A modern, collaborative social intranet to replace a classic, static intranet brings many changes with it but also presupposes a number of changes to ensure its success. One key aspect is transparency as actively fostered by Atlassian Confluence and Linchpin.
With //SEIBERT/MEDIA’s support, the “We, RoBITs” team has had great success in qualifying for the World Robot Olympiad final!
As we have become deeply involved with Google as a company, and we are now an official G Suite reseller, my openness towards alternatives to Apple has increased. Now it’s the Google Pixelbook’s turn to compete with my MacBook. I wrote down my experiences in chronological order – a Chromebook experiment diary.
Young programmers are the future of the industry! We donated brand-new notebooks to the students of Rudolf-Dietz Elementary so they now have their very own computer lab to explore the world of computer technology.
Companies are up to their necks in internal emails and they want a system that will alleviate the clutter. The Atlassian systems promise exactly that: to reduce the amount of internal email. However, at the same time, Confluence, Jira & Co. are not exactly squeamish when it comes to sending automated email notifications. At first glance, this may seem to be contradictory, but in fact, the questions above miss the main point, because it is not about fewer emails, but instead about less work time spent on email.
We invite other Atlassian Partners to visit us in Wiesbaden to get to know our teams, our products and our working methods and to collaborate with us. Christian Lane from Praecipio accepted our invitation with pleasure, and was our guest for a few days.
On my way to the Google Cloud Summit in Munich on December 6, 2017, I jotted down some thoughts about both Google and Microsoft. Partly to take stock and partly to work out a convincing way to explain to companies why Microsoft isn’t the only – nor the best – option, and that they should instead consider working with Google and G Suite.
When a developer uses Google’s leading technology to create a personalized intranet – wouldn’t that be immediately superior to Atlassian’s relatively sluggish technology? You’d think so, but this was not the case! And our customers agree – Linchpin is still the central integration point for all of these new cloud services.
If I were to summarize the GDPR, I would do it this way: If the customer explicitly consents, (almost) everything can be done. Explain properly, ask questions and wait for approval. That’s what companies have to do. The reactions from the companies who contact me as a customer or user make me partly believe that it is not only American entrepreneurs who don’t care what your customers want. The question is never asked. Neither consent, nor rejection is given.
