Deciding if Cloud Migration Is needed 

Migrating to Atlassian Cloud is a big decision and you must get it right. Deciding to move to the Atlassian cloud could depend on the readiness and requirements of your organization. Try to consider the following questions:

  • Do you have distributed teams working across different locations and time zones?
  • Do you use multiple apps and have integrations with other applications?
  • Do you want a far more secured environment than the server/data center setup?

Advantages of migrating to Atlassian cloud

Atlassian cloud gives you freedom from managing infra and provides you with scalability and security. Apps and Integrations works better on Cloud, directly contributing towards improved productivity.  Migrating to  cloud helps you manage data and apps centrally without worrying about scalability and security. Updates and maintenance are much easier and meeting global compliance requirements is not your concern once you move to Atlassian cloud.

Our Cloud Migration Process Overview

Initial Assessment and Requirement Gathering

Empyra’s cloud migration experts will do an assessment of your current implementation, data volume, apps used, and integrations. We will look for any redundant apps, duplicate user-profiles and explore room for optimization. Will deep dive into the requirements and expectations.

Impact Analysis: We will do a detailed impact study and list out the risk factors if any.

Migration Plan: We will prepare and share a detailed migration plan along with the timelines expected. It will outline apps to be migrated, data clean-up & integrations needed, and license optimization.

Development: Output from the previous 3 steps is put into action and gets the environment ready for executing a successful migration as per the customers’ requirements.

Dry Run: A dry run is done using dummy data to see if the apps and configurations and working as intended. If any issues are identified, there will be another dry run after the issues are fixed.

Actual Migration: Migration will be completed with production data followed by thorough testing by the Empyra team.

Formal UAT: At this stage, the customers do the formal UAT and report issues if any. Usually, there will not be any major issues as we will iron out problems during the dry run. However, if any issues are identified, those will be fixed on priority.

Sign off: The migration journey is completed and Empyra provides support and training as needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are the apps migrated to the cloud?

We will evaluate each marketplace app and determine which ones have a path to the Cloud on a case-by-case basis. Some apps will migrate easier than others, while some apps may not be available in the Cloud altogether. If the same app is not Cloud compatible, we will work to find a Cloud app with similar functionality and transfer your data to the new app.

Can SSO be implemented on the Cloud?

Absolutely, however, there will be an additional product necessary to facilitate this – which means added cost to your organization. Atlassian Access can be trialed for 30 days prior to purchasing, but upon Go-live will need to be procured for each unique licensed user. 

How much is it going to cost to migrate?

To estimate the migration cost, we need to understand the following: Size of the environment in question, apps in use and compatibility, and custom scripts used across the environment that will need manually reconfigured, to name a few. For each of our customers, we provide a free screen share assessment period that will assist us in providing you with a budgetary range for your migration.

How long will the migration take?

In short, there is no “one size fits all” with respect to a migration timeline. With that said, we can say that 90% of our migration projects take less than 6 months to be completely live in the new cloud environment, with little to no downtime during cutover. Each customer’s timeline will depend on a number of factors. Some of these determining factors are Environment access, security clearances, the volume of data, number of users & user clean-up, volume of apps and compatibility to the cloud, as well as scheduling and coordination between the customer and the vendor.

Should we expect any business disruption during the migration?

There won’t be any business disruptions during migration. You can refer to our Rakuten case study on how we did a zero-downtime migration and successfully completed the project.

Is there a risk of data loss?

There is no risk of data loss, Empyra will ensure a safe and smooth migration.
