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.
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.
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 the first twelve, read more about use cases 13 to 24.
JIRA helps you collaborate more efficiently with your co-workers and spend less time in following up tasks. This user friendly tool, among many other helpful features, lets you enter descriptions of tasks that need to be done, assign them to other employees and set deadlines. It allows you to create issues (tasks) for helpdesk tickets, project tasks, change requests or software bugs.
If in the opening phase of a wiki adoption it should be difficult to activate employees to participate, this is often because employees haven’t been properly brought up to speed and misunderstand the whole idea of a wiki. One symptom of this is the fear of sharing knowledge.
An internal microblog can become a useful channel of communication within an enterprise. Similar to having lunch or coffee together, or chatting in the hallway, employees exchange information, news, ideas or project details in a microblog. Sometimes the posts are time sensitive and important, sometimes they are just about exchanging ideas with colleagues and getting their input. Enterprises can benefit from that. What are specific use cases, and how can the internal tweeting gain strength? We have collected 36 use cases. Here are the first dozen.
Within a company there can be many approaches for the development of texts as well as the sharing of texts for further revision. We could, for example, write a text in Word and then load the final version into the enterprise wiki. We could also send around texts by e-mail, asking colleagues to read them and, if necessary, to make changes. But we could also develop a text directly within a wiki. What should we think of this particular work process?
