Whether your current deployment method is Atlassian Server or Data Center, migrating from on-premise to Atlassian Cloud is a big decision. And depending on your current set-up it can be complex. Our team is here to guide you along the journey for a seamless Cloud migration, providing expert advice and insight along the way.

Who is Atlassian Cloud right for?

When deciding whether Atlassian Cloud is the right deployment method for your organisation, it's important to look at how Atlassian tools are being used across the business.  

Cloud can often be the right solution for global businesses with widely distributed teams who need to access tools at any hour of the day. With Cloud you can align departments across your organisation, and simplify operations, to collaborate effortlessly.

Not sure if Cloud is right for your business? 

Take a look at how Data Center or a hybrid approach can help you be more flexible, customise your tools further, and have more control over your application updates and data residency. 

Five signs your business is ready for Cloud

  1. Teams are collaborating with other users in real-time
  2. Have a mix of technical and non-technical teams using your Atlassian tools
  3. Want a 'log-in and go' software as a service set-up
  4. You want to move away from managing your own equipment
  5. You use, or plan to use, a lot of other cloud based applications

Our bespoke approach to migration

  • search_reset Icon
    Discovery:

    Involves definition and confirmation of the scope of the migration (including users, projects, data, phases, etc), identifies the areas which will need further analysis (such as apps and integrations), and highlights potential problem areas to ensure they receive proper focus.

  • bug Icon
    Analysis:

    Delves deep into Atlassian application usage in the pre- and post-migration states, looking at differences in features, apps, integrations, user base considerations, and existing target environment factors. Alternatives, workarounds, and the migration path are identified, and key stakeholders are involved for visibility and decision making.

  • bug Icon
    Rationalisation:

    Implementation of all necessary pre-migration changes, including instance/data clean up and other complexity-reducing tasks. Opportunities are also typically taken at this stage to shift working practices and implement any other desired changes to yield a better post-migration state.

  • data-center Icon
    Development:

    Translates analysis phase results into a set of steps to execute the migration, then tests and iterates until ready in the development environment. Pragmatic methodology applies a combination of tools and processes developed by Adaptavist, and also provided by Atlassian and app vendors, to achieve the best fit for the needs of each migration.

  • high_five Icon
    Testing:

    Following internal tests, a system handover to agreed users further tests data and functionality. Issues are resolved as needed and users gain hands-on understanding of the new platform. Final sign-off is dependent on client agreement that the migration meets requirements.

  • target Icon
    Migration:

    Agreed migration procedure is executed using full production data at a specific time, with thorough development and testing having simplified the migration step as much as possible to limit risks and unknowns. Post migration support ensures any outstanding issues are solved, helps in user transition, and bolsters existing support capacity.
