Migration Guide PTV xSequence Server

As PTV customer you have access to our migration guide describing how to migrate from PTV xSequence to PTV xTour Server.

PTV xTourServerAs the PTV xSequence Server is discontinued on 01.05.2013 (see blog post) we recommend to execute the necessary steps as soon as possible. Furthermore this makes sense as the sequence optimisation engine has been completely redesigned and integrated into the PTV xTour Server.

To download the Migration Guide please go to the customer area of Developer Zone, log in and visit the PTV xServer area, sub-page “Documents”.

WebinarePlease check our webinar area on regular basis, as a webinar (expected in January 2013) concerning the migration to PTV xTour Server will be offered. Of course this will also be announced on this blog and Twitter.
