DB2 Upgrade vs Migrate

Hi to everyone 

Why IBM manual use migration word for moving DB2 from v10 to  v11. Why not manual using the word upgrade. I hope there will be strong reason for it

Upgrade vs migrate
(in response to venkata rama rajesh mallina)
Venkata,

A good question and technically I agree that DB2 V10 to V11 is an upgrade since ‘migration’ normally implies some ‘conversion’ as part of the process.

The one that makes me bristle is the replacement of ‘maintenance’ with the term ‘patch’!

Regards,
Paul Ogborne.

Upgrade vs migrate
(in response to Paul Ogborne)
I agree - a very good question. Although you have sort of answered it I
guess - you have to convert the catalog in the migration process - CATMAINT
in conversion mode and ENFM to get to new function mode. However, every
migration I've been involved in as a SysAdm/SysProg from v2.3 to v11 and
all versions in between in 3 different companies, every one has been
internally called an upgrade project. Maybe the IBMers can give the
official reason for the terminology.
Cheers,
Mick.

Upgrade vs migrate
(in response to Mick Graley)
Going from Vn to Vn+1 is a release upgrade usually accompanied by a price increase. Going from Vn CM mode to Vn NFM is a mode migration and does not have a price increase.
<span style="font-size: 16px;">
</span>
<span style="font-size: 16px;">However, in the business environment with change control and the need to schedule release or mode changes, these changes are generally called upgrades because the environment is moving forward.</span>
<span style="font-size: 16px;">
</span>
<span style="font-size: 16px;">Just my 2¢.
