  3. 3. 2012 SAP® Upgrade Survey Summary Upgrades can be major undertakings for companies that rely on enterprise software to run their business. Not only is the upgrade project intensive on resources (over 3,800 person days and five millions dollars for a large organization), it is also a source of risk. Any system errors introduced during the upgrade progress could be severely disruptive to the company’s operations. In its third year now, this benchmark survey was conducted by Panaya to help companies that are planning an SAP upgrade validate their planning assumptions and compare them to those of other organizations. Survey results are based on 128 responses collected from SAP customers and system integrators worldwide through a standardized online questionnaire during December 2011. Some of the key findings from this year’s survey include:  The pace of upgrade activity has remained consistently high throughout the years. Overall, 96% of the companies that run version 5.0 or earlier versions are either currently upgrading their systems or have plans for a future upgrade. The majority of these companies (57%) have either already started their upgrade or will start the project in the next 6 months.  Similarly to the 2009 results, Extended Maintenance is the clear top reason for upgrade (67%), followed by Functional Requirements (29%). There is a significant increase in the number of respondents citing legal compliance as a primary reason for upgrade (18% in 2011 vs. 9% in 2009).  Three of the top four challenges mentioned by survey respondents relate to the planning phases of the upgrade, including cost/effort estimation (39%), justifying a budget (31%), and assessing the impact on the existing solution (29%). Minimizing downtime (29%) is also a top challenge.  Upgrade duration, effort, and cost are highly correlated to the number of production users. While the median effort for organizations with 500 or fewer users is 150 person days over 12 weeks at a cost of $125,000, the median effort for organizations with over 2,500 users is 3,350 days over 31 weeks at a cost of over 1.4 million US dollars.www.panayainc.com © Panaya Inc, 2012 Page 3 |
