Total Data Upgrade and Data Migration

Epicor’s® Cirrus Cloud Data Upgrade/Migration

So, suppose you are still on Epicor® Vantage or Epicor® Vista version 8 of your enterprise resource planning systems and want to upgrade to Epicor® Kinetic 2021 ERP or higher. In that case, we recommend you use Epicor’s new cloud-based data migration tool, called Cirrus. However, we recommend the Cirrus cloud option only if your original implementation was performed correctly, and since the implementation, your Epicor users have entered all data correctly. You will have a great upgrade experience using the new Cirrus upgrade tool if the answer is yes.

Epicor’s® cirrus cloud data upgrade/migration.
Using the Epicor® Data Management Tool (DMT), brings over only the static data, like Customer Contacts, Customer Ship-Tos, Supplier Purchase Points, etc.

Epicor’s® Data Upgrade/Migration Utility

Another data migration alternative is the standard Epicor®, one size fits all, data migration. Suppose you are on Epicor 9 or higher. In that case, you have a clean database. Your original implementation was well-done. You have only a few customizations. Generally, your Epicor users have made complete and accurate data entries since the implementation. Using the Epicor standard formula-based data migration tool will be perfect for you. It is much less expensive than using Epicor’s Cirrus cloud option.

DMT Data Migration

Static Data Upgrade/Migration

However, if you are on Epicor Vista or Epicor Vantage version 8 or earlier, or if your last implementation was poorly performed and since that implementation, your users have not entered data entirely and/or correctly, Cirrus nor the Epicor® Data Migration Utility will fix your database during the upgrade.

No matter the version of Epicor® software you are migrating, if your database is in bad shape now, it will be just as bad after the migration. If this is the case, your best option is only to bring over static data, leaving the transactional data behind. Our recommendation is to take advantage of this opportunity, which may not come again for years, and have an experienced, capable Epicor Kinetic ERP consulting firm, like Tomerlin-ERP, correctly implement your new Epicor ERP software and then bring over your static data from your old Epicor software. With training on your new software, your staff will be able to correctly and timely enter data into your new Epicor Kinetic ERP software. As a result, you will benefit from all of the functionality you thought you had purchased many years ago.

If you ever thought your company owned the most expensive word processor on the planet and you are ready to upgrade your Epicor ERP software, let Tomerlin-ERP do it for you. You will finally have that fully functioning and relational Epicor ERP system you thought you bought years ago. With a clean, fully integrated, and adequately implemented database, your word processor days will be behind you.

Ask Tomerlin-ERP to perform an assessment of your current Epicor ERP database and to recommend the best upgrade path for you to take. We will recommend the best option for your company when you are ready to upgrade.
