A financial services customer, after spending two years in the discovery and planning phase for migrating to Atlassian Cloud, found themselves mired in indecision and a loss of confidence, without having initiated even a trial migration.
The customer engaged Sentify to reset the stalled cloud migration process. The aim was to not only complete the migration efficiently but also to prepare the organization for leveraging maximum value from their new cloud environment.
Stalled Migration Process: The customer’s migration efforts had been stagnant for an extended period, leading to a total loss of confidence in the feasibility of the project.
