Case Study : Content Creators Keep Working Through Atlassian Server Upgrade Project
A major creative content publishing client would achieve significant cost savings by consolidating its many Atlassian environments to a single Enterprise license. However, those savings were extremely vulnerable to migration success. In-house admins were unable to apply key patches and updates successfully. Mistakes would do more than put the company at risk, they could cost the company millions more.
Migrating multiple instances of Confluence and JIRA servers across a large multi-national organization to an enterprise version requires an uncommonly deep technical expertise. Each business division and even some departments had different versions and structures with unique workflows. Most depended on multiple servers for Staging, Testing, QA, and Production.
A factor of complexity for each server running Confluence and JIRA, multiplied across several business centers, increased the business's risk exponentially. Only careful attention to the unique environments and workflows and a sense of commitment to each would eliminate business disruption.
Certified Atlassian engineers at STAND 8 carefully migrated each environment to a baseline version of Atlassian. Many of the IT admins had been unable to perform updates without jeopardizing the data structures of sensitive data workflows. However, our engineering team overcame those obstacles and successfully upgraded each server across all business lines.
Our client received comprehensive Confluence and JIRA version synchronization in record time and without user interruption. Now all business units have fully optimized data storage and retrieval mechanisms. They also have unified operating environments and the advantage of the latest, most secure Confluence and JIRA staging and production servers.
The migration to a manageable, affordable single Enterprise licensed environment improved the company's financial position and positioned it for greater internal productivity.
