Hi all, I am all new to migration processes, hence, based on your experience I want you to help me in this,
One party is already using portal 6.1.5 and wants to migrate to Portal 8, what questions should I ask them to be able to define my scope of work from development point of view not administration. For example, I will ask them:
1. What new features and functionalities specific to portal 8, they want to support from this migration process
2. What are the already application deployed on their current portal environment , and if any, what are the technologies and specification used in them , on which standards they were written (JSR 168, JSR 286 or IBM), are there any iframes, remote portlets.
Can you help about what other consideration I must ask them?
I agree. Here's the link:
