Title:
Upgrading to Portal v8, and What's new in Portal governance.
Stream:
Social and Portal SIG (1)
Speakers:
David Strachan
Abstract:
In this session, users will learn the basics behind upgrading to WebSphere Portal and Web Content Manager version 8.0.
We will cover the overall architecture, planning, and best practices when planning for this activity.
We will also discuss the differences between migrating from a 6.1 environment vs. a 7.0 environment, as well as some techniques to consider if you're still on older versions than that.
Additionally, we'll look at how v8 is likely to affect your governance processes, as you become able to delegate more control to non-technical users.
