Atlassian Cloud Offerings Are Better Than Ever

It's not about if you're moving to the cloud, it's more about how fast you can get there. Organizations want to migrate to the cloud to take advantage of the many benefits of cloud migration, including lower total cost of ownership (TCO), reduced downtime and maintenance, decreased IT overhead, and improved performance and security. These are all vital components to staying agile, delivering exceptional customer experiences, and keeping pace with today's digital business infrastructure.

The Praecipio Cloud Migration Approach


During this phase, you'll find out what you need to prepare your environment for Atlassian Cloud. Take stock of your Atlassian footprint – including current applications, integrations, and customizations – to understand the complexity and level of effort required to migrate your instance to the cloud.

Now that you know where you are going and how to get there, it's time to start planning the technical and operational aspects of your Atlassian Cloud migration. You'll also choose your migration strategy and method, as well as establish a timeline. 

With your migration plan and timelines in place, you're ready to prep your instance and teams for the big move. You'll also want to clean up your data and build a communication plan for keeping users and key stakeholders up-to-date with migration milestones. 

Doing a test run of your Atlassian migration is a critical step to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible. This is also an opportunity to uncover any issues and determine how long the migration will take. 

It's go-time! Now is your chance to resolve any last-minute issues and carry out your migration by moving your instance over to Atlassian Cloud. You're finally on the path to brighter days!

You've made it to your final destination! Now that you have successfully migrated to the cloud, it's time to get your users onboarded and resolve any post-migration issues or questions.

Feeling Overwhelmed About Undergoing a Cloud Migration?

Cloud migrations come in all shapes and sizes, making your migration to the cloud unique. Praecipio is here to help. Whether you are focused on finishing by a certain date or have complex enterprise requirements that call for significant customization, we will assess your situation and work with you to create a path that meets your goals and leads you to a successful Atlassian Cloud migration.


Atlassian Cloud Migration Considerations

The timeline, complexity, and costs associated with your migration to the cloud will be based on a few primary factors:


This includes the size of your data, as well as the number of users. A small site with only a few gigabytes of data and under 1,000 users will be much easier to migrate than a site with hundreds of gigabytes of data and thousands of users.


This includes both the number of critical apps you have, whether they’re available in the cloud (or have alternatives), and whether they have migration pathways.


This can include custom fields, non-Atlassian integrations, custom apps, and unusual data shapes. The more customized your instance, the higher the cloud migration cost.

Data Shape

All of these factors contribute to a specific data shape. The best way to understand how these factors will influence your performance at scale in Atlassian Cloud is by collecting data and sharing it with Atlassian. This is a required process for 5K+ user migrations. 

Number of Products

The more products you have to migrate, the more complex your migration will be. For example, a Jira migration is simpler than migrating both Jira Software and Jira Service Desk.


If you are consolidating multiple sites, rather than simply migrating into a new site, this will increase complexity as data, apps, and users need to be reconciled.

User Management

A few factors can increase complexity here, including the need for Atlassian Access, the number of anonymous users, the number of inactive users, and the use of multiple identity providers.

Migration Outage Window

Every migration will likely impact system availability as data is moved. Your allowable and ideal outage window can impact how migration is approached, tested, validated, and completed.
