Atlassian – A cloud first company

As you might have read in Atlassians service announcement – Accelerating our journey to the cloud, together, Atlassian will now focus primarily on Cloud products.

It have been in the cards for a couple of years, but it’s first now that it will really have an impact on existing customer.

This means that the Server products over the next couple of years will be out phased – The first cut is 2. February where all sale of new licenses for the server products will stop. Atlassian knows its a big step, and because of that they will make it as smooth a transition as possible, which means they still will offer support and maintenance for existing users the next couple of years.

We know its a big change for users that always have been on the server products., and you are might questioning what is best for your organization, datacenter or cloud? We are ready to help you to choose the right path.
