In the first article on the differences between a company’s intranet and website, we addressed organizational questions and described how these systems differ conceptually. From a technical perspective as well, intranet and web projects must be approached differently to meet the various needs of the user groups.
You do not need to be an Internet professional to recognize the basic difference between a company’s intranet and its online presence. An intranet, the internal system, is protected against external access and contains non-public information. Online content, however, can be accessed by anyone. If you take a closer look, it’s clear that many different aspects must be considered and play an important role. We will therefore turn our attention in these two articles to the question of how to differentiate between an intranet and a website. First, we will look at the organizational aspects before dealing with the technical aspects in the following article.
You are a teacher or student at a university and want to gain practical experience working with Atlassian tools? Atlassian offers you the opportunity to use numerous products with the Classroom License – free of charge. All you have to do is submit an application. Why use Atlassian tools in your project? For budding software developers in particular, using Atlassian products during their studies is a great way to start working early on with tools designed for use in professional enterprises.
Git Essentials is the new Atlassian product suite that completely and seamlessly displays the development workflows with Git in software development teams – from agile issue management and repository management to software releases for continuous integration.
In many teams, islands of knowledge are a major topic and great challenge. At the same time, team members ask themselves what areas they should continue improving and training in. This is where a “skill matrix” can provide a starting point for exchange within development teams. This aid helps you process and visualize:
As a follow up on last year’s surprise interview, Sherif Mansour, Atlassian Confluence product manager, talks with Martin Seibert about his Summit experience. Martin liked the road map, that Atlassian gave, announcing live editing and in line editing in Confluence in a future release. He also enjoys the integration of JIRA, Bamboo, and Stash with Confluence.
In general, the establishing of a wiki must be supported through a series of measures. If these activities are successful, the system – as I know from my own experience – will quickly be accepted and used by employees. At //SEIBERT/MEDIA, TWiki has been used since June 2007, now containing a total of eight Webs. The main Web alone grew to contain more than 1000 topics within just a few months.
If you are using several applications in your daily business, the AppStore plugin within the LINCHPIN suite offers you the opportunity to integrate these applications directly in your dashboard. When starting Confluence, you have immediate access to any application that you might be using frequently. In this video, Martin Seibert and Paul Herwarth von Bittenfeld explain how to use the AppStore and demonstrate how to use the admin space.
The digital form of the talk in the hallway, where employees exchange information, news, ideas and project details and receive feedback and input, are a benefit for enterprises. But what are specific use cases for an enterprise microblog? We have collected 36 use cases. After use cases 1 – 12, and 13 to 24, the remaining 12 use cases are collected here.
Whoever is on the lookout for a simpler, slimmer solution that can be implemented much more quickly will find Confluence to be an extremely sophisticated package. In contrast to SharePoint, Confluence can be easily and successfully introduced without complications. And it can even be connected with SharePoint.
