Starting October 12, 2021, Atlassian’s new pricing strategy is going to effect the Cloud products. This update includes the list prices, as well as the advantaged prices to reflect the ongoing investment our partner Atlassian makes in building a productive platform for all teams. Before the prices are updated, you can contact us now to renew your subscription - we are here to help you.
Here are the products which will be affected by the price increase. The change affects monthly and yearly subscriptions:
- Jira Software: Standard, Premium, Enterprise
- Jira Service Management: Premium, Enterprise
- Confluence: Standard, Premium, Enterprise
- Atlassian Access
If you want to see how this change affects your business specifically, you can contact us for an overview of your license costs.
But why is Atlassian increasing the prices of its most popular Cloud products now? It is simply because Atlassian heavily invests in R&D to help your teams deliver faster, collaborate better, and work more flexibly. Moreover, although Atlassian is rising the Cloud prices, the Atlassian’s Cloud products are still offered at a lower cost in comparison to its competitors.
If you are wondering what kind of investments Atlassian has made over the last year, a few examples are the new Jira template library, developing the Confluence editor and templates, adding new compliance certifications, and improving integrations between Atlassian products and marketplace apps. Or have a look at Point A: Atlassian’s program for bringing new products to life - such as Jira Work Management, Team Central. For more details about these ongoing investments, you can always contact us.
So, what is the best strategy to minimize the cost of your Atlassian products despite the increasing prices? The first possibility is that we renew your yearly subscription before October 12, 2021. You will thereby benefit from the old prices for one more year. Another option is that we renew your products for a two-year term so that you have fixed prices for a longer time. Finally, if you are on a monthly subscription, we can change your plan to a yearly one so that you can use your Atlassian products with more cost advantages. And yes, of course, you should contact us at kreuzwerker straight away to secure these benefits and our special pricing model.
We are aware that almost nobody likes price increases of their favorite products, however, we also know that they are necessary to maintain the product quality and improvements by providing our customers with comprehensive solutions at a fair price.
