SharePoint 2013 Customization Upgrade Architecture, Design, and Procedure overview

If you have done SharePoint 2007 to 2010 upgrade, you will see the basic migration process from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 is very similar. The three major required parts to upgrade from SharePoint Foundation 2010 to SharePoint Foundation 2013 from Microsoft technet are listed here.

Based on our experience, we have extended the above procedure into the following ten major steps with specific goals for each step.  Here is the summary of each step with the goals.

Step 1 - SharePoint 2010 Farm Inventory and Reports


Step 2 - SharePoint 2010 Farm Clean Up 

Step 3 - Custom Solutions Upgrade

Step 4 - 3rd party Solutions Upgrade

Step 5 - 2013 Farm Preparation

Step 6 - Migration Automation

Step 7 - Content  Migration

Step 8 - Migration Exceptions Handling

Step 9 - Post Migration Activities

Step 10 - Optimization

Step 1 and step 2 are described in different blogs and we will dig into other step in future blogs.
