Many organizations often do not know where to start with the upgrade and end up initiating a manual assessment process. The challenge with this approach is it is expensive, inaccurate and often very time consuming. After such an assessment, many organizations may still not have answers to all the questions or be better informed to decide on the upgrade path.
