Advancing from ‘technical’ to ‘transformative’ How to unlock value from your Oracle and PeopleSoft upgrades Value Creation & ROI Business Transformation Upgrade Business Performance Upgrade Core Technology Upgrade Smart companies learn to effectively manage change. Value creation and return on investment (ROI) increase as companies advance from a core technology upgrade to a business performance upgrade, and ultimately to a business transformation upgrade. Organizations should embrace change as an opportunity to drive transformation whenever possible. • Increasing ownership costs of aging customizations and extensions • Difficulty in justifying another upgrade because previous implementation benefits were not realized • Decentralized ERP processes, but cost reduction pressures drive your organization toward shared services • The older ERP data model doesn’t provide reliable information and complex analytics to make better business decisions. Upgrade Value Assessment KPMG’s Upgrade Value Assessment (UVA), built on KPMG’s transformation framework, aligns business objectives, relevant ERP value drivers, and technical considerations to create a tailored, cost-benefit analysis-based upgrade roadmap. During the UVA, we analyze six key areas to provide a customized assessment and approach: • Current ERP environment (configuration and technical components) • ERP/business process integration • New features/value drivers • Business process improvement opportunities • Technology infrastructure improvement opportunities • Upgrade execution costs Creating business value: Upgrade now or stay the course? Internal and external drivers force companies to make difficult choices. Business requirements and expectations often must be balanced with market demands, technology challenges, compliance requirements, and available resources. For companies using older versions of Oracle’s E-Business Suite (EBS) or PeopleSoft Enterprise solutions, weighing the costs of upgrading is an important decision that can be influenced by several factors: • Premier support has ended, or is ending, on your current systems • Issues with cost effectively addressing the changes in accounting, regulation, and compliance requirements AdVAnCing frOm ‘teCHniCAl’ tO ‘trAnSfOrmAtiVe’ © 2013 KPMG LLP, a Delaware limited liability partnership and the U.S. member firm of the KPMG network of independent member firms affiliated with KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International”), a Swiss entity.

We align the business and technology aspects to create a balanced view for both sides of the organization. Value Creation Cost/Benefit $’s Upgrade Enabled Transformation Benefits UVA accelerators At the heart of our approach are KPMG’s UVA accelerators, which consist of our new features catalogs, process control catalogs, process analysis tools, and our upgrade-focused business case models. These accelerators enable us to build a comprehensive, client-specific business case to meet your objectives and help discover the value of new version capabilities. We utilize an application diagnostic tool to highlight opportunities for companies to reduce costs, increase cash flow and shorten cycle time by extracting more than 150 key business process metrics and providing a monthly business process scorecard. This tool enables fast and painless base lining of current process performance, and identifies quantifiable high-value improvement opportunities to gain return from your upgrade investment. Business case and upgrade roadmap Our business case tools map relevant value drivers to strategic, hard, soft, and ownership costs, each with its associated benefits and shortfalls. This helps you objectively evaluate and prioritize elements of the upgrade based on benefit contribution, cost, and timing. Beyond the business case, we also create an upgrade roadmap that links your upgrade path to your other transformation and operational initiatives. The roadmap helps ensure that the upgrade is compatible with your business vision and objectives – a necessar y condition for achieving long-term, sustainable ROI.
