Data Center, Atlassian Stack, and professional services (TAM and Premier Support) remain unchanged.

This price change will go into effect on October 12. From that date all new orders and quotes will bear the new prices independently of whether they are for new licenses, renewals, or upgrades.


The hidden advantages

Customers that act promptly may turn this price surge to their advantage. But to do so, they need to first understand Atlassian licensing policies properly, and then take the right course of action.

Of course, we’re aware very few customers can keep up with the pricing policies of all their vendors – that’s precisely why we’d like to offer you 6 tips that will shortcut your way to informed decision making and minimized Atlassian-related costs.

1. Tell apart Atlassian Products from Apps

It’s REALLY important to discern that the price changes only affect the Atlassian products and apps listed in the above table. Marketplace apps are not governed by the policy – but their makers may choose to follow Atlassian and modify their prices as well. 

2. Move renewals forward

If there are pending or upcoming renewals, it’s time to act fast and get a quote before the new prices enter into force. Properly planned, this doesn’t necessarily mean rushing things: you might take the decision now (meaning before October 12) and launch the renewal on early 2019. That may give you room to allocate the expense to 2019. Eureka!

 

3. Renew for three years

Who knows how long the new prices will last? Renew your entire stack for up to three years at the current price and set it in stone in your expenses.

 

4. Upgrade to Data Center

Taking the price surge, some Data Center user tiers are cheaper or comparable to Server. Now is the ideal time to go for Data Center.

 

5. Buy new licenses sooner

If you’re considering buying either Atlassian products for the first time or additional instances, this is the time. Anything you do after October 12 will cost you up to a 25% more.

 

6. Realizar la operación en las fechas correctas

Again, watch the calendar very closely and don’t let days slip through your fingers. These are the dates to be considered as per Atlassian’s official e-mail, dated September 12: 

October 11, 2018 Last date to get Atlassian orders or quotes with the current prices
October 12, 2018 New prices will go into effect. Any new order or quote will bear the new prices
January 9, 2019 Since Atlassian orders and quotes have a validity of 90 days, this is the deadline to execute them with prices prior to October 12
