  • Improving User Satisfaction: Looking ahead and anticipating the impact of enhanced features, increased reliability, and user-friendly access on how happy users are.

ROI Example

1.      Calculating 1-year ROI

  • Gain from migrating to cloud: $45,000 annual savings

  • One-time migration investment: $60,000

  • 1-year ROI: ($45,000 - $60,000 = -$15,000) / 60,000 = -25% ROI

2.      Calculating 3-year ROI

  • Gain from migrating to cloud: $45,000 annual savings x 3 years = $135,000

  • One-time migration investment: $60,000

  • 3-year ROI: ($135,000 - $60,000 = $75,000) / 60,000 = 125%

3.      ROI Calculating 5-year ROI

  • Gain from migrating to cloud: $45,000 annual savings x 5 years = $225,000

  • One-time migration investment: $60,000

  • 5-year ROI: ($225,000 - $60,000 = $165,000) / 60,000 = 275% ROI

In conclusion

the ROI analysis presented in this document clearly demonstrates the compelling benefits and value proposition of migrating to Atlassian Cloud. As decision-makers in the organization, it is important to recognize the long-term strategic advantages, cost savings, productivity enhancements, and security benefits that come with this migration.
