We want to upgrade our Pega application from version 7.2.2 to version 8.1. But before that we need to analyse the effort that would be involved in the upgrade and post-upgrade fixes and then make an informed decision.
1. Can we use the Estimator Tool for the same. If so, can someone share the link to download and the steps to configure. From PDN I see that this is available only for upgrade till 7.x.
3. Does anyone have experience upgrading their application from 7.x to 8.1 and the challenges faced post upgrade. Our project is in a critical state and we want to ensure that the upgrade is smooth.
