Workzone for Bitbucket Cloud Migration Success Story

Company Background: The customer is a leading financial institution that provides a wide range of financial solutions to clients worldwide. With a dedicated software development team, they heavily rely on version control systems to manage their codebase efficiently. For years, they used Bitbucket Server to host their repositories, but they realized the need for a more scalable and flexible solution.

The Challenge: The company as a whole decided to implement a Cloud first process that applied to all of their software teams as well.

Recognizing the benefits of cloud-based solutions, they decided to migrate their repositories from Bitbucket Server to Bitbucket Cloud. However, the prospect of migrating the extensive Workzone repository and project configurations, ensuring data integrity, and minimizing downtime posed significant challenges.

The Solution: Workzone came to the rescue with their new migration tool assistant specifically designed for Bitbucket Server to Bitbucket Cloud migrations. The team at Workzone worked closely with the customer to understand their unique requirements and timelines.

The migration process was divided into well-defined stages:

  1. Assessment and Planning: Workzone’s migration experts conducted a comprehensive assessment of the customers’ existing infrastructure, codebase and configurations. They collaboratively devised a detailed migration plan, addressing potential roadblocks, data dependencies, and ensuring minimal disruption to ongoing development work.
  2. Pre-Migration Setup: Workzone’s technical team assisted the customer in setting up the necessary pre-migration configurations on both Bitbucket Server and Bitbucket Cloud instances. They made sure that both systems were properly configured and ready for the migration process.
  3. Data Migration: Using the Workzone migration tool assistant, the actual data migration took place. Workzone provided step-by-step guidance on running the migration tool, and the tool’s built-in intelligence ensured a seamless transfer of Workzone settings, and associated metadata.
  4. Validation and Testing: After the migration, Workzone’s team worked closely with the customer to validate the migrated data and conduct extensive testing to ensure the integrity of the repositories and their commit history.
  5. Post-Migration Support: Workzone’s support team was readily available during and after the migration, addressing any queries or issues that arose during the transition. Their timely assistance ensured a smooth experience for the customers development team.

The Outcome: With expert guidance and support from Workzone cloud migration assistant and support team, the customer successfully migrated a substantial part of their software development team from Bitbucket Server to Bitbucket Cloud without any major disruptions. The benefits were immediately evident:

  1. Improved Performance and Scalability: By moving to Bitbucket Cloud, remote team members experienced faster access times, resulting in increased productivity and seamless collaboration across geographies.
  2. Focus on Development: The cloud-based infrastructure relieved the customers’ team from the burden of managing on-premises servers, enabling them to focus more on development and innovation.
  3. Simplified Maintenance: With Bitbucket Cloud’s managed service, routine maintenance and updates were handled by Atlassian, allowing the customer to streamline their internal operations.
  4. Enhanced Collaboration: Bitbucket Cloud’s and Workzone’s built-in collaboration features, such as pull requests reviews, automation and extensive pull request merge-checks, further improved the team’s efficiency, code quality, and product reliability.
  5. Scalability for the Future: As the customer continues to expand, Bitbucket Cloud provides the scalability they need to accommodate their growing codebase and development team.

Conclusion: Through Workzone’s migration tool assistant, the customer successfully navigated the complex migration process from Bitbucket Server to Bitbucket Cloud with ease. With Workzone’s cloud migration assistant and Workzone’s team expertise, dedication, and personalized support ensured a seamless transition, setting the stage for the customer to embrace the benefits of cloud-based development and stay at the forefront of innovation in the financial services industry.
