Upgrading to InfoSphere MDM v10

At such time you wish to move to InfoSphere MDM V10, you will need to upgrade existing MDM Server Foundation Usage Style entitlement to InfoSphere MDM Advanced Edition through trade-up licenses, prior to being granted access to the InfoSphere MDM v10 software. Customer extensions created on MDM Server will continue to work on InfoSphere MDM.
