Organizations across the world are racing to the cloud to leverage benefits across scalability, availability, and flexibility of workloads. For this very reason, Atlassian Cloud has been witnessing immense popularity as it enables organizations to enjoy a multitude of modern cloud features and capabilities and improve the quality and speed with which applications are being delivered. But moving workloads to Atlassian Cloud or implementing it afresh requires the expert advice and support of a qualified solution partner. Read on to learn how Addteq can help you successfully move to Atlassian Cloud! 

Why companies are moving to Atlassian Cloud

Atlassian’s cloud services have been extremely popular with organizations of all sizes looking to drive secure, sustainable, agile, and cost-effective application delivery. But the sudden and widespread demands for migration to Atlassian Cloud have primarily been due to Atlassian Server reaching EOL. While Server licenses are no longer sold, from February 2, 2024, even support for all Server products will also be not provided. This means that companies using Atlassian Server will no longer receive any support or bug fixes after 2024. 

As more and more organizations opt for a cloud-first strategy, Atlassian realized the need to sunset Server products and instead focus on developing cloud products and meet the evolving demands of a tech-savvy world. 

What migration challenges they can face

Given the pressure organizations are in to quickly migrate their Atlassian Server workloads to the cloud, most embark on the migration journey on their own – hoping that their in-house teams will lead them to a quick turnaround. Unfortunately, that is hardly the case, as migrating to the cloud can get extremely tricky. 

Here’s looking at some of the challenges they can face: 

• Planning the migration strategy, keeping the organization’s current IT infrastructure and processes, current objectives, and upcoming goals in mind can be a Herculean task. In a bid to quicken migration, many in-house teams opt for a middle ground – not realizing the repercussions of a poorly planned or rushed-up migration.  

Lack of management support is a common reason for poor and failed migrations. Since migrating to Atlassian Cloud is a time-consuming, complex, and fairly expensive process, lack of support means organizations do not have the funding or backing needed to bring the migration to successful closure. 

Data migration is also a concern that can hugely impact the journey to Atlassian Cloud. Understanding what data is currently available, what is important, and what needs to be moved requires technology expertise – which most in-house teams may not possess. 

Lack of the right tools and resources can negatively impact the journey to Atlassian Cloud. Most in-house teams are accustomed to a limited set of tools and have little or no idea of the tools needed for a successful migration to the cloud. 

Understanding and overcoming security challenges requires thorough knowledge of possible risks as well as ways to overcome them. Although in-house teams can help implement a handful of security measures, migrating to the cloud requires deep and detailed know-how of cloud security, which only a qualified and certified partner can provide. 

The challenge of plugin migration is another roadblock that tends to dilute the success rate of Atlassian Cloud migration. Although Atlassian is driving continuous efforts in ensuring all Server plugins are available in the cloud, there are many which are still in the process of being made available – knowledge of which most in-house teams might not have.
