You know what’s hard to stomach? Upgrade costs that are almost as much as the cost of initial deployment. Whether you are upgrading ERP, CRM, supply chain management systems, or any other major enterprise software product, costs are skyrocketing. Gartner Group1 finds that enterprise software upgrades can run as much as 30 percent of the original software installation price. Companies are seriously considering whether it’s worth it. What is the cost of all resources dedicated to executing a clean rollout? Whether it’s lost productivity during training or consultants needed to figure out version compatibility issues, it’s important to tally the true cost of the upgrade. Then it’s time to ask the question: if new enhancements are relatively minor, it is worth it to update?
