Upgrade from Microsoft SharePoint server 2007 to 2010 version

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I have a Microsoft SharePoint server 2007 installed in my computer. I’m considering of upgrading to the 2010 version as I find the 2007 version with lots of weaknesses, such as in search and being dependent with other Microsoft products. Will I encounter any problem if I upgrade to 2010 version? What are the features of the 2010 version not found in Microsoft SharePoint server 2007? Lastly, how am I going to do the upgrading? Please give me the step-by-step process.
