Usefull links for migrating from WPS 5.x to V6.x

We are currently preparing the migration of our intranet portal from WPS version 5.1.0.4 to version 6.1.
This is a major operation, which requires a lot of work and competencies. To help for migration, here is a list of useful links I would like to share with you. I will try to update it with new links. If you know other ressources, don't hesitate

  • How did/is the job going. Have you migrated yet. And have you had any problems?

  • We have already started the migration study. Our first approach was to try migrating to v6.0.1.3.
    However, we have experienced a lot of trouble especially with WCM data migration, and with performances of the portal (also due to WCM content).
    Also, migrating to 6.0.1.4 is not really an option as the effort to upgrade to 6.1 requires also a side-by-side installation.
    So now our target is 6.1. According to IBM (and other IT partners) it seems that 6.1 really offers better performances (especially for customers using WCM tool).
    We will start a new study of 6.1 soon, so I will give more information in the next weeks...
