What is the easiest way to upgrade Atlassian products?

What would be the easiest way to ease the upgrade of Atlassian products like JIRA and Confluence?

Currently only plugin upgrade process is simplified, upgrading the instances themselves is hard as it requires lots of manual steps for reconfiguring the configuration files.
