Participate in the Enterprise System upgrade survey!
Dear Madam / Sir,
My name is Gerald Feldman a PhD researcher at Birmingham City University (BCU). Our research group is focusing on mechanisms to streamline Enterprise Systems (e.g. ERP, CRM, HRM) upgrading, by understanding the upgrade decision making process.
I am writing to request access to UK Oracle User Group members, as I believe their opinions and experience will be very valuable and provide insights of how organisations decide to upgrade their systems. The outcome of this research will be made available to the survey participants, the output is anticipated to:
- Identify the reasons that influence the upgrade decision making process.
- Establish the roadmap a generalised view of Enterprise Systems upgrading decision making process
- Formulate a decision making tool based on the above outcome in order to streamlining the upgrade decision making process.
I kindly request your assistance to get me in touch with the user group members, so that I can appeal to them to participate in the Enterprise System upgrade survey. The survey should take less than 20 minutes to complete, with the ability to save partial answers which you can complete at a different time.
The survey is accessible from http://esupgradessurvey.limequery.com/index.php/86798/lang-en
We envision that the output of this research will benefit organisation who planning on upgrading their Enterprise Systems, as it will outline the impacts and added-value for upgrading.
With kind regards,
