How the right partner can help ease pain points during and post-migration


Migrating to Atlassian Cloud is the way of the future! With increased investment in Cloud products, now is the perfect time to move from on-premise server installations to Atlassian Cloud. But between migrating existing products and third-party apps, choosing additional or replacement tools and keeping end users informed, there’s a lot to manage. Don’t let this complex process overwhelm you – enlist our help and make the transition to the cloud a breeze! With our expertise, you can rest assured that your migration will run smoothly. As a certified Atlassian Solution Partner, we help you navigate all the obstacles of migrating to the Atlassian Cloud, from planning the process to supplementing your in-house technical expertise and ensuring a smooth and complete knowledge transfer.

Challenge #1: Designing an effective migration plan

There are different approaches to migrating to the Cloud. Choosing the wrong method could cause problems down the road. Therefore, it’s essential to consider your business needs and decide whether to modernize or rewrite native cloud processes to reduce post-migration operating costs. You must also consider network topology, storage configuration, and security policies.

But before you begin planning your cloud migration strategy, understand your IT processes and goals. Here are some questions you should ask yourself during this phase:

  • What do you want to achieve? Are there any specific KPIs that you’re aiming for?
  • What kind of applications are you migrating?
  • How much time do you have to complete the project? Do you have enough resources available? How much downtime can you afford?
  • What kind of data do you have? How much of it is sensitive? Does it entail any regulatory compliance?

These questions can be difficult to answer, and balancing your current needs and long-term business goals is tricky. Engage with us as early as possible and we’ll review your needs and requirements and determine a clear objective to guide your migration.

Our team possesses the necessary knowledge and experience in Atlassian Cloud migrations, having worked on numerous projects. By engaging the most knowledgeable infrastructure, networking, and security experts, you can execute the migration on time and within budget while maintaining or surpassing quality standards throughout and after the process.

Challenge #3: Assessing your third-party apps

Most likely, your current solution features third-party apps that you need to assess for migration. Time and time again, these apps represent an enormous pain point for organizations that don’t have the expertise to assess whether they still need these apps or if there are equivalent Atlassian Cloud tools. Plus, determining how to migrate third-party apps means assessing compatibility requirements and anticipating conflicts that an inexperienced party may be unable to see.

How we can help:

Thanks to substantial training and previous experience, Atlassian Solution Partners are best equipped to understand your current apps, integrations, and customizations. If we don’t already know of an equivalent (or better) post-migration substitution, we will find it for you. Plus, we can tell you which native Atlassian features in cloud can replace your third-party apps altogether!

Challenge #4: Ensuring security and compliance during and post-migration

Security is always a top concern when migrating to any new platform. Businesses want to know that their data is always safe during migration and post-migration when the new system is in production mode.

As an Atlassian Solution Partner, we’ll help you with security best practices, such as setting up secure encryption keys or implementing two-factor authentication processes for access control and compliance requirements.

How we can help:

Cloud migrations pose security threats because an organization’s data is hosted outside of its control. Atlassian Solution Partners can help reduce these risks by providing security audits during migration and performing post-migration security monitoring of your environment.

We can help ensure that you have appropriate security protocols during the migration process, including data encryption at rest, encryption in transit, and access control policies. Our team can offer compliance consulting services, which ensure that your organization complies with regulatory requirements, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) standards.


It’s essential to remember that migration can be a complex process that depends on the specific environment, users, and their needs.
