Basic Information about migrating from ITG 6.0 to PPM 7.5

Hi gurus,

I am new to the forum and HP. Is there some documentation available to read up regarding migrating from 6.0 to 7.5. Could you kindly point me to any such documentation or high level areas to think about.

Sorry, I come from IBM/WebSphere background and finding a little hard to get to some documentation etc.

Thanks in advance!

It is a subject of great learning. All I can say in brief is, upgrade to 7.0 then to 7.5.

You may or may not need to do a detailed impact analysis/preparation before hand, depends on how much of customization you have.

Manuals can be accessed with the links for Self Serve Knowledge Search. Search for manuals for the level of PPM that you are researching. Upgrade guides are included in the list as are Readme files for each patch.

Forget the manuals. Get your 6.0 set up in a test environment. Then apply 7.1; test, then apply 7.5 and test.
Do the same on your production.
I'll include an attachment with detailed instructions on how I upgraded from 7.1 to 7.5. Upgrading from 6.0 to 7.1 is basically the same; we did that a few months ago, then more recently went to 7.5.
Hope this helps!

Greg,
that is an very helpful document you attached. We are in the process of upgrading and defenetelly will use it as an assitance. Although I disagre about "forgetting manuals" :)

Sabrang,

Here you can download docs and HP PPM SW:
SW: http://www11.itrc.hp.com/service/sum/downloadSelectProducts.do

Patches: http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/patches

Documents:
http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/manuals

Download all available documentation on each version: 6.0, 7.1, 7.5 since your upgrade patch would be 6.0-->7.1-->7.5

Start reading documents for each versions:
SysAdministration
Release Notes
Whats New

Upgrade your system.

We are doing it now. Take some time.

Sabrang: You're right, my comment about the documentation was a little harsh, but I see you ascertain my meaning: reading the manuals needs to be tempered with a good degree of common sense and a certain amount of experience. Our upgrades go smoothly now because I've done it so many times; our first version of PPM was Kintana 4.5!
