Moving beyond Atlassian Server: Your options explained

With Atlassian announcing changes in Server licenses for Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket and more, now’s the time to carefully consider the next steps for your business. We’re here to help.

Atlassian Server, Data Center or Cloud

What’s next for your Jira Server platform?

At the end of 2020, Atlassian announced that as of February 2021, it would no longer sell new Server licenses.

For current Server customers, support will end in February 2024, and license and plug-in user tier changes were no longer possible from February 2022.

This cloud-first focus opens the door to new possibilities for collaboration and innovation, while raising important questions that require careful consideration.

Is now the time to move fully to Atlassian Cloud? Could Data Center—or a hybrid model—be the right option? How will your add-on apps be affected?

We understand that there’s no one-size-fits-all solution, and have created this page to arm you with all the information you need to make the best choice for your organisation.

As always, our experts are on hand to help—from migration strategies to Atlassian licensing and everything in between. Get in touch with us directly to explore your options in more detail.

Atlassian Cloud Migration

If you’re thinking of migrating to Atlassian Cloud, it’s important to come up with a strategy that’s sound for your business—and your users.

That said, migrating Atlassian tools to the cloud, isn’t a decision to be taken lightly. We recognise customers’ concerns, particularly around security, add-on app feature parity and integrations, and are here to provide clarity guidance on your best next steps.

With a tried and tested, best practice approach to Atlassian tool migration, we’ve helped some of the world’s leading organisations move to the cloud—guiding them every step of the way.
