Technical Requirements & Mapping
Full Sail Partners' technical consultants will provide your firm with the necessary background to ensure an efficient and timely installation. Our technical consultants will:

    • Review the latest hardware requirements designed to maximize Microsoft's latest operating system and SQL version
    • Strategize on deployment options to transition prior versions of Vision to Vision 7.6
    • Identify server solutions and customized reporting needs
    • Map out the steps to transition to Vision 7.6

Here are a few things to pay special attention to when migrating from Vision 5.1 to 6:

    • Vision 6.x and higher is not compatible with any prior version of Vision and cannot be installed side-by-side. That means it needs its own environment to be installed and tested.
    • Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services is utilized as the Report Management platform as of Vision 6.x and higher. Any Actuate reports in Vision 5.x will need to be rewritten.
    • A thorough review of your existing hardware specification against Deltek's new recommendations for capability and performance should be performed.
    • Microsoft® SQL 2008 R2 Reporting Services is required.  

Here are a few things to pay special attention to when migrating from Vision 6.x to 7.x:

    • Vision 7.x and higher is not compatible with any prior version of Vision and cannot be installed side-by-side. That means it needs its own environment to be installed and tested.
    • A thorough review of your existing hardware specification against Deltek's new recommendations for capability and performance should be performed.
    • Microsoft® SQL 2008 R2 Reporting Services is required. We recommend Microsoft® SQL 2012.
