Is it possible to move from SharePoint 2010 Enterprise to SharePoint Foundation 2013? If so, are there any obstacles that I should be aware of?

  • The additional features that are introduced in the SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Edition, might not be available at SharePoint 2013 foundation. The functionality implemented based on that features might break. – Niranjan Kulkarni Oct 21 '15 at 14:20
  • Is there a good way to compare features and to see whats currently being used vs what may be missing? – user310142 Oct 21 '15 at 15:11
  • You may go in the "site collection features" & "manage site features" of both the sites and check whatsoever features are activated or kept deactivated. – Niranjan Kulkarni Oct 21 '15 at 15:14
  • Its also not about only the features that make a difference there are many service applications too, that make a difference. Enterprise editions have lots of service applications available as compared to Foundation. – Niranjan Kulkarni Oct 21 '15 at 15:16
