What is being done?  SharePoint is being upgraded from SharePoint 2010 to the new version, SharePoint 2013.

Why is this being done? This is part of the normal IST upgrade and maintenance process. This upgrade will provide for newer features and options available in SharePoint 2013 Server (Enterprise).

When is it being done?  Saturday, January 25, 2014 between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. If there is the need to back-out of the changes, SharePoint may be down longer while a restore is done.

What is the impact to SharePoint users? SharePoint will be unavailable during this maintenance window. After the upgrade SharePoint administrators should verify that site content has been migrated and site permissions are working correctly.
