<p>According to the Gartner group’s research vice president, Sid Nag,</p> <blockquote class="wp-block-quote is-style-h3-blockquote is-layout-flow wp-block-quote-is-layout-flow"><p><strong><em>At this point, cloud adoption is mainstream. The expectations of the outcomes associated with cloud investments therefore are also higher.</em></strong></p><p><strong><em>Adoption of next-generation solutions are almost always ‘cloud-enhanced’ solutions, meaning they build on the strengths of a cloud platform to deliver digital business capabilities. Demand for strategic cloud service outcomes signals an organizational shift toward digital business outcomes.</em></strong></p><cite>Sid Nag, Gartner Group Research Vice President</cite></blockquote> <p>We couldn’t agree more!</p> <p>With the shift to cloud focused solutions top of mind for many CIO’s and business leaders, we wanted to add our take as it relates to Atlassian’s cloud offerings.</p> <div class="wp-block-image is-style-h3-screenshot"><figure class="aligncenter size-large"><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" width="500" height="447" src="" alt="1: Scale faster and more affordably. 2: Increase profits and lower costs. 3: Improve speed and performance. 4: Increase team productivity. 5: Future-proof against competitive forces." class="wp-image-239" srcset=" 500w, 300w" sizes="(max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px"></figure></div> <h2 class="wp-block-heading">At Highway Three Solutions, we are cloud first!</h2> <div class="wp-block-columns is-layout-flex wp-container-core-columns-is-layout-1 wp-block-columns-is-layout-flex"> <div class="wp-block-column is-layout-flow wp-block-column-is-layout-flow" style="flex-basis:66.66%"> <p>Don’t get us wrong, we still love Atlassian’s server products and we realize there are cases where self-hosted servers make sense, like highly regulated industries or if you have more than 10,000 users.</p> <p>However, for the vast majority of organizations, cloud is the way to go especially with the amount of cost savings and productivity you can achieve by making the switch!</p> </div> <div class="wp-block-column is-layout-flow wp-block-column-is-layout-flow" style="flex-basis:33.33%"> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" width="275" height="275" src="" alt="" class="wp-image-241" srcset=" 275w, 150w" sizes="(max-width: 275px) 100vw, 275px"></figure> </div> </div> <p>Recently, Atlassian published the whitepaper titled: 5 Reasons to Move to the Cloud. In the paper, they identified the top five reasons to move your workflows to the cloud:</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large is-style-default"><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" width="1024" height="612" src="" alt="Iceberg graphic highlighting the real (hidden) cost of on-prem vs. cloud." class="wp-image-240" srcset=" 1024w, 300w, 768w, 1321w" sizes="(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px"></figure> <p>Ok, so we know the overall costs are much lower with cloud. But what about performance and security?</p> <p>Atlassian’s cloud solutions have you covered there too!</p> <blockquote class="wp-block-quote is-layout-flow wp-block-quote-is-layout-flow"><p><strong><em>Ask on-prem businesses why they’re hesitant to move to cloud, and the first answer you’ll likely get is security. But here’s the good news: 94% of businesses surveyed said security got better for them after moving to the cloud. The fear around security risks is, survey says, solidly out of date!</em></strong></p></blockquote> <p>From the Atlassian white paper&nbsp;<a href="/news/5-reasons-to-move-to-jira-cloud" data-type="URL" data-id="/news/5-reasons-to-move-to-jira-cloud" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">5 reasons to choose cloud</a>.</p> <p>Fill out the contact us form below and we will get in touch about how you can lower costs and improve your teams performance by migrating your Jira, Confluence and Jira Service Desk servers to the cloud and then you can start planning how you’ll use all the saved money in your budget!</p>
