According to a recent survey, Atlassian customers are choosing Cloud more than ever before. More than 90% of new customers opt for the Cloud platform, while 67% of existing customers who currently deploy Server or Data Center versions of Atlassian solutions plan to migrate to Cloud in the next year or two. The remainder of surveyed customers are still evaluating (28%), and a small percentage, just 4%, plan to stay on Data Center (the discontinuation of Server was announced last February).
Migrating to Cloud is an important decision for companies that use the Atlassian toolset. Regardless of whether the organization is large or small, this decision is driven by a broad range of reasons. For some companies, the CIO has issued a directive outlining plans for a full transition to Cloud. For others, soon-to-expire Server or Data Center licenses simply mean the timing is right. Importantly, in the same survey referenced above, customers cite benefits such as scalability, ease of management, improved productivity, reduced administrative costs, and the ability to stay up to date with new features, among other reasons for migrating to Cloud.
Whether your company is already planning a migration or is still in the evaluation stage, you’re likely to have questions. The good news is, at Isos Technology, we have answers. In “Know Before You Go: Considerations in Migrating to Atlassian Cloud,” we explore answers to common questions, including:
