Get Started with System Migration

Arkturus System Migration
Starter Pack

This Starter Pack is designed for anyone about to embark on a major system migration or change.  It could be an ERP, MRP or CRM solution or any other enterprise wide update. Scenarios where it is critical not to transfer process inefficiencies into the new system and process improvements need to be identified before you migrate. That includes not missing any hidden exceptions or steps and making sure you capture every opportunity for additional automation.

It’s important to accurately identify and understand the systems and processes you are looking to transfer at the very start of the project. This de-risks vendor and solution selection, minimizes the potential for custom development ‘surprises’ and means you won’t waste time and budget migrating inefficient, broken or redundant processes.

Roles typically interested in the
System Migration Starter Pack

CIOs, CTOs, CFOs, Programme Managers, Operations Managers, ERP consultants, business transformation specialists and change managers.

What you get with your Starter Pack

Starter Packs are priced to be affordable taking into account a range of variable factors including process complexity.  The one-off fee includes over 100 hours of data scientist, data engineer and consultant time.  Contact us today for a quote.

◾ Mining of one simple business process across your business including data loading and processing.

◾ Full set of dashboards and process visualisations detailing how the process is actually operating, so you can truly understand the process before migrating it to the new system.

The Arkturus 7-Step Approach

Typically delivered within 30 days (dependent on availability and responsiveness of your team).

Step One: Plan

Project-start meeting with your key stakeholders, Arkturus project lead and data scientist.  Out of that meeting a written project charter will be signed off by all parties to agree scope, objectives, resources and timing.

Step Two: Discover

Discovery sessions with your subject matter experts and relevant technical people to capture an overview of the process and identify available data sources.

Step Three: Define

Your Arkturus data scientist defines the data requirements – this is validated by your key stakeholders and the data is extracted.

Step Four: Visualise

The data extracts are processed by the Arkturus Process Mining platform and the Arkturus Data Scientist produces initial process visualisations.

Step Five: Validate

The initial process visuals are validated with your subject matter experts / stakeholders. Any adjustments required are made by the Data Scientist.

An Insights workshop is booked five working days from this point

Step Six: Knowledge Transfer and Insight

We work with your team to understand and flesh out the key insights that align with the project objective. Training is provided on the Process Mining platform and methodology, customised to accommodate the client’s way of working. The Starter Project dashboards, interactive models and insights are presented at the Insight Workshop with your key stakeholders. Process improvements that could be made during the system migration are identified at this meeting.

Step Seven: Action

The Arkturus platform is used during the 90 day period to facilitate accurate and comprehensive documentation of requirements (incorporating process improvement opportunities), system design and test plans.

What happens after the Starter Pack?

The next steps are identified during the 90 day subscription period.  These can include: 

Continue: continue use of Arkturus to check the process implementation in the new system. This will enable you to analyse the process implementation in detail, thereby avoiding issues when you cut over to the new system.

Expand: increase the scope for Arkturus to provide more resource to assist with other project deliverables (depending on internal resource capacity).

Duplicate: run another Starter Pack project for a difference process – we don’t put a limit on how many ‘Starter Packs’ you can run.

NB: Additional resource cost and/or subscription costs to be advised
