When a company grows, new needs arise especially when it comes to the internal administration and organization of technical assets. Asset Tracker for Jira by our friends at Spartez makes ITSM easy, without needing to pay for any big and expensive ERP system.
Martin Seibert often found himself thinking the books he was listening to as audiobooks could also be helpful for his colleagues or clients. So now he has started a series of blog posts where he provides short reviews of interesting (or not so interesting) books. They receive a stamp of recommendation or are relegated to the trashcan. Here’s part one.
programmieren.de is a project by //SEIBERT/MEDIA to introduce children and teens to the basics of programming. The initiative also supports digital projects in schools such as the We, RoBITs project, who will be sending their Team SOLO to the World Robot Olympiad to compete in the long-standing robot football category.
Are notice boards a thing of the past? Be it for essential company information, employee representative announcements or personal notices for social activities outside of work time, Linchpin intranet takes the capabilities of a physical notice board to a whole new level. Not only does it increase and refine reach but it also allows for a greater degree of personalization and interaction.
While meetings can be useful to come up with new ideas and alternatives, most meetings are very productive at all, and they tend to eat up employee’s valuable time. Here I make a case to reducing meetings to an absolute minimum and cultivating a culture of considerate asynchronous communication instead.
Existing intranet and wiki systems in all companies are filled with content. When it comes to launching a new Confluence system or a Confluence-based intranet such as Linchpin, many customers want their existing information to be transferred to the new environment and want a fool-proof and efficient migration strategy.
Jira is typically regarded as a technical tool. In some companies, this reputation is so widespread that the IT and software teams use the Jira intensively, while other teams avoid it completely. In this two-part article, I’m arguing why it’s worth freeing Jira from this unfair constraint and expanding its use into the company as a whole.
Technical teams in many companies work happily and successfully with Jira – but software that has a reputation for being a development system is not normally something which the Average Joe can also use for their work. When such a person starts working with Jira for the first time, they may be a little overwhelmed by the depth of the system’s many features and functions. Nevertheless, we and many of our customers use Jira with completely different teams and company departments. The advantages of Jira are not limited to just our technical teams. You can clearly see the advantages that Jira brings to all sorts of teams when you focus on its ability to be transparent, its visualizations and how it inspires collaboration rather than technical integration.
Modern software should help you keep all employees within your organization informed, no matter where they are. Unfortunately, many companies are failing when it comes to corporate communication and keeping their employees up to date with that is happening.
Although this demonstration was from several years go, it is still relevant today. And in fact, Atlassian’s expanded tool suite have only been more tightly integrated! Atlassian’s tools ensure they work well together, achieving a seamless integration of ticket and tracking systems, continuous integration servers and repository management systems.
Back in 2014, we hosted Jens Schumacher, then the group product manager for Atlassian’s development tools in Sydney for a few days. We captured this demonstration where he showed us how Jira, Stash and Bamboo work together – from issues to branches, pull requests and tests, to a successful quality-checked release of a change made to the main code base.
Let’s have a look at how Atlassian’s tools were integrated all those years ago!
