Introduction to the possibilities of Git and Stash We met Jens Schumacher (Group Product Manger Dev Tools) during our last visit to Atlassian …
In the last few months, the Australian software manufacturer Atlassian has established new enterprise concepts for several products, including Confluence, JIRA and Stash, and will continue improving these systems both functionally and to meet the requirements of large companies and groups. The focus of our efforts is on simple scalability and improving the performance of instances in large enterprise environments.
We are often contacted by customers with very rough, technical requirements lists for software projects. In cases like this, the first project step for //SEIBERT/MEDIA is to turn the customer’s requirements list into a product backlog that highlights how the customer benefits from the requirements. This is not a trivial task and requires time and resources. But why should the customer pay for this preparation work that has nothing to do with actually completing the project?
If two users (accidentally) edit the same Confluence document at the same time, data may be lost in some circumstances. Conflicts arise, the changes made by the users are not correctly merged, entries are lost and must be redone. The Edit Lock Confluence plugin developed by //SEIBERT/MEDIA ensures better protection and less confusion by displaying a more visible and interactive warning.
The Duplicate Content Defender plugin is a Confluence extension developed by //SEIBERT/MEDIA that points out similar existing content while creating new wiki pages. When a user creates a new page and enters the title, the plugin reports if there is corresponding or overlapping content. This function is simple and provides a number of benefits.
The Navigation Menu Editor plugin is one of the most visible part of the LINCHPIN social intranet. It offers a user specific navigation, based on the Custom User Profile Plugin. Depending on language, location, department, projects or other criteria, the navigation menu will adjust accordingly. Martin Seibert and Eric Klein give a brief introduction to the Navigation Menu Editor plugin in this video.
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.
