In the world of SharePoint, thereare no easy upgrades, no simple migrations. In today's SharePoint enterprises,there are a lot of variables and considerations one most account for, but formost, the challenge can be measured and often, successfully completed. When itcomes to migrations there are a lot of great products, books, consultingagencies and more, but what if you are on the fringe or you want to go at italone, what can you do? What if you are stuck in 2003 or want to migrate fromDocumentum, AS400 or something even further out? What if the challenge isn'ttechnical so much as it is getting past the planning phase? What if yourmigration is.... impossible?

When it comes to SharePoint, there are endless details thatone must account for. Come join me as I share some of the lessons I've learnand discuss some of the many technical and non-technical challenges I havefaced and how I worked with clients and the SharePoint community to resolvedthem.
