The Story: Beginning & Struggle
Hear a story about a Winshuttle customer with SAP that has multiple Winshuttle scripts pulling data in and out of SAP. They also use forms and workflows to automate some of their business processes. To date, they have 10 form and workflow solutions and 50 Winshuttle scripts. Initially they focused their automation around materials but have started to focus recent efforts on customer and vendor. Their current Winshuttle environment is on Foundation 11 and they need to make a decision on going to Foundation 12 or Evolve. Below are some of the advantages and disadvantages of both.

The Story: Tipping Point & New Beginning
Migrating to Evolve will take time because it's a manual process. CPS has developed a free tool to analyze your migration effort to Evolve.
Evolve is Winshuttle's new platform and it stands to reason that this is where most of Winshuttle's time and attention will be spent when it comes to enhancements. Migrating to Evolve gives your company the option of moving off SharePoint on-prem which is no longer free starting with SharePoint 2016. On this webinar gain an in-depth understanding, from a Senior Process Developer with 15+ years SAP & Winshuttle experience, of the key things that will need to be addressed during the migration.
