Customized Migration Strategy

Each organization’s migration needs are unique, and a one-size-fits-all approach may not suffice. DI understands this and works with you to create a tailored migration strategy. This strategy includes selecting which work processes to migrate, defining roles and responsibilities, detailing migration steps for each workload, and determining testing and user acceptance strategies.

Designing your migration strategy

A successful Cloud migration depends on an effective end-to-end migration strategy, which must include the following:

  • Selecting which work processes to migrate and how to sequence them
  • Defining roles and responsibilities
  • Detailing the required steps for each workload’s migration
  • Determining a unit testing/user acceptance testing strategy and moving to production

A solid migration strategy helps companies avoid unnecessary costs, time overheads, and internal team friction.

Before embarking on your Atlassian Cloud journey, you must assess your application’s current state and define its future state. Based on the assessment, you’ll create a plan for necessary personnel additions, delegate resources, and organize technical training. Determining the right migration strategy can be overwhelming, and sometimes the do-it-yourself approach might be counterproductive — or nearly catastrophic.

Even with a good strategy, unforeseen issues like skill mismatches, unexpected costs, and data policy compliance are bound to arise. Your team could spend hours or even days trying to resolve these issues through trial and error, leading to inflated timelines or exceeded budgets. We can help you navigate these potential bottlenecks and meet project timelines with the fewest possible resources.

Consulting with our migration experts can be a great starting point if you’re feeling inundated with high-impact decisions. We have years of experience working with companies of all different sizes. Our extensive knowledge can remove a lot of the guesswork involved in setting up a solid migration strategy.

Efficient Migration Execution

Even with a well-defined strategy, unexpected issues can arise during migration. DI’s experts closely monitor the project and preemptively address any bottlenecks, saving your team valuable time and resources. Their guidance and advice can be invaluable in ensuring a smooth and timely migration.

Data Integrity and Security

Cloud migration can introduce new challenges with maintaining data integrity and security. For example, transferring data from old systems can result in loss or corruption — especially if you’re moving large quantities. You also need to ensure that you maintain compliance post-migration.

Maintaining data integrity and security during and after migration is crucial. DI can assist in handling these challenges, reducing the risk of data loss or corruption. We can also help you ensure compliance with data security regulations in the Cloud environment. Part of our job is to test the migration strategy before executing it to find and address potential issues before they can cause damage. We can also help you create distributed solutions, allowing you to migrate data in batches to decrease the likelihood of corruption.

Creating and configuring integrations

Picking the right tools isn’t enough, however. You also need to implement and integrate them correctly. Failing to do so can cause bottlenecks and other costly operational issues down the line, so it’s crucial to configure your tooling properly before migration.

Creating and configuring integrations requires in-depth technical expertise in Atlassian Cloud tools and their interconnectivity. This expertise often includes advanced knowledge of APIs — building and using custom APIs, understanding their integration capabilities, and knowing how they interact within each unique ecosystem.

For example, to ensure your IT service management (ITSM) strategy is scalable, you’ll need to effectively establish workflows, user management processes, and data dashboards in Jira Service Management. Similarly, if you’ve determined you’ll use Confluence, you’ll need to set admin controls and processes for product changes beforehand. We can help you implement each one properly to avoid bottlenecks.


Migrating to the Atlassian Cloud is a significant step for organizations using the server-based product.
