‘Twas the Night Before Go-Live

‘Twas the night before Go-Live, when all through the suite
each expert was typing, refusing defeat.
SAP HR installed by consultants with care
who configured the system with skill and great flare.

The clients were nestled all snug in their beds,
while thoughts of best practices danced in their heads.
Winnie and Joe with their strategic chit chat,
had just settled down for a well deserved nap.

When out on the server there arose such a clatter,
Joe sprang to his desk to see what was the matter.
Away to the Portal he flew like a flash,
tore through his password and saw such panache.

The code in the lines of the new written page,
the luster of Self Service to objects there staged
when, what to his wondering eyes should appear
but a perfect SAP HR system competitors will fear.

That much beloved program had shown him the key
And he knew in that moment, it was SAP.
With deep skillful knowledge, AspireHR experts they came
as he whistled and shouted team leads by name:

Now PA, Now TM
Now Payroll, Now Org
On LSO, on PM
On Benefits and more
To the top of the IMG!
To the end the call!
Now configure away! configure away!
configure away all!

As conversions before the final testing’s they fly
and meet with no obstacle, on up to the sky
so up toward to the Go-Live, these experts they flew
with their screens full of names, and maybe yours too.

And then, first a whisper, he heard from his troop
the shouting and cheering of each specialized group.
As he drew in his people, then turnning around
down the hallway, Joe with crew came with a bound.

He was dressed in burnt orange, from his head to his feet
while updating his Facebook and Yammer and Tweet
a bundle of AspireHR software he had flung in a sack,
and he looked like a soldier just home from Iraq.

His clients – how they cheered! Their laughter, how merry!
Their project on budget, the result a cherry.
The work of the experts all sealed up with a bow
the page of complaints as bare as the snow.

“What a great gang you are!” said Joe with a cheer,
“This project is perfect, you have truly no peer.”
He had a glad face and a heart full of joy,
not one was prouder than that Missouri boy.

Those folks at Aspire have clearly earned praise,
Without their hard work you’d go back to old ways
of manual HR systems causing manual forms again and again,
such duplicate data is surely a sin.

HR is vital to a healthy business
to ignore the problem will make you remiss.
With experts like mine, there is no confusion
good software, good people – the crowning solution.

He sprang from his desk, as his team blew a whistle,
And away Joe H flew, like a ground to air missile
But we heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight,
“Happy Go-Live to all! And to all a good night!”
