We will discuss the migration process and what happens when, along with a discussion of why some of these changes were necessary. We'll also talk about V10 prerequisites and deprecated functions. Finally we'll talk about what you can expect from the various modes of operation during migration. The primary focus of the content of this session is on the person who plans, installs, and executes the migration process. Systems programmers and database administrators generally perform this task.
