While You Wait
With that said, you may be asking what you can do during the few months that you are waiting to upgrade to SharePoint 2013 from SharePoint 2007 or SharePoint 2010. How about building a governance plan or improving an outdated governance plan? You could also take some time to clean up your SharePoint data so only current and relevant data is migrated to SharePoint 2013. This time could also be used to review and update the organization of your SharePoint information to ensure a user-friendly environment in SharePoint 2013.
As you can see, there’s plenty to do between now and the expected release of SharePoint 2013, regardless of whether you are upgrading from SharePoint 2007 or SharePoint 2010, so be sure to use this time wisely so you can perform an efficient and painless upgrade when SharePoint 2013 is released.
