Re: Migration to the latest version

Hi Hussain,

it is impossible to give you a fair answer.
The time depends on a lot of points:

Here are some questions:

-What is your current ppm version?
-What is your current database version?
-What is your current operating system version.
-What hardware do you currently use?
-Which modules do you use?
-Level of customisation?
-Do you have test cases available?
-What is you current JDK version?
-What authentication method do you use?
-Do you have a single-tier, mulit-tier or what environment?
-PPM and database are running on the same machine or not?
-Do you use an external web server? Which one?

And there are a lot more points to know to give you an answer to your question.
