Upgrading from SPS 2003 to MOSS 2007 Beta2 TR using the gradual approach

The SharePoint Farmer's Almanac : Upgrading from SPS 2003 to MOSS 2007 Beta2 TR using the gradual approach: Warning – I have been very hesitant to post these directions. Why? Because they make it seem very simple to upgrade from 2003 to 2007. Thanks : Shane for this article!

While at the core it can be an easy process in reality there is a lot of planning and decision making you need to do before you ever sit down with this guide.

In class it is taking me hours of lecture just to present all of the options and reasoning to the students. How much time have you spent planning to this point? Here is a quick list of some of the topics we cover.
Great Comment :
Yes it works, great! In upgraded a SharePoint 2003 portal to 2007 with this guide. My test evironment contains only 2 sites, one english teamsite and one meeting site in Dutch language. After migrating only the english teamsite is working, the dutch meeting site doesnt work. Wil this upgrade only work voor ID1033 sites? Thanks in advance, From : Jabalili

Can Microsoft Dominate the Portal Market?


Aberdeen Observations and Conclusions - by : http://www.aberdeen.com/
Microsoft has a major advantage in that the average user is already familiar with its desktop applications; thus, exposing documents and data to SharePoint’s collaborative environment becomes a relatively simple function which can be performed by the end-user from within the application itself.

While the IT department may argue that SharePoint’s feature-set is somewhat limited compared with some of its rivals and cite lack of J2EE compliance as a major shortcoming, the end-user community within the organization usually can’t wait for an enterprise-wide initiative when the task at hand appears to be straightforward.

By the time IT has a solution, there are already so many Microsoft-based portals in the organization, they cannot help but embrace the technology.

This strategy is made stronger by the fact that SharePoint can be sold into a company which is dominated by a competitor’s application suite.

Even though the likes of Oracle and SAP have portal solutions, a company that is heavily invested in their technology may still find itself compelled to use the SharePoint platform for outward-facing collaboration. The reverse is generally not true.

The only serious competitor using a "grassroots" adoption strategy is JBoss which, by virtue of its unbeatably low price point, could grab market share as companies continue to embrace the open source model more broadly.

However, with its upcoming release of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, Microsoft demonstrates its commitment to continue to add functionality and to embrace open standards.
Microsoft is positioned to dominate.

Great news for US, and all the user of MOSS ( you can read all the text format PDF )

Jan Tielens' Bloggings say : <>
In SharePoint 2007 a lot of those quirks, if not all, are solved. In a series of blog posts (rss), I’m going to show off some features that will transform a YASQ into a YASR: yet another SharePoint relief. They will come in no particular order and a lot of them are already spotted on other blogs; check for example Amanda Murphy’s posts (The Beauty of SharePoint 2007 ).
I hope to come back from Seattle with a lot of YASK, no I want to say YASR.
