We're thrilled to have experts from Adaptavist and Revyz here to share their insights.

Stu Lees (Revyz): Over the last six months, we've noticed a significant interest in cloud migration strategies within the community. Many are contemplating whether to move to the cloud and how it affects their operations post-migration.

Webinar Transcript Summary

The following is a system generated transcript of the webinar

Stu Lees (Revyz): In the last six months and in community discussions, there's been a lot of focus on moving to the cloud. What are people really asking about?

Jean-Philippe (Adaptavist): We realized not many were thinking ahead about what happens after moving to the cloud for Jira and Confluence. It's crucial to consider the security of your data and where it's hosted to ensure compliance and operational efficiency post-migration.

Vish Reddy (Revyz): Exactly, JP. With the cloud, it's not just about migration; it's about understanding the implications for data security and how operational tasks change. We need to ensure teams are prepared for these changes and understand the responsibilities that come with a cloud environment.

Jean-Philippe (Adaptavist): One major concern everyone has is data residency and security. It's not just about moving data to the cloud but knowing where it resides and ensuring it meets regulatory and compliance requirements.

Stu Lees (Revyz): And with the customization and flexibility that Jira and Confluence offer, how do you see this affecting migrations?

Jean-Philippe (Adaptavist): That's a big challenge. The customizable nature of these tools means that migrations need to be carefully planned to ensure that workflows, integrations, and customizations are preserved or appropriately adapted to the cloud environment.

Vish Reddy (Revyz): On top of that, the operational impact is significant. How teams interact with the software changes, and there's a need to manage these changes effectively. Training, communication, and a clear understanding of the new cloud environment are essential.

Jean-Philippe (Adaptavist): Absolutely. And post-migration, there's a whole new set of considerations. It's not just about the technical migration but how you manage your data, maintain security, and adapt your operational models in the cloud.

Stu Lees (Revyz): It sounds like leveraging community and partner resources is key to navigating these challenges.

Vish Reddy (Revyz): Definitely. The support from Atlassian and partners like Adaptavist and Revyz is invaluable. There's a wealth of knowledge and tools available to help organizations through this transition.

Stu Lees (Revyz): Thank you both for sharing your insights. It's clear that while cloud migration presents challenges, with the right planning, resources, and support, organizations can navigate this transition successfully.
