Here is a summary of the session Sharon will be presenting:
Migrating or upgrading an IBM Connections instance can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Sharon has had 6 years of successful upgrades and migrations and can assist in the mind-field of information required (and also lessons learnt from some not so successful ones). From what you need to download and configure to which data and assets you must move. We will cover the pros and cons of side-by-side and in-place migrations and what to do if something should go wrong. From an iSeries Connections upgrade through to a side-by-side Oracle DB migration we should have every scenario and information to take the stress out of YOUR Connections upgrade.
