The COVID-19 pandemic has completely transformed operating models. Traveling to work, attending meetings in conference rooms, brainstorming product development ideas in the cafeteria, or even simple face-to-face conversations with colleagues is no longer what describes professional lives.
The business world is now depending on digital collaboration tools and virtual conferencing to carry out day-to-day operations, and the only technology that is making business operations possible (and successful) is cloud computing!
Moving to the cloud, which was seen as a critical business move until a few months ago has suddenly become every CIO’s top priority. As more and more employees work from home, Atlassian Cloud is a perfect choice for meeting the growing collaboration needs of businesses across the world.
With the new upcoming enterprise plan that supports unlimited users in the cloud, businesses opting for Atlassian Cloud can:
• Scale as required while enjoying enhanced capabilities across security, governance, data privacy, and administration.

• Provide developers isolated sandbox environments to test new features – without impacting the production environment.
Given the current situation, migrating to the cloud is probably a critical business move today.
However, when it comes to Atlassian Cloud migration, a one-size-fits-all strategy doesn’t work. Enterprises should first analyze their existing and future needs, budgets, and expertise and select the right option of cloud (Standard or Premium or Enterprise) Since no two migrations are the same, it is important for organizations to plan the right approach.
Here are 7 Atlassian Cloud migration best practices to keep in mind:
In an era of crisis, the percentage of the global workforce working from home is immense. The trend is likely to continue much after the world bounces back to normal, with reports estimating 25-30% of the workforce will be working-from-home multiple days a week by the end of 2021.
Meeting the requirements of a largely remote workforce means a quick transition to the cloud – so companies can empower employees and provide them with the tools they need to do their jobs. If you’re looking to move instances to Atlassian Cloud to cater to the demands of the growing remote workforce, it’s important to embrace these best practices to ensure your migration is timely, successful, and cost-effective.
