  • Business advantage –> not just a transfer of current state to new version.Technology risk – e.g. server update that creates compatibility issues.
  • Opportunity to -> review how we are doing things-> as well as consider if we can move closer towards stnd functionality
  • Diagnostic -> to id improvement opportunities (config., change operating process, customisation, automation, integration to steamline) + determine object upgrade reqt. -> cost -> make recommendation
