While our products provide the same benefits – planning, tracking, collaboration, code repository management, and more – deployment options do differ in features, functionality, and user interface.

Understanding and communicating these differences is essential to planning a successful migration, setting expectations for your stakeholders and users, and landing happily in cloud.

At a high level, customers choose to move from self-hosted to cloud because our cloud products enable them to move faster, deliver more value, grow with confidence, and future-proof their teams. There can also be cost savings, since hosting and maintaining on-premises applications can be time and resource-intensive.
