Re: Every SAP upgrade always goes wrong
Pretty much the best attitude, don't be first to upgrade, but make sure you leave plenty of time and go at a point of your own choosing. Which is something else they take off you with the RISE offering - you upgrade every 3 months, when they say, and you'd better make sure you've testing everything on time.
But moving from on-premise real tin or VM to a cloudy VM really isn't that huge an undertaking (to be honest it starts to get boring after you've done a few) when compared to redoing every interface and process from scratch and then migrating and testing every record, to some other product which has its own set of features, stupidities and bugs and where you also have to retrain everyone on the brave new world.
SAP actually have a pretty good process for upgrades. The biggest problem is when people think they know better and cut corners and don't test thoroughly before they do it for real. And then find their backup process has a few issues as well....
