Expert experience - Migration from 9.30 to 9.52

Hello, our migration plan is to upgrade to Hybrid (actually we are on Hybrid in test environment) and now we are analyzing possibilities for best migration to Codeless, but to keep our legacy code (made in last 6 years of customization)

Re: Expert experience - Migration from 9.30 to 9.52

Our upgrade (year ago) patch was following: from 9.34 non-PD to 9.34 PD and then to upgrade to 9.41. Conversion to 9.34 PD and upgrade to SM 9.41 were done back-to-back. (BAck then, SM didn't support a onestop leap from SM 9.34 non-PD to SM 9.41 PD.)  We went "full PD" and accomodated own tailoring work - also approx. 6 years work - to fit PD's logic.

A large part of our tailoring code was written in JavaScript and hosted in SM's JavaScript Library. Therefore, a large part of re-tailoring was to change JS calls from RAD commands to PD rules. Also OOB forms had to be refitted to get rid of unnecessary fields useless to our processes etc.

If possible in terms of testing and outage time needed to complete the upgrade, I recommend full PD conversion instead of hybrid version. From the point of SM developer, it's much easier to work with a "one set of mind" instead of hopping between two versions of SM. Naturally, it's mostly a business decision which way to go.
