Upgrade from PRPC v.6.1 SP2 to v.7
Questions pertaining to a planned PRPC v6.1 SP2 to v7.1.6 upgrade:-
1. How do we upgrade our platform? From v6.1 SP2 to v6.3 and then to v7? Alternatively, is there a guide how to upgrade from 6.1 SP2 to v7 directly? If there is no way to upgrade directly, do we need to fix everything twice - after moving to v6.3 and then after moving to v7?
Please provide us links to the most appropriate upgrade guides for our situation.
2. How do we know which part of system will break after upgrade? We have a lot of customized rules to deliver bespoke solutions. The project is not small so it's hard to find problems pre-emptively.
Could you please provide a small guide to things that may possibly break after upgrade?
3. Due to point 2 it is difficult to estimate amount of work we'll need to do to make application work after the upgrade, but we have to tell our estimates to our customer in order to start working on it.
Can you please provide any help with this too?
For this type of project evaluation, please contact your Pega Account Executive and/or Practice Lead, who will be happy to assist you further, possibly under the remit of a consulting engagement.
