 Hi All,

We need to migrate all the projects from RTC and RQM to VSTS. Is this possible and if yes could you please provide some help on this...?

Hi Kunal,
You should contact VSTS team for further asisstance as they should know what is the format of importing data they are supporting.

 Thanks Krzysztof for your reply..

I checked with the VSTS support and team and they gave me similar reply to check with IBM...:( 
I think this migration is not possible. I will check with IBM support team.

only Microsoft can tell you what they support. It does not make sense to ask the vendor you want to migrate away from. You have to talk to the one you want to go to. IBM support will tell you the current answer.

You can ask what export formats we support, maybe. There are different answers based on tool.
RTC: CSV for work items, just the bare files for SCM. You can use API's
RQM, there is some export tool, I believe.

And finally there will have to be some mapping to what MS supports e.g. what the concept of a work item or test case in their context is and if the data we have can be mapped.

 As Ralph says, the most IBM can do is tell you how to export the data stored in the IBM tools.   Only Microsoft can tell you how to import your data into their tools (and it's a bit of a red flag if they aren't willing or able to help you do so).
