Plan and Budget For Temporary Integrations

I am working with tens of customers who are moving their human capital management apps from behind their firewalls to the cloud. When I meet such customers, I point out one very important thing to them. The process of moving from OnPremise to Cloud may be a multi-year, multi-phase process and they should plan for and budget for temporary integrations to keep their current systems going while they implement new systems.

It is a bit like building a new bridge. You cannot stop traffic on the old bridge while building the new bridge. You may even have to build some temporary roads to keep the current traffic flowing.
