Transitioning to a new enterprise resource planning system is a complex task that requires an extended period of time to complete. Two concerns during this process are related to the institution's data integrity and having an in-depth understanding of current business processes within the institution. In regards to data integrity, the current system at NNU was known to have duplicate profiles for some individuals because their information was split between at least two distinct sources, but there are cases where the profiles really are for two different people. Resolving these conflicts requires researching both the avenues for profile creation and any possible errors stemming from manually translating handwritten documents to digital profiles. After the research, a recommendation to either merge or keep the profiles separate would be given to the final decision maker. As for understanding business processes, it requires collecting all available facts from relevant sources and developing diagram models to capture how data flows and is used throughout the system. With accurate models and an in-depth understanding of the current system, higher level decision makers will be able to decide the best approach to transitioning to the new system without breaking any business processes during the ordeal.
