Automation Consultants Becomes Official Atlassian Specialized Partner in Cloud

Automation Consultants is pleased to announce a milestone achievement: in recognition of nearly two decades of commitment to delivering smooth migrations, the UK-based consultancy proudly became an official Atlassian Cloud Specialized Partner on 23 May 2023.

The Atlassian Cloud Specialization Program recognizes partners deeply committed to a solution practice, consistently delivering stellar services that boost customer success and accelerating the journey to Cloud value.

As a recognized Cloud Specialized Partner, Automation Consultants has demonstrated significant expertise in managing large-scale migrations to the Atlassian Cloud for clients across the globe.

Francis Miers, CEO at Automation Consultants, commented, “This specialization cements our position as leaders in this field – and is testament to the skill and commitment of our team. We take great pride in not only ensuring high customer satisfaction and delivering impactful Cloud-related services, but also minimizing data loss and avoiding unplanned outages.

“Our team demonstrates expertise across Cloud assessment, custom apps, data migration, end-to-end migration, and governance, and have the tools and knowledge to support even the most intricate migration projects. Ultimately, we make complex migrations seamless.”

With the newly-awarded Cloud Specialization, Automation Consultants offers a wealth of experience in managing migration projects, from readiness and implementation stages, through to active oversight and execution. The consultancy delivers a suite of bespoke services tailored to each client’s unique needs–all now underpinned by an industry-recognized specialization:

– Training for teams

– Managing product integrations and customizations

– Streamlining process automation

– Addressing security needs

– Navigating enterprise-level complexities

The consultancy’s expertise in these areas has received notable recognition from clients as well. Global Logistics, one of its clients, expressed appreciation by saying, “A big thank you to all involved in the Atlassian Migration. We’ve now completed the migration with no major setbacks on what has been an epic and complex 7 day migration.”

Visual Collaborative Platform is another happy client, who said, “Automation Consultants provided assistance with our migration of Jira Software (~1100 users) from Server to the Atlassian Cloud. Due to the size and complexity of the instance, the migration was highly non-trivial. Automation Consultants supported with overall project management, stakeholder communication, technical challenges, and production migration.

“The migration is deemed to be highly successful: it was well prepared, quick and with minimal disruption to our work.”

In a world where Cloud computing is a necessity, it has never been more important for organizations to have a seasoned, reliable partner by their side. With Atlassian’s Server support ending in February 2024, migrating to the Cloud has become a priority for many businesses. This process can be daunting, but Automation Consultants can support clients with its proven BeeCloud methodology.

BeeCloud is an optimized approach for migrating complex applications, delivering a wholesale transition of data, configurations, and add-ons.

Automation Consultants recently supported an international specialty insurer using BeeCloud. The client sought a Cloud-based workflow solution to track tasks, automate processes, and improve efficiency. The Automation Consultants team integrated Jira and Confluence with Slack, data warehouses, custom-built platforms, and PowerBI. This streamlined the client’s business processes and automated notifications and task updates, effectively creating a ‘single source of truth’ for their data.

Following this successful project, the client’s system now hosts:

– 380 daily users on average

– Over 60-self-serve dashboards

– 19 production projects containing around 600,000+ issues.

– 45 specific business processes are covered, across 8 major business functions

– The above is facilitated by 250 automation rules

– Jira was integrated with a total of 13 external systems

– Approximately 160 unique Groovy ScriptRunner scripts and 65 unique AWS scripts/endpoints were created

Whilst this recognition is momentous, this isn’t the first time that Automation Consultants has received significant recognition from Atlassian. The consultancy was awarded the Business Teams award in 2020, and was shortlisted for the Work Management for All Solutions award in 2022. In addition, the business’ product arm, AppFox, achieved the App Innovator award in 2022.
