"Change is the only constant in life,” the saying goes. And in recent weeks, you may have heard that change is coming to the Atlassian platform in the form of a new pricing structure for its core products and services starting October 3, 2019.
Here's what you need to know:
The changes affect all Server, Data Center, and Cloud products and are intended to help provide Atlassian with the resources and runway needed to continue evolving the tools your team has come to know and love, as well as develop new ones that challenge conventional ideas of how teams can work smarter and faster, together.

For a lot of people, change is stressful — especially when it impacts such a key piece of their everyday responsibilities. But change doesn't have to be a source of stress and anxiety. Atlassian Platinum Solution Partners like ServiceRocket have entire teams of Atlassian experts dedicated to helping organizations of all shapes and sizes navigate challenging situations just like these.
Important details about the upcoming change — and how to take advantage of it
The upcoming price change is also an opportunity for you to gain some cost certainty for your business. The key is to renew your existing Atlassian licenses through ServiceRocket by October 2, 2019.
Any official quote generated on or before October 2 will allow you to lock in your licenses at today's prices, as long as the quote is fulfilled within 90 calendar days. ServiceRocket can bundle numerous licenses — even in multiple currencies and with co-terminating expiration dates — into a single quote.
Even if your licenses aren't currently managed by ServiceRocket, you can still take advantage of the grace period and begin your license renewal in just 6 easy steps:
Step 1: Determine your instance type: Server, Data Center, or Cloud
Step 2: Define your user tier (will you be upgrading or downgrading?) and term, 1 or 2 years
Step 3: Provide your technical end user name and email address
Step 4: Create new technical end user names and email addresses, if applicable
Step 5: List all of the SENs of the products you wish to renew
Step 6: Authorize ServiceRocket to contact Atlassian and work on your behalf
The better news is that there are other opportunities to optimize your Atlassian spend as well. In addition to license procurement, ServiceRocket offers a comprehensive suite of Atlassian managed services, consulting, training, and implementation solutions designed to right-size any Atlassian instance for greater ROI and lower cost of ownership.
