In JIRA, companies manage their projects, epics, user stories and detailed tasks. Requirements are translated into concrete tickets that can be assigned and processed. Dependencies are shown here. Project progress is measured and evaluated with JIRA.
Confluence has also had tasks and tasks lists for several years. On this topic, someone contacted us a while ago on Twitter:
I wonder when you should use Confluence’s task lists instead of JIRA?
Immediately after the Atlassian Summit Europe in Barcelona, an Atlassian employee visited us in Wiesbaden: John Wetenhall (Twitter, LinkedIn) is the Strategy and Operations Manager for Confluence. Of course, we took advantage of this opportunity, and had John join us in a couple of webinars.
There’s a trend that’s moving away from being always on and always available. Some companies even go so far as to prohibit checking email on smartphones outside of working hours and on weekends.
Nowadays, there are more enterprise software providers coming out with mobile apps. Would this constant email accessibility bring on additional stress? And employees aren’t just getting email. They also have to deal with work-related questions that could come up at any time via push notifications.
I’d like to share a few of my own thoughts and experiences.
Confluence and JIRA are definitely great products in their own right. However, there are several great reasons to use them together. Software development teams already using JIRA will benefit from using Confluence as well.
Right after the Atlassian Summit Europe has finished in Barcelona, we have a leading Atlassian employee as our guest in Wiesbaden: John Wetenhall. We have a lot planned – join us for a webinar on 9 May, arrange a private discussion on the 8 or 9 May, or drop in to the Rhein-Main Atlassian user group on the 9 May.
It’s impossible to reproduce such an abundance of news and information from an Atlassian summit in a compact blog post (and immediately after the end of the keynote). In this post, we want to focus on the most important news regarding the Atlassian products.
We are at Atlassian Summit Europe 2017 in Barcelona with a large team of 17 to present draw.io for Confluence, Linchpin and Codeyard, and bring you the freshest news, directly from the source. Keep an eye on our live blog for news, announcements, rumors, interviews and more.
In nearly every type of company, there are employees who are on the road often and can’t regularly be in the office. This can include sales representatives, consultants, commercial workers, and more. Individuals who need to be mobile have one thing in common: they’re usually on their own when it comes to staying up to date with company information. And information doesn’t just flow one way. The mobile app for Linchpin intranets helps such employees in real-life situations get necessary information quickly and easily. This can benefit the entire organization in several ways.
Our Confluence-based intranet suite Linchpin is ideal for companies that are distributed over several, or even a very large number of sites. …
In many companies today, teams are distributed widely. Nevertheless, communication is still essential to quickly deliver good project results. This is where enterprise chat tools come in, and Atlassian’s HipChat is one such tool.
