• How to handle Complex Teamcenter Upgrades

    Location visible to members

    Some companies will have older versions of Teamcenter in operation. Maybe they went out of maintenance for a while. Maybe they’ve just done a poor job of keeping up to date Maybe they have acquired a company with a legacy Teamcenter installation But they want to get to the latest version of Teamcenter unified. They want to get the acquired company’s data into their Teamcenter unified system. They may have junk data in the old system that they want to be rid of. They may want to move from Oracle to SQL (or vice versa) because they want to standardise their database licensing and skills across the company to save money They may want to change to a more optimised data model in the course of upgrading So they have a very complex Teamcenter upgrade challenge James Byrne will give a short talk and host an online round table discussion on strategies and approaches for delivering such an upgrade successfully.. So aim is to share thoughts and have a good interactive discussion about Complex Teamcenter Upgrades There are only 15 slots available for this online meetup because we want to keep these groups quite small so that we can have a good interactive discussion. If there’s no slots left.. don’t worry.. go on the wait list.. if there’s enough people interested, we will arrange another meetup on the same topic..
