Why do we go for incremental upgrade rather than complete upgrade in UMT ?

Hi

Why do we go for incremental upgrade rather than complete upgrade in UMT ?

My mentor mentioned that prefer incremental upgrade always If we are upgrading from R3 to R4.

because in R3 we have 10 users and R4 we have 8users.

Do you understand ? Kindly let me know

Thanks

Ram

      Lock down - nobody can access certain parts of the reporting structure. An entire system lockdown would affect all users, whereas a department folder lockdown would only prevent access to the department folder but other users can carry on.

      Downtime - a common phrase across all web-based systems; time when entire system is unavailable to log on to.

      Scalability - the size of the system and how large it can grow. If you've got your CMC running off a small desktop in the corner of the office you cannot grow it that big compared to the ability to cluster multiple servers together. There are massive cost implications in terms of how scalable you want your system to be.
