Today a major business organization is functioning with the help of software solutions. The aspects of migration are so vital in them as it will improve the overall performance in operations.

Misconceptions on Odoo migration
One of the main problems in the business environment of software solutions is the complete belief of certain misconceptions which will rupture the performance of the software. As with any software solutions, there are certain misconceptions and gossips regarding the migration aspects of the Odoo platform. Here I am about to describe certain of them and prove a clear knowledge on the migration aspects.
Migration is not vital
This usually happens in the case of any machines or software that the management may decide that migration or up-gradation to the newer versions are not vital. This is a blindfolded decision in the case of Odoo as the new Odoo versions will provide you with further operational capability and performance than the current version of the platform. In addition, most of the official partners of Odoo will only support you with the previous three versions of the current version. Moreover, the chances of finding a rightful Odoo service provider for the old version of Odoo are very low.
Should start operation from the beginning as data will be lost
Another misconception and wrong understanding about Odoo migration is that all the data will be lost and the operation should be started from scratch. This is not true as the Odoo migration involves up-gradation of the add ons available as well as the data available to be compatible with the new version of the platform. Therefore, the data will not be lost and you can start operating with all the functions that you have described in the previous version.
Need to train the employees again
This a misconception regarding the Odoo migration, the training should be given to the employees on the usage of the new platform. The new version of Odoo is developed from the previous platform by bringing in advancements to the existing one. Moreover, the operational functionality remains the same and more features, as well as capable options, get added up when the new version is released. However, certain new options will be new to your employees functioning with Odoo but only a minority of them which can be easily explained as they have the base knowledge of using the Odoo platform.
These are certain misconceptions regarding the migration aspects of the Odoo platform. Now we will move on to understanding what exactly is Odoo migration as many of you might not be clear on it.
