@Elizabeth Howden These upcoming events are going to be great for learning about Atlassian Cloud and migration to Cloud. I am so excited for these events as well as the new upcoming content and resources that would guide and prepare users better to make their migration process smoother.

That's great to hear @Taranjeet Singh ! Thanks so much for participating!

Hi @Elizabeth Howden

Thanks for sharing the quick recap!!

As a person who has performed migrations from server to cloud, I have come across several issues while migrating the projects in Jira.

Surely these webinars will enhance our skills on migration to the cloud.

I have one query though, when can we expect the data which can't be migrated to the "can be migrated" section.

@Elizabeth Howden 

Earlier to what I said, here's my thought

For example, many Projects may have built several boards, filters in order to unify the view to have all issues in one place. But when we migrate that to cloud, there's no intact data that can be preserved, we need to make some changes in order those data to be migrated and then again we need to make changes in cloud.

I also had joined the "Power of Atlassian Cloud" demo yesterday!!

Surely for one thing, Cloud is path you should take moving forward to have continous business flow, without impacting and focusing important work in a team.

Improvements to Enterprise Plans will give the Confidence for Companies move to Cloud with all Security features and Compliance!!


Thoroughly enjoyed the Power of Atlassian Cloud demo

Do watch this demo if you are thinking about exploring the Atlassian Cloud platform capabilities, upcoming features and how cloud transforms your business. Also, you will get latest insight of Atlassian's cloud roadmap

Hi @Elizabeth Howden 

Here's the glimpse of the "Power of Atlassian Cloud" event hosted by my chapter and key takeaways:

  1. 80% of the Enterprise cloud workloads will shift to the cloud by 2025!
  2. Customer's are preferring to cloud in order to save cost, time, eliminate manual upgrades.
  3. What tools are available to evaluate cloud and migration? >> Free cloud migration tool, cloud migration assistants, app assessment.
  4. Cloud is going to transform the business through 5 areas: Government & controls, security & compliance, reliability & performance, productivity & apps, costs & ROI
  5. Upcoming security controls: NIST in 2022, FedRAMP moderate in 2023, HIPAA in 2023.
  6. Lastly, 70% of CTO's feel security on cloud is better.

Finally, here's the migrations month Visakhapatnam chapter's event link

Attended the "Power of Atlassian Cloud" demo today. It was so good and informative and clarified a lot of queries.

Looking forward to "Cloud Migration Demo" on Jan 19, 2022.

Great session for the Power of Atlassian Cloud demo 

I wasn't aware that there are so many tools available to assess how the migration would work.  And there is some great support from Atlassian.

@Elizabeth Howden I used a different email to login to the live session, is there a way to consolidate my corporate account with community account to get the kudos points? :)

I participated in the initial webinar and found it quite useful, at least as an introductory level. It is clear that there are a lot of benefits to cloud and yet there are still are a number of challenges for some current server users. It seems is clear that Atlassian is committed to overcome as many hurdles as possible. I also found it rather interesting about the number of cloud apps versus server apps. In my experience over the years the partner development community is producing cloud apps and I rapid rate.

After attending the first webinar and doing some looking around the Cloud Migration Center.  Atlassian has really put a lot of effort and resources in to making migrations from server to cloud smoother and easier.

I successfully migrated a couple of years ago and there are a number of resources now that weren't available then and I think this is amazing!

"Cloud Migration Demo" was a great recap of all offerings Atlassian provides. This includes organizational offers like a support team for in-depth migration questions, but also solutions like migration tooling (Jira Cloud Migration Assistant). Also the explanation on additonal resources like the Atlassian Migration Center ( was useful.

Something really true is the hint that "migration is a team sport". Something that cannot be emphasized enough.

Attended the "Cloud Migration Demo" today. 

I liked the phrase "Migrating is a team sport" and we should really try to keep all the involved teams and stakeholders informed and ready about our Cloud migration assessment, planning, and timelines.

It was really a great experience, learning a lot from this demo, and it clarified a lot of questions related to the Cloud migration planning and execution phases, and the available Cloud migration methods.
