Cloud migrations can be notoriously complex and technically challenging, especially when you are a large enterprise such as Thyssenkrupp Elevators & it involves a business critical ERP system. Thyssenkrupp Liften were unhappy with their existing Oracle ERP based solution. The system was expensive, costing in the region of €300,000 a year, and lacking the flexibility and support needed. A sister company had developed a bespoke ERP system, and it was suggested that adapting this alternative solution would alleviate their issues. At the same time, thyssenkrupp were in the process of transitioning to Azure and decommissioning their data centres. This provided the perfect opportunity to go straight to the cloud.
