A new survey conducted by Software as a Service (SaaS) provider Panaya, Inc. indicates that SAP clients are moving ahead with plans to upgrade their SAP systems to SAP ERP 6.0 despite the economic crisis.

The SaaS provider included 152 European and North American SAP customers and system integrators in the survey. The results show that nearly three out of every four SAP upgrade projects are still on schedule and only 11 percent are postponed beyond 2009.

Among the companies that are moving ahead with the SAP upgrade, the most frequent reason for upgrading is ''the end of maintenance'' and 28 percent of the companies are looking to complete the project with a lower budget. The top challenges among the firms included in the survey are estimating the upgrade project/cost effort (40 percent), justifying the project budget (36 percent), and assessing the impact on existing solutions (21 percent).

A free copy of the survey results in available at the Panaya website.
