Pfizer Atlassian Jira Migration

Pfizer, Inc. is an American multinational pharmaceutical corporation headquartered in New York City, with its research headquarters in Groton, Connecticut. It is one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies by revenues. Their global portfolio includes medicines and vaccines as well as many of the world's best-known consumer health care products such as Advil, ChapStick and Centrum. 

Appnovation was able to use their unique experience and relationship gained from previous work on several Pfizer projects (including the PfizerPro Migration, converting 31 of 54 Microsites) to help the company gain better visibility and control over its Jira instances by consolidating all the separate instances that were previously owned by its vendors. 

The goal of the project was to migrate, configure, and consolidate all these separate server instances into a central cloud Jira instance for the client's digital team. Appnovation worked with Pfizer to define workflow standards and usage to ensure that the vendors will follow the client's Jira policies and generate the relevant reports required. 

Appnovation enabled the team to adopt the agile delivery methodology. This new workflow adoption allowed the delivery team to collaborate better, manage its projects more effectively, and gain more visibility into the project statuses. 

By consolidating a number of instances (with about 200-300 projects in total and thousands of users) Appnovation was able to take the number of workflows from 100 to 2.
