SharePoint Migration:

Microsoft SharePoint 2010 takes a giant leap forward from previous versions and now includes many new features and capabilities which is causing many customers to explore the options for moving to this technology. Learn the top five best practices for upgrading to SharePoint 2010 to ensure a successful deployment. We’ll show you how to upgrade from WSS 2.0, SharePoint 2003, WSS 3.0, or SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010 and SharePoint Foundation 2010. The session will also show how to handle complex upgrade scenarios, including 32-bit to 64-bit upgrades and the use of PowerShell to extend and automate migration operations. You’ll also learn how to handle granular and partial migrations and re-structuring of list, library and site content during migration and how to take advantage of new site templates in SharePoint 2010.
