Zoopla wanted the benefits of bringing these additional teams into the fold without impacting productivity, as multiple instances of Jira and Confluence were hindering collaboration, making it harder to augment with the teams from the new acquisitions. Further problems included duplicated operational, license and maintenance costs.
Zoopla had previously worked with Catapult CX and reached out for advice. Catapult CX reviewed all Jira and Confluence instances across the organisations and devised a plan to migrate the companies into the strategic Zoopla Atlassian cloud account.
Using their proven approach and automation tools, Catapult CX merged the companies and their associated data one-by-one, in a series of phased migrations. Zoopla's license requirements were also reviewed, which resulted in them being moved onto one single cloud subscription.
The phased approach reduced risk and minimised the impact on users and the day-to-day running of the business. Each team were able to login to the strategic instance the next morning, see their stories and carry on working.
The teams in the migrated organisations were now able to plan and collaborate together and manage dependencies with their existing teams, which increased velocity.
The reduced management overhead and licence consolidation led to a cost saving of £54k.
