What is the scope of Asana to Jira migration?

The scope of migration that we dealt with in Bondora includes the migration of all company’s functions, teams, and projects to Jira. We aimed to migrate the following teams to Jira: Software Engineering & Technology, Data, Analytics, Product, Risk, Legal, Finance, Compliance, Expansions, and Marketing.

The company had 15 years of history in Asana and therefore the amount of data that needed to be migrated to Jira is big.

Which internal team identified the need for this integration: Developers or Business?

The need for integration was identified by Engineering & Technology teams and as it is important to deal with projects we have in one tool then we decided to move the company to Jira & migrate all the data from Asana to it.

What are the key criteria for the migration project to be deemed successful?

All the internal teams are moved from Asana to Jira. Jira project setup & configuration are done according to the needs of each team. All the tickets from relevant projects in Asana migrated to Jira preserving the data in all custom fields.

What factors are critical when selecting a Vendor to work with?

When we selected a vendor for tickets/data migration from Asana to Jira we considered next points:

  • easy & understandable way to create integration between 2 tools.
  • possibility to map custom fields.
  • ability to check logs & errors if there are any.
  • opportunity to migrate attachments and comments.
  • create a hierarchy for tasks & sub-tasks when doing the migration.
