Option 3: hire a bug-tracker migration specialist
This is the fourth of a series about migrating bug tracking systems.
Option 3: Hand over to a consultant
Migrating a bug tracking system is obviously not something you will do often. Hopefully ( option 1) you will never have to transition.
Since you will only do this task once the cost of a messy transition is high ( days of unproductive work by developers)and it uses a skill set your team does not need
this is a good candidate for outsourcing to a specialist.
This is the Venduco business case. Venduco has the experience to convert your bug tracking system over to a modern one ( JIRA is recommended) on budget and with minimum down time.
I have the experience and track record to migrate your existing system to JIRA. I have created a JIRA bug tracking system at Trimble MGIS division; I have suffered through an inadequate bug tracking system at several companies and seen first hand the cost of a poor IT information system; I have set up JIRA bug tracking systems at 2 startups ( Modlar, plus 1 more) and I have migrated a software team using Fogbugz over to JIRA at Aranz Geo.
