The Confluence user interface cannot be personalized very much and the standard version does not offer a global navigation menu. That’s why //SEIBERT/MEDIA developed the Navigation Menu Editor to solve these issues and to let your company work more efficiently. With this plugin, you can quickly and easily integrate a navigation bar into the Confluence interface so you can access important pages directly. Here are three reasons why this Confluence plugin might interest you.
With the opening of the Atlassian Summit 2013, the Confluence team has released the new version of Atlassian’s social collaboration system. Especially the new Blueprints for spaces and the opportunity to share links easily within Confluence are true highlights. Let’s have a look at the improvements in Confluence 5.3.
We’ve been using the agile framework Scrum to complete software development projects for almost four years now. Many Scrum elements also form the basis of our process model for continuously improving our organization. The internal label for our process is “Agile Org”. In one-month cycles, we think about things we want to change and work on them. The topics vary greatly from improving company strategy and forming more intensive customer relationships to internal issues like creating a good work-life balance.
Atlassian offers returns on licenses within 30 days of purchase. Customers who purchase Atlassian licenses from //SEIBERT/MEDIA have this period of time to reimburse us for the licenses. This is how we conduct the licensing process: When you order a license for an Atlassian product from us, we cover the fees for you. As soon as we receive the license code, we use our credit card to make an advance payment directly to Atlassian for the license fees. We then send you a normal invoice that you must pay within two weeks.
In our article, “Enterprise Wikis: Criteria and important topics in the evaluation of wiki software” we discussed the diverse and unique requirements an enterprise wiki needs to meet. Decisions about choosing the right wiki system cannot be made using generalizations, but rather only by taking into account the specific needs of the company. In this article, we will draw a concrete comparison between the approaches of the Atlasssian Confluence commercial system and the open source systems Foswiki and MediaWiki. What are the strengths of Confluence compared to Foswiki and MediaWiki?
Wikis for intra-company usage are becoming well established as both commercial and open source applications. This article gives an overview of criteria and requirements involved in the decision making process, along with a comparison of our proprietary Wiki Confluence System and its open source competitors, Foswiki and MediaWiki.
All wiki systems have the same basic functions: opening, editing and saving documents. These functions can be covered in a single Wikipedia paragraph. The functions of a more advanced business wiki, however, are more complex. A business wiki is not simply a web lexicon, but rather is intended to systematically handle a variety of processes in the company.
Wikipedia is by far the best-known example of a wiki. This web lexicon is what most people immediately think of when they hear the word wiki. It’s not surprising, since the online encyclopedia is used by millions of people every day. However, Wikipedia is something completely different from a wiki that is used in a corporate intranet.

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.
