In a previous article we explored the proven benefits of migrating to, and operating in, the Cloud. The advantages are well-documented on the web pages of service providers, in the press and in technology journals. But perhaps, surprising to some, Atlassian has been offering Cloud versions of their products for over a decade already.
The announcement in October 2020 that Atlassian would retire its server product range by February 2024, prompted a large number of clients to migrate their Atlassian applications to the SaaS versions, while some customers still hesitate or are just beginning to establish a plan for how they can do the same “when the “time comes”.
Whatever you consider as being “the right time” still requires preparation and guidance to get the most out of your migration. But most of all, it requires you to take action before “time” starts to run out, and your enterprise risks falling behind.
Help is at hand
Fortunately, customers can turn to value-added partners such as Valiantys to make the transition and migration happen sooner, rather than later, and with the desired results. The majority of new customers already start with Atlassian Cloud and reap the benefits from day one.
Those who are still hesitating may find some comfort and reassurance by listening to the experiences of other organizations. This is why, at a recent panel organized by Valiantys, we set out to learn from our customers and share their experiences of migrating to the Atlassian Cloud. Drawn from a broad range of backgrounds, and facing different business challenges, here are some of the perspectives, views and candid comments from the Cloud panel participants.
We hope they will provide precious insight into your cloud migration projects.
