Up into the Atlassian Cloud – with Seibert Media!

This is how we support you with your cloud migration

Do you want to move to the cloud? Seibert Media can accompany you! Depending on whether you are just starting out or are already advanced in your considerations, we offer you tailor-made support. To make your cloud migration as smooth as possible.

This is what you can expect when moving to the cloud with Seibert Media:

At the beginning, we will carry out a cloud app assessment to check your cloud compatibility and to make an initial cost estimate. Together we will discuss which migration scenarios are suitable for you and as soon as you decide to migrate with Seibert Media, we will go through the four migration phases together up to the launch.

  • What alternatives are there if an app is not available?

Analyze Atlassian Apps

    • Review how each app is being used: are they all being used for their intended purpose?
    • How many people use the apps?
    • Do multiple apps serve the same purpose?
  • Are there apps that definitely cannot be done without in the cloud?

Review of the current user management process:

  • Are active directories already in use?
  • Identification of all relevant users
  • Determining the need for Atlassian Access

Analyze User Managements

  • Is an Active Directory already in use and if so, which one?
  • Specify the number of users you want to migrate to the cloud
  • Find out if there are users who only need Reading Access (Read-only through IP Allowlisting)
  • Internal needs assessment for Atlassian Access as a central user management system and as a tool for increased security of all Atlassian cloud products.

Analyze Data

    • system integrity
    • Custom Fields

Analyze Data

Assessment of resources

We check where and when we can best support you.

The prerequisite for carrying out the assessment is the following completed questionnaire. Please copy or download the document:

Questionnaire (Excel file)   Questionnaire (PDF file)  

Based on the results of the assessment, we will then review your options.

Migration scenarios

Depending on the size of your business (measured in users), your options are:

Lift & Shift

Suitable for: small medium-sized companies with low complexity = less than 2,000 users

How it works: Everything is migrated at once.

Optimize & Shift

Suitable for: Customers with medium complexity = 2,000-10,000 users

This is how it works: Seibert Media only migrates necessary data and deletes inactive users.


Suitable for: large companies with high complexity = more than 10,000 users

How it works: In this scenario, your data is migrated in stages to minimize downtime and optimize instances during the migration

Have you already decided to move to the Atlassian Cloud?

We will be happy to assist you with your change. Whether performing the complete technical migration of your Confluence or Jira instance or just a cloud transition workshop - you have the choice of how intensively we should support you with the migration.

Do you want to first test the Atlassian Cloud?
