Do you use Cognos?
Cognos does not have a 2010 plugin currently

What version are you going from?
03 to 10 has a bit of a learning curve 07-10 are very similar.

Well if Cognos is an application its a huge hit against 2010 as it won't work today.  in the future but last I checked they still had no release date.

The big discussion id to really get all the tie in apps and then discuss how 2010 will work with them.  Act doesnt have a version for 2010 yet either.  

The software is solid and works great, but the needs of the end user and end user tie ins to office are a big point to discuss in beta testing.

Consider including ubit (google it) as its a plugin for office 2007/2010 that provides the old 2003 menu in 2010 if you are moving from 2003..

System specification from a workstation point of view would also be worth considering as Office 2010 uses more ram and resource.

There are also problems with 2010 whereby it doesn't save template changes or default fonts

These would all be things to bring up in discussion in a testing meeting to test prior or to see how they are going before going live.

When testing not only do you need to discuss the pros but also any potential cons and learning curves of staff.

We are currently beta testing office 2010 and i request users in the test group report any/all problems/quirks regardless of how minute they may think the problems actually are as there may be knock on effects for other staff

such as the speed of opening public folders in outlook 2010 when running on an exchange 2003 environment, maybe not a big issue for the user on an individual basis but it has massive knock-on effects for other members of the organisation who use public folders a lot
