KQED operates a wide range of platforms, including traditional mediums like television and radio as well as innovative mobile and app-based solutions to educate, engage, and inform its audiences. It was an existing user of popular Atlassian applications and tools like Jira and Bitbucket, however it lacked the in-house expertise to transition and manage it in a cloud environment.

iTMethods leveraged the power of AWS’ Jira Migration Framework and provided implementation services to migrate KQED’s on-premise Atlassian instances to the AWS Cloud, including Jira Software, Jira Service Desk, Bamboo, Bitbucket, Crucible, and Fisheye.

What Did KQED Achieve with iTMethods on the AWS Cloud?

  • iTMethods delivered an eight-week deployment time to production, also undergoing rigorous testing to meet architecture and security compliance requirements within three months.
  • Transitioning its Atlassian workloads to the AWS Cloud enabled KQED to reduce deployment and migration costs by 50 percent and ongoing run costs, AWS usage included, by 65 percent.
  • Converting to a cloud-based infrastructure accelerated KQED’s cloud adoption journey, improving time to value for teams using Atlassian by up to three times and allowing users to migrate instances in weeks and months instead of months and years.
