While implementing enterprise resource planning applications in multisite organization environment, it is implemented first at one pilot site. After stabilization of the system at the pilot site, the system is implemented at other sites using the procedures and configuration data, and customization of the pilot site is carried out as far as possible. The rollout strategy is formulated first. Then the difference in the requirement of the business processes, interfaces, data migration, and other technical aspects of the respective sites with respect to the pilot site are studied and defined. The next step is to update the corresponding documents based on the requirement definitions. Setups of the application package are changed accordingly. Customization, interface, and data migration programs are also modified or new programs are added and validated. Go-Live operations at rollout sites are similar to those of pilot sites.
