Your Journey to the Cloud as an SAP Business One User

Now that the Biz.ONE Conference has wrapped up, it is time to continue the discussion we started in Anaheim. (Side note: Kudos to our colleagues at Eventful Conferences for taking this event to the next level!)

The timing is also quite fortunate, as ASUG kicks off a webcast series on Cloud and Cloud Culture. Not all of these sessions may be directly applicable to SAP Business One; but the three higher-level sessions should be helpful for understanding the complexities of these topics. (If you cannot attend the live sessions, they will be available on demand at the same link).

For those of you who attended my session on moving to the cloud at Biz.ONE, you will recall that I positioned the presentation as the opening comments of an onging discussion around this topic. We will continue this conversation year-round through ONE.Source, providing documents (as promised), best practice guidelines, blogs,  and more sessions to help as you make the transition fully (or in part) to a cloud-based deployment of your SAP Business One solution.

Cloud Readiness Checklist and Additional Resources

As we continue you this dicussion, we will add supporting materials to the ONE.Source Community under the Content tab.  To start, let's get the ball rolling with a Cloud Readiness Checklist; this document (from an Australia telecom provider) is designed to help you determine which workloads you should move to the cloud and your general readiness for a cloud migration.

In addition, you'll find a template that you can use to help you outline your business goals and desired capabilities, document your infrastructure, and understand the set of cloud-relevant skills in place in your organization. 

ONE.Source Cloud Readiness Checklist

Journey to the Cloud

Again, this is just the beginning of our ongoing conversations around cloud deployments, cloud computing, and the like. Stay tuned for more, particularly in July of 2018, when cloud will be our primary focus topic as part of the ONE.Source year-round curriculum. 

But you don't need to wait until July: you can ask your questions at any time in our ONE.Source Community under the Q&A tab. Not only will I do my best to answer your question, but your questions will help shape future blog topics and webcasts. Remember, you are in the driver's seat. I look forward to this ongoing roadtrip with you all.
