Top 5 reasons for migrating to Jira Cloud

LinkedIn (22).jpgOne year has left until Jira Server's end-of-life. Starting on February 2, 2021, Atlassian stopped selling new licenses for Jira Server products. Full support will be ended after February 15, 2024. Big changes, but what are the reasons and advantages for customers? Let’s find out how you can benefit from migrating to Jira Cloud.

If you need some numbers, here there is a research study from Forrester:

  • Teams that migrated to the cloud typically saw ROI of 358%.
  • IT teams reassigned 50% more time to projects with greater impact, which resulted in a 95% CSAT rating.
  • With built-in insights and roadmapping on Cloud, developers may increase productivity by 20%.

Top benefits of Jira Cloud: What users say?

The best way to find out about the benefits of some products is to ask people for feedback. If you want to hear what customers that have already migrated to Cloud think, check out the quiz from Atlassian

  1. Simple to maintain 

    Jira Cloud eliminates the need for organizations to worry about maintenance, upgrades, and other technical issues. Jira Cloud is managed and supported by Atlassian, the company behind Jira, so teams can focus on their business.
  2. Fast and affordable

    Jira Cloud is hosted on highly available, scalable infrastructure, which means teams can access their projects and data from anywhere, anytime. Faster, more accessible, and more affordable systems are made possible by uptime guarantees, automatic performance improvements, and automatic scaling.
  3. More satisfied employees

    Jira Cloud is convenient and easy to use. Using the cloud gives you access to the latest developments. Cloud teams get new tools and updates as soon as they're ready instead of waiting months for the latest server updates.
  4. Higher performance 

    Jira Cloud is optimized for performance and speed, which means organizations can count on fast, reliable performance. It allows you to process large amounts of data quickly and without any delays on the user side.
  5. Less expensive

    Jira Cloud is a cost-effective solution with a lower total cost of ownership than traditional on-premises solutions. This is because organizations don't need to invest in hardware or IT infrastructure to support cloud-based technologies. In addition, Jira Cloud eliminates the need for organizations to worry about licensing, upgrades, and other costs associated with traditional solutions.

An extra benefit for Jira Cloud users

With the help of the Cloud platform, you'll also have more seamless interactions between Atlassian software and top third-party SaaS applications, facilitating teamwork and accelerating productivity. Server users can no longer buy new apps starting from February 15, 2023.

Jira's environment is highly flexible. It has almost endless possibilities for customization. And with plugins available in the Atlassian Marketplace, you can extend its options and adjust everything according to your needs. There are bunches of Jira Cloud apps with different functions.
