Whats the future of Jira Datacenter?

I see that there are many announcements related to the new tools like :

Jira work management

Jira Product Discovery


Team Control.

Enterprise cloud will have more feature and updates in coming days.

As we are on Jira Datacenter so just curious about what next for datacenter


Hi @Sagar Mahajan , you can check the Atlassian roadmap for Datacenter in this link:

Thanks @Carlos Garcia Navarro i have gone through the link, looks like no new major feature release for Jira datacenter in upcoming months mostly on security, compliance etc.

What about the Atlassain tool's customers who never wants to go on cloud? 

Dirk Ronsmans Community Leader May 03, 2021

Well it's a very controversial topic, eventually companies will need to decide on why they don't want to go to the cloud (data protection, confidentiality, trust,..) and look towards the tools that support their own vision.

I always ask clients "why don't you want to go to Cloud" and the answers I usually get are a bit vague or mainly from a point of fear. 

I'm sure Datacenter will remain available for the time to come (years) but you will miss out on new features and functionalities.

The funny thing is that for things like an Office365 or other work management tools the Cloud is often the only solution that is offered and people don't worry about that. I feel that the shift from Server to Cloud is now what causes the backlash.

"It's always easier to give something than to take something away"

So while perhaps not what you want to hear (and also my full personal opinion on the subject), for the near future you can go to Datacenter and see how Cloud evolves. Should it come to a point that you are no longer happy with Datacenter and Cloud is not an option, you'll simply have to do a new tool selection and seek out a took that does fit your requirements.

Keep in mind tho that this strategy of Cloud first/only is not unique to Atlassian, all major vendors will provide either only a Cloud solution or are in a very similar position as Atlassian where they are moving towards Cloud.

Hi @Dirk Ronsmans  Thanks for the explanation, it helps ! , the most common reason to not go on cloud is that you mentioned data protection, confidentiality. 

Dirk Ronsmans Community Leader May 03, 2021

That's the thing. 

At one point in time you'll have to trust the companies you work with. You have contracts with them which will define what happens to your data en how it will be managed.

Let's say I have my HR Payroll excel sheet and it syncs to my onedrive as a backup. Do you think anybody really thinks about that? Probably not because it's a seamless sync and it doesn't feel like a "cloud" solution.

In our day to day lives we are all happy to throw all our information on social media and other platforms without giving it a second thought. But when it comes to company data, suddenly our weekly restaurant menu has to be safeguarded like it contains the nuclear launch codes :)

Perspective is everything!

If you (or anyone interested in this topic) has an Team 2021 All Access Pass, there's a great talk by Greg Warner about asking the hard questions to get past "this is how we've always done it.
