    testimonials

    They value our work

    Logo image
    Before looking for a partner, we tried to run this project internally. However, due to a lack of Atlassian SME in our internal team and resource capacity, we reached out to Deviniti to assist us. For a SaaS Provider Atlassian plays a crucial role since the whole documentation is stored in Confluence and tickets and tasks are in Jira. Therefore, migration to Atlassian Cloud was a major change across the business. Partnering with Deviniti ensured the smooth transformation, while SMEs within Deviniti’s team assist and advise us about potential changes as well as best practices. A decision to partner with Deviniti was strategic to ensure complete migration, avoid rollbacks, and allow SMEs to resolve roadblocks and blockers which would be more difficult for internal teams to resolve.

    FAQ

    Have questions? We have the answers

    • What changes is Atlassian introducing?

      In mid-October 2020, Atlassian announced that it would be withdrawing the Atlassian Server licenses. There are still Atlassian Data Center, and Atlassian Cloud licenses that you can migrate to.
      Important dates:
      02.2021:
      – End of sale of the new main Atlassian licenses in the Server version (Jira, Confluence, Crowd, Bitbucket)
      – Increase in renewal and upgrade prices for the existing Server licenses
      – Increase in Data Center license prices
      New functionalities in the Data Center license:
      Advanced Roadmaps (formerly Portfolio for Jira) will be added to Jira Software Data Center
      Team Calendars for Confluence and Analytics for Confluence will be added to the Confluence Data Center
      Insight – Asset Management and Insight Discovery will be added to Jira Service Management Data Center
      Priority Support will be available for Jira Software, Jira Service Management, Confluence, and Crowd Data Center, as well as Bitbucket Data Center 500+ users.

      We offer free Jira consultations about Atlassian licensing and are ready to answer all your questions concerning migrating to Cloud or Data Center. We also offer Atlassian migration support.

    • What’s the approximate Atlassian Jira migration cost?

      There’s no standard pricing for this type of service. The actual cost depends on the migration strategy, project complexity, the size of the instance, the number of products and apps in use, having external integrations of custom development in place, etc.
      Despite that, the Deviniti experts can assist you with optimizing both migration and license costs. We also offer dual licensing in case of larger migrations so that the two instances don’t add up.

    • Do I need to renew Atlassian license support, and how does it benefit me?

      In terms of Atlassian Server license, support renewal is not mandatory.

      However, it is worth remembering that without the current support for the Server license, you cannot access updates, free development keys for test environments, and provider support. Additionally, if you decide to renew after the deadline, you will have to pay for the outstanding period.

      The Atlassian Data Center and Cloud licenses are subscriptions, so their renewal is necessary primarily to maintain the continuity of the application. In addition, as part of the Atlassian license renewal, we receive provider support and access to updates.
