Microsoft SQL Server Migration Pays Big Dividends for SAP/ERP Customers
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are the nervous system of an organization, tracking and coordinating vital operational support. They move products, place orders, assist in decision-making, track projects, and support numerous industry-specific needs. Implemented primarily in the 1980s and 1990s, most organizations have their ERP environments firmly in-place and under control. The task now turns to optimizing the management of these environments by lowering costs, improving reliability, and, for many companies, scaling for system growth. As companies approach an inflection point in their ERP system lifecycle - whether it is the need for a hardware refresh, significant capacity increase, or merger-driven database consolidation - they often re-evaluate their hardware and database choices.
