focusing on ways to reduce technology risks at a lower cost. This is especially true when ERP applications manage end-to-end critical functions in an organization. These applications need to be updated with the latest changes, bug fixes, and regulatory changes on a frequent basis. To implement and roll-out these changes to production, businesses are turning to Test Automation.

To leverage Test Automation for validating business processes, companies need to have an effective QA strategy along with the right test automation approach to achieve the desired results. Prior to starting Test Automation, organizations need to understand and answer the following questions:

  • Which business processes need to be tested and validated?
  • How do we define Test Scenarios for validation?
  • Have we identified Test scenarios for Automation?
  • What is the best approach for Test Automation?

Ardent ERP offers Enterprise Test Automation Roadmap services to address these questions. We offer the following services:

  • Assess current QA Strategy
  • Identify business processes that need to be validated
  • Identify business processes that can be automated
  • Develop prototype of a few automation scripts
  • Identify tools and processes to implement automation and test management
  • Provide timelines, costs, resources, and organization structure to implement test automation

AI will help enable the intelligent enterprise by automating the detailed analysis of large volumes of structured and unstructured data using a linguistics-based approach.
